Football Dad Wins New F-150 in High School Golf Fundraiser
Dad of Arizona student hit a 174-yard hole-in-one to win a brand new Ford F-150.
On April 28, Scottsdale, Arizona’s Saguaro High School‘s varsity football team held its annual golf fundraiser at the Scottsdale Silverado Golf Course. And while the venue may sport the name of a Chevy, one lucky parent drove home in a brand-new Ford F-150. According to AZ Central, team dad Eric Lee sunk a hole-in-one on the sixth hole, and that hole included a free truck for the first person to hit the cup from the tee. So, Lee actually drove home in the new half-ton pickup.
Saguaro Golf Outing
There are six par-3 holes on the Scottsdale Silverado Golf Course, with the distances ranging from 131 yards to 174 yards. The sixth hole is the longest of the short holes, and perhaps that was why Peoria Ford picked that hole to sponsor as part of the fundraiser. The dealership offered anyone who could get a hole-in-one a new F-150 for free, but with team coach Jason Mohns having never seen a hole-in-one in the fundraiser, the odds weren’t great.
That didn’t stop Eric Lee, dad of Saguaro junior Matthew Lee, from crushing the 174-yard tee shot and dropping a hole-in-one. He was the first person to hit a hole-in-one in the annual fundraiser while also being the first to win a new truck as part of the event.
The Free Truck
There are no details on the truck in question, but based on the features shown in the picture above, it appears to be a 2019 F-150 Lariat, likely with four-wheel-drive. However, even if it was a base F-150 with no options at all, it is still a sweet prize for hitting a hole-in-one in your son’s football fundraising golf tournament.
Lee drove home with a shiny new Ford truck, so he is likely pretty pleased with his son’s decision to play high school football now more than ever.
