It was Bruno Gendron, however, who had the biggest smile on his face following 18 holes of golf.
After all, sinking the first hole-in-one in your life and winning a 2018 KIA Soul would be enough to make anybody smile.
With former New York Islanders star goaltender Billy Smith looking on, Gendron drained his ace on No. 8.
“I have been playing golf for years, but I am not very good at it,” Gendron said.
“I never get a good swing, so I had no idea the ball was going into the hole. Everybody else said, ‘I can’t see the ball,’ it looks like it is gone.”
Gendron didn’t really have any aspirations of greatness when he stepped up to the tee on No. 8.
“All I wanted to do was win the Billy Smith jersey (drawn from all the golfers who were able to out-drive the retired goalie on the hole),” he said.
“I didn’t expect to win the car, a nice KIA.”
