Jason Day Sinks Hole-in-One, Wins A BMW M760i, And Donates it To Charity

Jason Day Sinks Hole-in-One, Wins A BMW M760i, And Donates it To Charity

Bimmer also threw in an extra $100,000 donation for good measure

Professional golfer Jason Day is one of the best golfers in the world today. He’s currently ranked sixth in the world rankings and is the owner of one golf major (the 2015 PGA Championship). He’s also an all-around good guy who won a BMW M760i over the weekend after sinking a hole-in-one on the 17th hole during his second round at the 2017 BMW Championships. The achievement itself is incredible, but Day put a nice cherry on it by actually donating the car he had just won to the Evans Scholars Foundation, which will in turn auction it to raise funds for college scholarships among caddies.

To make this story even better, BMW is throwing in another $100,000 to the foundation to commemorate Day’s achievement. The Australian golfer ultimately finished fourth in the tournament, seven strokes behind winner Marc Leishman. He may not have gotten the result he wanted, but you could argue that his hole-in-one was the most important hole of the tournament because of the circumstances surrounding it. He wins an M760i, donates it to charity so it can auction the luxury sedan, and then Bimmer adds another $100,000 donation to cap it off. There are a lot of winners in this story, not the least of which is the person who could end up with the M760i. Remember, the luxury sedan is probably the closest thing BMW has to a full-fledged flagship. It features the automaker’s newest and most important technologies, including a massive 6.6-liter V-12 engine that produces 601 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque. All that power is challenged to the sedan’s xDrive AWD system courtesy of an eight-speed automatic transmission, which in turn allows it to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.6 seconds before hitting an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph.
