Charity golf tournaments have hole-in-one prizes all the time, usually for something like a new car or a vacation -- and rarely does anyone actually make an ace to win. If someone does hole out, they're usually won by someone in the community but not particularly well-known elsewhere.
But the Nashville Sports Council Golf Tournament on Thursday not only featured an unusual prize, but it was won by Beau Brinkley, who just happens to be the long snapper for the NFL's Tennessee Titans.
According to this story in the Nashville Tennesean, Brinkley aced the par-3, 182-yard eighth hole at Gaylord Springs. And since the tournament was sponsored by Jack Daniel's, Brinkley won himself an entire barrel of single barrel select premium whiskey -- both the contents and the barrel.
How big is a barrel? Well, it holds about 250 bottles of whiskey. Brinkley mentioned later in an interview with ESPN that he'd like to keep the barrel as a reminder of his once-in-a-lifetime shot. And a lifetime of shots, as well.
Although since the traditional celebration for a hole-in-one is drinks on the house, Brinkley's supply of whiskey could already be dwindling.
