On Friday, July 26 at approximately 12:18pm, Devlin Moeller of Milwaukie, Oregon hit the shot of his dreams on hole #4 at Chinook Winds Casino Resort. The Hole in One progressive started at $1,000 on May 1 with $50 added each day until some lucky, skilled, golfer hit the hole in one on this seemingly “easy” short hole. This short par 3 might seem easy, but it’s surrounded by a continuous bunker with a fast green to hit.
“We want to make golfing fun and on a short par3 it gives most amateur golfers a great chance at hitting the big prize”, said Lee Johnson, Director of Hotel and Golf Operations. The yardage on hole #4 ranges from 90-117 yards throughout the contest. Today the hole in one was hit with a Taylor Made RSI approach wedge from 96 yards playing a Callaway golf ball.
Devlin’s hole in one was witnessed by his four golfing buddies and an on course camera.
The progressive will restart at $1,000 as of Saturday, July 27 and will once again have $50 added each day until another lucky golfer strikes. The Progressive Hole in One contest runs through Monday, September 30 so get as many rounds in as possible to give yourself a better chance at that prize pool!
