Over the moon: Sullivan's ace earns trip to space


Andy Sullivan: To infinity ... and beyond? 

The European Tour player recorded an ace Sunday at the KLM Open, earning him a round-trip ticket to space. 

Any player who records a hole-in-one on the 163-yard 15th hole at Kennemer Golf & Country Club will receive a trip to outer space aboard the Lynx Mark 1. The unusual prize, valued at about $100,000, was courtesy of sponsor XCOR Space Expeditions.

Earlier this week on Twitter, Sullivan said about the potential trip 39 miles into space: “I’ll win a trip home.” 

Sullivan finished the event at 12 under, in solo third. When asked whether he would make the trip next year, he told reporters, “I’m not sure yet. I’ll see what the missus says.”
