Video: Hanson's 222-Yard Ace Gives Fan Year Off On Mortgage

Stellar and lucrative shot (for a fan) from Peter Hanson, hitting a 222-yard 4-iron on Congressional's second hole.

The ace in round three of the Quicken Loans National means some lucky fan gets a year off on their Quicken Loan, according to SB Nation's Brendan Porath.

With Quicken Loans now the title sponsor at this tourney, the ace also resulted in an award for Arline Deacon of Fayetteville, Ga. As the winner of a random drawing triggered by the hole-in-one, she will now have her mortgage payments taken care of for a year. Quicken will now do that for every ace at PGA Tour events for the rest of the year (Hanson's is the 11th of this season).

Do the winners still get to take the deduction on the interest? Are the 'winnings' taxable, like hole-in-one cars and stuff people win on game shows?

I'd seen fine print while at congressional this week that the payments were "up to $1,000" a month...

Up to $12,000. Wow, they are big spenders. Given how rare holes in one are it seems like a weak prize. A few month of your mortgage for every eagle up to 1,000 would be more sporting.

Good gesture by Quicken Loans, Despite the cynicism above, I'm sure the recipients were not complaining!!
