Mark Twain said that golf is a good walk spoiled. That may be, but occasionally it can be out of this world. A golfer recently sunk a hole in one and received an extraordinary prize for the feat. On the weekend golfer Andy Sullivan was taking part in the KLM Open in the Netherlands, and aced the par three 15th hole. Tournament sponsors XCOR Space Expeditions rewarded the British golfer with a 30-minute flight into space, at 330,000 feet above Earth.
Sullivan says he’s “not the best flyer” but will take the trip anyway. Not a bad day at the course at all. Golf protocol dictates that if you sink a hole in one you must buy a drink for everyone on the clubhouse. It doesn’t say if that rule is enforced if the golfer is in outer space.
