Former Crusader wins $10k for hole-in-one

By Paul Gerke. CREATED Jun 20, 2014

Northwest Nazarene University held a major fund-raising event for its athletic department Friday, "The Legends" golf tournament at Ridgecrest in Nampa. Dozens of respectable golfers attended, including former Crusader Davis Halle, who left the scramble $10,000 richer, thanks to hitting a hole-in-one on the par-three 8th.

"I hit the shot... It had a little bit of a draw on it. It felt really good," explained Halle. "It bounced twice, and then just disappeared. I threw the club up, and threw my glove off. I was just like 'No way!'"

The shot marked the fourth hole-in-one of Halle's golf career, and the first since high school. He couldn't have picked a better time for the shot- since he just graduated, he can accept the money without it restricting his athletic eligibility.

"It was unreal," said Halle. "Just a feeling you can't describe."

Halle says the money will probably be invested or go towards his student loans.
