CHARLESTON, WEST VIRGINIA- Two holes-in-one are in dispute since golf fans at the Greenbriar Classic are due $192,000 in payouts.
The tournament's underwriters sued in federal court against the Greenbriar Classic's nonprofit financial arm called Old White Charities. George McNeill and Justin Thomas each made aces from 137-yards on the par 3 18th hole, which prompted the payout to fans. But the London-based underwriters say Old White Charities had agreed to a minimum distance of 170-yards.
Fans in the 18th hole grandstand were supposed to receive $100 for the first hole-in-one, $500 for the second and $1,000 for a third.
The cash was handed out by the tournament chairman and the owner of the Greenbriar resort.
