I have never hit a hole-in-one on the golf course, but many golfers have accomplished it. Yet European Tour player Andy Sullivan’s hole in one this past weekend means a bit more than ones in the past. After making a hole-in-one on the 163-yard 15th hole at the Kennemer Golf & Country Club in the KLM Open, Sullivan could be blasting off into outer space.
As part of a promotion at the Amsterdam tournament, XCOR Aerospace offered a space flight to the first player to make an ace on the 15th hole. Sullivan aced the 15th on Sunday and ended up shooting a final-round score of 67.
XCOR Aerospace is an Amsterdam-based company that will offer trips to space for the public starting late in 2015. The trips cost between $95,000 and $115,000.
According to the company’s website, space tourists will travel on the Lynx Mark II, a two-seat piloted space transport vehicle. Total flight time is 62 minutes, and at the highest point, travelers will experience five to six minutes of weightlessness.
‘I’m not sure yet,” Sullivan said of joining a XCOR space flight next year. “I’ll see what the missus says!”
To kick off the NFL season, Campbell’s Chunky soup celebrated its newest Mama’s Boy – Seattle Seahawks cornerback, Richard Sherman – by creating a statue lined with Campbell’s Chunky soup cans and labels outside CenturyLink Field in Seattle, Washington, on Thursday, Sept. 4, prior to the home opener against the Green Bay Packers. The structure commemorated Sherman’s iconic defensive play during the 2014 NFC championship, which helped punch Seattle’s ticket to Super Bowl XLVIII. In this photo, Richard’s mother, Beverly, poses with Seahawks fans that co-star in the new Chunky Mama’s Boy commercial.
Not only did the Seahawks put a whoppin on the Green Bay Packers last night, the team brought back some players from back in the day. Former Seattle Seahawks stars Joey Galloway, Jordan Babineaux, Jim Zorn and Manu Tuiasosopo celebrated the start of the 2014 NFL season with fans at McDonald’s exclusive tailgate party yesterday in Seattle. In its second year as the official restaurant sponsor of the NFL, McDonald’s is celebrating football fans’ love for the game with a new mindset of tailgating and exclusive football content and prizes for customers.
