Reeves wins Hole in One Finals

Posted: Updated:

Jeff Reeves is the winner of the UT-Tyler Patriot Million Dollar Hole in One Challenge.

Held at Hollytree Country Club, Reeves bested a field of 50 to take the top prize.

Golfers had the chance to hit at three holes on the 11th hole.

One hole was worth a new car, another for $25,000 and the third hole was the grand prize of $1,000,000.

Michael Cearley came closest to an ace, coming just feet away from the $25,000 pin.

However, since they measure from the million dollar pin, Cearley finished 3rd at a distance of 12 feet, 7 inches.

Caleb Cheavens finished 2nd at 11 feet 6 inches.

Reeves, the 31st hitter, dropped is shot in at 8 feet 3 inches.

He wins round-trip airfare to anywhere in the continental United States.

"I am a thankful guy, so I am getting emotional," said Reeves after the win. "I love my wife and my family and thank God for this opportunity to get away. She [his wife] just went through a bunch of school and she is a graduate of UT, it will be a blessing for us to get away and spend some time together."

After the competition, Suddenlink presented UT-Tyler with a donation of $25,000 towards the school's scholarship fund.
