Scottsdale, Ariz. – The winner of the 27th Annual Wells Fargo Fiesta Bowl Million Dollar Hole-In-One presented by FOX Sports Arizona had a familiar face.
Dave Reiter of Glendale, Ariz. won the Fiesta Bowl Million Dollar Hole-In-One tournament for the second time. He won the tournament in 2004, and finished third last year.
Reiter had two shots in the finals. His first attempt did not land on the green. His second, however, rolled just 2’ 2 7/8” from the hole, earning him a one-year membership at Wigwam Golf Club and a set of PING golf clubs.
No one became a millionaire this year, but the top three shots in the finals had their choice of three fabulous prizes.
33 golfers took 42 shots at the $1 million hole, flanked by two holes worth $50,000. Golfers qualified for the finals during preliminaries that ran from Nov. 3-13 at the Arizona Biltmore Golf Club.
Second-place finisher Mary Ann Johnston came up just short on her bid to become the first ever female winner, landing her shot 8’ 3/4” from the hole. Johnston chose the cruise for two to anywhere in the world courtesy of Holland America Line.
Third-place finisher and Hole-In-One veteran Mike Barter earned three shots in the finals by nailing three aces during the 10-day preliminaries. His best shot landed 8’ 7” from the $1 million hole, winning a one-year membership to Encanterra Golf Club.
For only $1 a shot, more than 1,000 golfers of varying skill levels shot for a hole-in-one. The top 25 finishers each day received prizes including PING irons and golf bags, complimentary foursomes at the Valley’s best golf courses and certificates for Arizona’s finest restaurants.
