Andrew Johnston Hits a Hole-in-One at BMW PGA Championship, Wins an M4 Coupe 1 photo
At 26, British golfer Andrew Johnston is positioned at No. 151 in the World Ranking, which means he still has a long way to go to sit next to the top 10 players. It doesn’t mean last weekend wasn’t a number one game for him since he aced the 184-yard par-3 10th after his approach took two hops on the green and disappeared into the cup.
With such achievements comes great repay which, in this case, takes the form of a beautiful BMW M4 Coupe. The game is part of the BMW PGA Championship running each May over the West Course at the Wentworth Club in Surrey, England. Often regarded as the flagship event on the European Tour, it has usually had the highest prize money of any event that the tour organizes.

Andrew Johnston may not be any Colin Montgomerie (who became the only player to win three years in a row), but it doesn’t mean he didn’t make the crowd go wild with his venture the other day.

Since we’re auto people, we have to admit we were curious to find out a litte more of the golf world. For those who are not familiar to the game, we'll tell you that a hole-in-one is what you call the moment a ball hit from a tee shot finishes in the cup.

This awards the player a score of one for the hole. Holes-in-one most commonly occur on par 3 holes, the shortest distance holes on a standard size golf course. It is the shortest distance, but that doesn’t mean it’s not an impressive hit.

In fact, Johnston’s deed seemed like a surprise for the player himself too, judging by the way he reacted after he won. As you can see in the short clip below, moments later the ball disappeared into the cup, he was chest-bumping a person in the audience.

Golf fans will say the man was celebrating his hole-in-one hit, but we know he was, in fact, happy with the Bimmer Andrew received as a prize.
