Sean O’Hair’s Hole-in-One at the BMW Championship Earns Four-Year College Scholarship for another Evans Scholar

Lemont, IL - September 11, 2010…
Sean O’Hair scored a hole-in-one today during the third round of the BMW Championship, the third leg in the PGA TOUR Playoffs for the FedExCup. In recognition of O’Hair’s hole-in-one, BMW donated a four-year college scholarship to the Evans Scholars Foundation, which will provide an incremental college scholarship to another deserving caddie for the 2011-2012 school year.

Evans Scholar, Matthew Sachaj, a caddie at Green Acres Country Club in Northbrook, Illinois, met O’Hair and BMW of North America President, Jim O’Donnell, to receive the scholarship check on behalf of the Evans Scholars Foundation. Sachaj graduated from Notre Dame College Prep and is an incoming freshman at Northwestern University.

BMW continued its hole-in-one scholarship tradition, which grants a four-year Evans Scholarship in recognition of any player to score the first hole-in-one on any hole during the tournament. O’Hair holed his tee shot on the 211-yard, par three second hole on Cog Hill Golf & Country Club’s Dubsdread course, where the top 70 golfers on the PGA TOUR are competing this week for the final 30 spots in the TOUR Championship.
