Golfer Gets Hole-In-One, Wins Weight In Ham

For golfer, Elliot Saltman getting his third hole-in-one of the European season turned out to be a rather tasty and memorable moment.

Saltman was playing in the Madrid Masters and got a hole-in-one which won him a rather large quantity of ham:

Saltman's ace came at El Encin's 204-yard third hole and it earned the 29-year-old Scot his weight in Iberico ham. Weighing in at 240 lbs, Saltman can look forward to dining out on his prize, worth more than 8,000 euros ($10,722), for some weeks.

"This is going to last me until next Christmas, never mind this one," Saltman told Reuters. "I've been trying to lose some weight but I'm glad now I've not lost that much."
So for anyone looking for some ham, just place a call to Briton Elliot Saltman and he'll probably sent you some.
