Golfer Comes Agonisingly Close To Hole In One And Winning $120,000 Car

David Howell was less than an inch away from driving away with a BMW 7 series.

The Englishman might be relatively unknown to our American cousins given that his career has been blighted by a recurring back injury. For the purists Howell is a phenomenal ball striker and a decent bloke on top of all that ability. The BMW masters kicked off in Shanghai yesterday and Sergio Garcia took the lead with a superb 64. It’s a relatively strong European field with a few ‘notable’ Americans staying for the event at Lake Malaren Golf Club. John Daly is 8 shots back shooting a level par 72. Come on big John!
