Hole In WOW!

Golfer Wins Mercedes In Hole-In-One Contest On Par 3 Shot!

Hole In WOW!For 25 years now a luxury car has been parked on a tee box at the Roxiticus Golf Club to support the Somerset YMCA in Mendham. For 25 years many swings have sent golf balls flying towards the mark, but no one ever nailed the hole-in-one to claim the prize, until recently that is.

With a a 181-yard tee shot, Brian Meagher of the Basking Ridge section of Bernards sunk the hole in one that was sponsored by Rod Ryan, owner of Open Road Auto Group, and the drive earned him the privilege of driving again, this time in an awesome Mercedes Benz!

Meagher who had participated in the event for several years never imagined that this day would be his lucky day. Meagher was golfing with his boss and long-time friend Eric Roos who had gone first. Meagher stepped up on his go and struck the ball watching it soar about 150 feet in the air. When the ball dropped, it seemingly vanished.

Meagher states, “In disbelief, I said to Roos, ‘Where’s my ball?’ And he said, ‘It’s in the hole.’ I said, ‘No, it can’t be,’ He said, ‘Yes, you got a hole-in-one,’ ” said Meagher. “I didn’t know the appropriate response, except to give high-fives and hugs.”

So let’s put this into perspective. The odds of an amateur golfer making a hole-in-one on a par three shot is roughly 12,500 to 1 according to Golf Digest. The 12th hole, one of five par-3 holes at Roxiticus, had two witnesses to ensure that the shot was valid. Once his shot is properly verified, Meagher will get the keys to the car.

Rod Ryan, the owner of Open Road Auto Group, provided the hole-in-one car from for the event, as he has done for the past 25 years. He has long been a supporter of the Y, having served on the Board of Directors and the Endowment Committee. He is currently on the Community Advisory Board.

“I was delighted to hear the news. We do hole-in-one cars all the time at different events and hope that someone wins. This is the first time there was a winner. We couldn’t be happier for Meagher,” said Ryan, who provided the car from Open Road’s Mercedes-Benz of Bridgewater dealership.

Proceeds from the benefit Golf Classic help contribute to the Y’s ability to provide financial assistance and mission-based programs to those who struggle financially, physically and emotionally. This year, 83 golfers played in the Y’s Golf Classic.

“We are thrilled for Meagher,” said David M. Carcieri, president and CEO of Somerset County YMCA. “It was an extremely difficult shot to make, and incredibly, it was the last shot by the last golfer on the last hole. It’s special for us that his win came on the 25th anniversary of our Golf Classic.”
