Leave it to our man John Daly to make a hole-in-one during a pro-am with a free car involved and not land the new wheels.

That is exactly what happened on Monday at the Humana Challenge Pro-Am, when Daly knocked in a tee shot on a hole that was advertising a free Hyundai, but was not awarded the car because it was Daly's second swing on the hole.

According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, Daly was on the par-3 7th on the Nicklaus Private Course at PGA West when he made a nice swing and turned to the Callaway rep to let him know that the shot felt solid.

"I didn't even look at the shot," Daly said after the round. "I leaned over to get my tee and was telling the Callaway representative that it felt pretty good. He said, ‘Good, because it just went in the hole.’ "

It was Daly's first ever swing with the new 9-iron, and while the ball did go in the cup for the ace, it was the mulligan that doomed Daly's chances at a new ride.

While not getting the car might be a bummer, it's Daly's play last week that should be reason to celebrate. The 47-year-old shot a third round 64 at the Sony Open that helped him finish T-32, a good start to the 2014 season for the two-time major champion.
