Professional golfer James Heath scored a hole-in-one at the BMW International Open and was rewarded with a brand-new i8.

While Heath has been struggling on the European Tour, he managed to shoot a hole-in-one on the 16th hole which is a par 3 with a distance of 156 meters (511.8 feet).

According to a clearly excited Heath, “I am blown away. I’m virtually speechless. The BMW i8 is a stunning car and worth 137.000 Euros. It more than triples the highest cheque I’ve ever made."

BMW has been hosting the International Open for 26 years but this is only the fifth time a golfer has received a car for a hole-in-one. Previous winners took home a 640i Gran Coupe, 535i sedan, a 325i convertible and a Z8.
