Wins trip to space after hole-in-one

15 Sep, 2014

Professional golfer Sullivan wins a flight to space after scoring a hole-in-one at the KLM Open in Amsterdam. XCOR Aerospace offers a 62-minute space flight to any golfer who gets a hole-in-one at the 15th at Kennemer Golf and Country Club.

My caddie just shouted to me, ‘We’re going to space!’. I was in hysterics. It’s just an unreal experience. I didn’t play great through the round and then I hit a shot like that. I’m not sure if I’ll go, I’ll check with the missus. I’m not great with heights or flying! I might have to pluck up some coverage. I don’t think spaceman is a new nickname for me. My daughter will think I’m the best dad in the world — a professional golfer and an astronaut, she’s got the best dad in the world! I’m going to have to pluck up some serious courage, but it is a once in a lifetime experience, so I’m going to have to do it.
