Golfer sinks hole-in-one, wins a Porsche

Aug 1, 2017, 1:22 PM


Marcel Siem came to play the 17th hole at Green Eagle Golf Course with his bag and clubs — when he left, he also had a new Porsche.

All it took was a hole-in-one, in which he didn’t waste any time rolling the ball to the cup.

Like a Steph Curry three-pointer that doesn’t touch the rim, Siem didn’t even touch the green — dropping the ball directly into the cup from about 170 yards out.

Siem did get a little help from the flag stick, and to be honest, the folks at the Porsche European Open were probably happy about that.

At this year’s Master’s, Russell Henley showed what a straight club-to-cup shot can do to a hole.

Winning a car from a golf shot seems like a once-in-a-lifetime thing, but it’s not for Siem, who has already won a new set of wheels from an amazing shot.

The first time, he won a Volvo after holing out for an eagle in a 2014 tournament in South Africa.
