Three Dog Night recorded a hit song titled ONE. The group with its hit popularized the notion that, “One is the loneliest number.” However, the song had to settle for a par-5 on the billboard charts back in the day, but clearly the Grammy-nominated band didn’t play golf or else their lyrics might have been different.
One shot can change a players’ life. At the upcoming FBR Open, a number of lucky golf fans along with a host of local media personalities and tournament sponsors will tee-it-up for charity in a unique closest-to-the-pin contest on Wednesday, January 28th, 2009. The backdrop is none other than the infamous par-3, 16th hole at the TPC Scottsdale. You may remember Tiger’s ace which rocked the golf world and made highlight reels around the country as beer cups descended to the ground as #1 celebrated his one with multiple fist pumps!
Dubbed the “Shot At Glory,” the friendly competition will feature roughly 30 participants and will take place following the completion of the FBR Open’s Silver Pro-Am.
The Thunderbirds, tournament hosts, will award more than $100,000 to the charities chosen by each competitor that participate in the event. Plus, if anyone makes a hole-in-one, $1,000,000 will be divided between the winner and the charity of their choice (paid in a multi-year annuity) and he or she could quite easily be singing another hit by Three Dog Night, "Joy to the World."
If no one makes a hole-in-one, $40,000 will be donated to the charity of the participant who is closest-to-the-pin, while $25,000 and $15,000 will be donated to the 2nd and 3rd place finishers, respectively.
