Man Makes Hole-in-One, Gets New Car


Lynchburg, VA - Calvin Kennon got a big prize for making a hole in one at London Downs earlier this month, and now he has a new ride.

Kennon played in the first-annual Lynchburg Shrine Club Golf Tournament when he made a hole-in-one at the par-3 3rd hole.

That hole offered a new car from Billy Craft Automotive to anyone who made a hole-in-one.

So Wednesday, Kennon got behind the wheel of his new 2013 Honda Civic four-door LX.

"We're awfully proud that we are able to put on this first golfing tournament for the Shriners in the Lynchburg area," said Jim Hyler - Shriners :09 -- .

"It's a great prize to win and very excited about it, but also excited that the Shriners had such a good turnout and that they were able to raise a lot of money and bring awareness to the good work that they do," said Kennon.

The golf tournament raised $12,500. All the proceeds go to Shriners Hospitals for children.
