Jason Bohn has three more payments from the $1 million he won at the 1992 Hole-in-One Shootout while still a student at Alabama. He turned pro to accept the prize and has never looked back.
Nor does he ever tire of talking about the ace.
"I hope I'm 85 years old and people are asking me about that million-dollar shot," Bohn said. "It's the whole reason why I sit here. There is no question, a big career changer. I love talking about it. I never will get sick and tired of talking about it."
Bohn had something else to discuss on Thursday when he shot a 63 to tie Jeff Overton for the lead at the Crowne Plaza Invitational. Included in that number was a par at the fourth hole -- a 247-yard par 3.
And how does that compare to the one where Bohn got his ace?
"There is no really comparison," Bohn said. "It was 135 yards. It was about half the distance. That was a life-changer. If I made an ace on No. 4, it probably will not be a life-changer, but I will still take it, trust me."
