VIDEO: Golfer Wins BMW i8 With Surreal Hole-In-One!

Well, a BMW i8. Let’s be honest, who doesn’t want one? Well, golfer Chris Wood probably had the same thoughts on his mind on May 24th, when he set out to compete in the final day of the 2015 BMW PGA Championship.

Poised as a prize for the man who could nail a hole-in-one was a BMW i8: a RM1.18mil hybrid sports car which was only just launched in Malaysia. Having had the opportunity to get up close with the vehicle at the recent BMW World Malaysia event, it’s nice to know a pro golfer has just won one, for something that can only be categorised as blind luck. Lovely, isn’t it? Not for us, at least.

We've seen a 12-year-old girl win a Volvo XC60 in Malaysia in a similar fashion, but come on... an i8?!?!

But Wood wasn’t the only one to manage a hole-in-one at the event. Four other golfers managed the feat in the days before, but the BMW i8 was only put up for grabs on the final day of the event.

SkySports reported Chris Wood to say, “Last night at the hotel I bumped into Miguel (Jiminez) and I said 'Another hole-in-one, when is it my turn?' All the players look on the 14th on Tuesday when we have a practice round and we think, 'Wouldn't it be nice, a BMW i8?' You never think that it's going to happen to you.

"I hit a great shot and it was a bit of a delayed reaction because you hear two cheers; one sounded like it just missed and the second one it went in. I think my caddie was more excited than I was."

Anyways... Kudos to you, Mr Chris Wood.

Here’s a clip of the BMW i8-winning shot:

Chris finds equal pleasures in reviewing fast cars as much as the everyday workhorses. He maintains a passion for European makes, Formula 1, playing the electric guitar and spending endless hours on the PlayStation; first-person shooters and the Gran Turismo franchise remain favourites. He also finds it strange to have written this in the third person.
