Talk about a stroke of luck - literally.

On Saturday night during the Mississippi State-Auburn basketball game, Patrick Burch stepped to the baseline with putter in hand. Across the court (95 feet away) sat a hole hardly bigger than a golf ball itself.

The challenge? Sink the putt and win a $15,000 car (or you could put the money towards a more expensive car).
