Joe Sakic Hits A $1 Million Hole-In-One (Video)
During his NHL career, Joe Sakic was known for his ability to fire a blistering wrist shot into the smallest of holes. That was how he scored a majority of his 625 career goals.
Well apparently Sakic also has the ability to fire golf balls into the smallest of holes with his 8-iron. He did just that on the waterfront par-3 17th at the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship at Lake Tahoe on Sunday, and earned $1-million as a result.
As the rules of the tournament stipulate, Sakic was required to donate half of that paycheck to Lance Armstrong’s Livestrong Foundation for cancer research, but $500,000 is still a pretty sweet prize for the retired center.
Here is a look at the hole-in-one.
