Louis Trades Pro-Am Prize For An Excavator

An unbylined AP story says Louis Oosthuizen negotiated a swap of the car his pro-am group won for a ahole-in-one excavator to use on his South African farm.

Yes, that's right, they had an excavator for a hole-in-one!

“I’ve been nagging my wife for a few years that I want something on the farm, as there are a few stumps and things I need to get rid of,” he said.

“And that’s why I stood over that putt on 18 for a bit longer than normal. So I’m going to play around with it and might dig out a few bunkers.”
