Macquarie Media’s Million Dollar Hole in One

Staff Writer

There are legions of ‘golf tragics’ across the country and a lucky few were this morning given the chance to swing the club for a Million Dollars.

Macquarie Media partnered with Channel 7’s The Wall and the Emirates Australian Open to offer six listeners the chance to take a shot at winning $1,000,000.

It was simple. Score a hole-in-one and take home a big cheque. But how did it come about?

Over the past few weeks, 2GB, 4BC and 3AW invited listeners to enter The Million Dollar Hole in One competition; selecting a presenter they wanted play for and answer in 50 words or less why.

This morning, during the 2017 Emirates Australian Golf Open, the finalists had their chance on the greens of The Australian Golf Club in Sydney.

As they warmed up to take their shot at a million dollars, the Alan Jones Breakfast Show broadcast live from the fairway.

It was always going to be a big ask and unfortunately, no one was able to get the hole in one. But there was an experience money can’t buy: the chance to walk the course and play a few holes with the pros.

And the golf tragics were happy.
