The Tom Hatcher charity golf tournament will host a unique event in conjunction with the tournament that could net a winner $1 million.

Players can qualify for the finals through a closest-to-the-pin contest at the Lambert Acres Golf Course driving range from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on July 10-11.

Five balls cost $10 during qualifying. The five players who are closest to the pin during qualifying will advance to the finals, which will be held at the conclusion of the afternoon round of the tournament on July 19.

One of the five qualifiers will be drawn at random and given one shot at a 165-yard hole (150 yards for women). If he or she makes a hole-in-one, the prize is $1 million.

If the million dollar shot is not holed, the four remaining finalists will be drawn at random to determine who will hit first for the opportunity to win $250 through a second chance shot by sinking a shot from where the million dollar shot came to rest.

If no participant makes the second chance shot, the closest to the pin will win $100.

Players do not have to play in the July 19 tournament to win the prize.
