84-year-old ecstatic (and shocked) after she sinks full-court putt, wins new car

A senior’s miraculous hole-in-one won her a new car, and her reaction was priceless.

Mary Ann Wakfield, 84, was plucked from the crowd at a basketball game at the University of Mississippi over the weekend. She was handed a golf club and given the chance to putt for a brand-new 2020 Nissan Altima.

To get the keys to her new wheels, donated by a local dealership, Wakfield had to nail a seemingly impossible 28-metre putt all the way across the basketball court.

In video footage of the promotional segment of the Ole, Miss., men’s basketball game, Wakfield holds the golf club and eyes the ball. A man with a microphone points to the hole and says: “Let’s see what she’s got.”

Much to the crowd’s delight, she did it, and even she couldn’t believe it.

She takes a gentle swing and the golf ball rolls perfectly down the court and right into the hole. The camera pans back to Wakfield’s face, her jaw dropped in shock. The crowd erupts in surprised cheers.
