PARK CITY -- A Utah man made a million-dollar shot Tuesday at a charity golf tournament.

Jason Hargett was playing in the Mark Eaton Celebrity Golf Tournament to benefit diabetes treatment. One of the attractions of the tournament was that the best five shots on one par-three qualified to try for a million dollars if they could make a hole-in-one.

Hargett qualified, and, yes, he really did make it.

"It was a 150-yard shot. I hit a nine iron. Ya know, weirdest thing that ever happened in my life," Hargett said.

Mark Eaton himself presented Hargett with the ceremonial million-dollar check Wednesday.

Hargett says he was a late add to the tournament, at the request of a friend,and almost didn't play because of a sore wrist.
