ASBELL MAKES HOLE-IN-ONE, WINS $25,000 AT NATIONAL CAR RENTAL PGA ASSISTANT CHAMPIONSHIP

October 31st, 2014

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (Oct. 31, 2014) – For the second year in a row, a player in the National Car Rental PGA Assistant Championship field has won $25,000 for a hole-in-one on the par-3 17th on the Wanamaker Course at PGA Golf Club.
 
Michael Asbell, PGA Assistant Professional at The Sagamore Club in Noblesville, Indiana, made his first competitive hole-in-one during the second round of the 2014 National Car Rental PGA Assistant Championship.
 
Asbell aced the 205-yard hole with a 3-iron, claiming the $25,000 National Car Rental Hole-In-One Challenge Grand Prize.
 
“My ball striking was a little off today, so I smoothed out my tempo on that shot and it never left the pin,” said Asbell. “My brother is here this week, and my dad was up at the green and watched it go in the hole. That makes it more special than anything, that they were able to witness that moment.”
 
He shot a second-round 71 and is 3-under par through 36 holes of the Championship.
 
Asbell’s hole-in-one follows the ace of Logan Watts, PGA Apprentice at Louisville (Kentucky) Country Club, who made his hole-in-one during the opening round of the 2013 National Car Rental PGA Assistant Championship.
