No Hole In One Prize at The Kraft

This week marks the first major championship of the season on the LPGA Tour at the Kraft Nabisco Championship. Ahead of the tournament, Kraft, in association with Toyota, hosted the Toyota/Kraft Nabisco Hole-in-One Contest at the Palmer Course at Mission Hills. The contestants, 10 amateur qualifiers paired with 10 LPGA Tour pros, were set up from 135 yards on the 18th hole at the Palmer Course. At stake was a $1,000,000 grand prize for any golfer lucky enough to make a hole in one, along with a brand-new Toyota Corolla automobile for whichever amateur was closest to the pin.

Unfortunately, no golfers were able to sink a hole in one during the competition, nevertheless, Doug Montgomery from Cathedral City walked away with the keys to a new Toyota by leaving his shot a mere 9 feet, 7 inches from the cup. Who gets the car? Well, Doug is giving the Corolla to his wife as an early anniversary gift. Also competing in the event were defending Kraft Nabisco champion Morgan Pressel, past Kraft winners Patricia Meunier-Lebouc and Pat Hurst and LPGA players Louise Friberg, Brittany Lincicome, Mhairi McKay Jeong Jang, Janice Moody, Jimin Kang and Christina Kim.

The Kraft Nabisco Championship, the LPGA Tour's first major of the 2008 season, kicks off on Thursday at Mission Hills where Morgan Pressel will defend.
