Who says it doesn't pay to golf? Brad Clare from Springfield holds the keys to his new 2009 PT Cruiser as he shakes the hand of Scott Soebbing, general manager of Lincoln Chrysler Dodge Jeep. To the right is Brad's wife, Sarah, and Lincoln College golf co-chair Rick Samuels. Brad got a hole-in-one on the 172-yard 15th hole at the Elks Club during the annual Lincoln College Golf Outing for Scholarship and won the new car. Brad was a last-minute replacement for a friend who couldn't attend, but he says he will definitely be back next year.

More pictures of the car-winning moment are below in Top Stories.
