WOMAN, 84, SINKS PUTT ACROSS BASKETBALL COURT TO WIN NEW CAR

Ole Miss Putt

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) – An 84-year-old woman is celebrating after she won a new car by sinking a putt across the entire length of the basketball court at the University of Mississippi.

Mary Ann Wakfield made the 94-foot putt during a promotional segment at Saturday’s game between Ole Miss and Alabama.

The crowd erupted into applause and Wakfield flashed an astonished grin after she hit a golf ball that rolled from one end line to the other before dropping into a flag-marked hole.

Wakfield’s prize is a 2020 Nissan Altima.
