Montreal Canadiens forward Scott Gomez won a $50,000 car at his own charity golf tournament on Thursday, the Anchorage Daily News reports.

Gomez won the Acura MD X by hitting a hole-in-on at the Scotty Gomez Foundation Celebrity Golf Tournament. It came on the par-3 sixth hole at Eagleglen Golf Course in Gomez's hometown of Anchorage.

Gomez used a 6-iron.

"It kept rolling and then it disappeared," he said.

Gomez said the car would be used by the Foundation.

"The guy wins a car at his own tournament. Can you believe it?" said Marten Martensen, owner of Continental Motors, which provided the prize.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
