Bud Cauley's Sunday hole-in-one earned everybody in the stands $100

It's unusual for any golf course to end on a par-3. The normal finishing hole is a long par-4 or even a risk-reward type of hole like the par-5 finishing hole at the BMW PGA Championship, but you don't normally see a golf tournament decided with this distance.

Since the Greenbrier Classic is one of the few that concludes with a par-3, they ran a promotion this week for fans sitting around the 18th green. If a PGA Tour play knocks his tee shot in for a hole-in-one and you are in the stands on the 18th, you win a cool $100.

Bud Cauley made this promotion a reality on Sunday when he hit a beautiful tee shot on the final hole that landed a few feet short, rolled out perfectly and dropped in for the hole-in-one.

The fans got some cash in their pockets, Cauley closed with an eagle for a smooth final round 64 and the Greenbrier got to boast that their awesome promotion on the final hole paid off, literally.
