So my father-in-law gets to drive the new S550
Richardson, Texas (PRWEB) August 28, 2009
How many fathers say, "No guy is good enough for my daughter?" Although Tim Ozark's father-in-law probably never thought that, he certainly wouldn't say it today. That's because Ozark recently presented his wife's dad the keys--and title--to a brand new 2009 Mercedes-Benz S550 4Matic Sedan valued at nearly $100,000.
Tim Ozark, who manages a financial company in Chicago, didn't buy the car. He won it as a hole-in-one prize sponsored by Mercedes-Benz of Littleton, Colorado who covered the prize through National Hole-In-One Association, headquartered in Richardson, Texas. National Hole-In-One Association is a prize promotion insurance company that makes it easy for organizations to offer large prizes for charity and corporate events.
Tim Ozark scored the ace in the Mercedes-Benz of Littleton Corporate Cup at Red Sky Golf Club's Fazio Course in Wolcott, Colorado, near the legendary Vail and Beaver Creek Mountain Resorts. The 158-yard eight-iron shot on the 17th hole was the 59-year-old golfer's first-ever hole-in-one and it came at a very opportune time!
"I hit it high and straight, but lost sight of it," Ozark recalls. "I heard it hit the pin, but I wasn't sure if it went in." Then, the spotter shouted, "It's in the hole! It's in the hole!" And the celebration began.
Tim, who says he's been golfing for about 17 years, drives a Porsche Turbo and his wife already drives a Mercedes-Benz--a CLS55 AMG. "So my father-in-law gets to drive the new S550," he explains.
