Golfer hits hole-in-one to win a 2019 Chevrolet Camaro
Kohler, WI, August 19, 2019 – What started out as a beautiful morning for golf at Blackwolf Run, became a magical day for Cambellsport resident Craig Hatch, who aced the 17th hole at Blackwolf Run’s River Course to win a 2019 Chevrolet Camaro from Van Horn Automotive Group.
Hatch, a brain cancer survivor himself, was participating in the annual Make-A-Wish Wisconsin golf outing, sponsored by Sargento and Johnsonville. Van Horn Automotive was the sponsor of two, hole-in-one contests at Blackwolf Run. With an 8 iron in hand, Hatch approached the 154-yard 17th hole of the River Course for his first tee shot of the day during a shotgun start. Hatch stated, “I didn’t think the ball actually went in! It was my first shot of the day and I was in disbelief. As the witness walked to the hole to verify that it was in there, I ran next to her because I couldn’t believe it. It was my first hole in one and my first time golfing in the Make-A-Wish golf outing.”
“This is my second time volunteering as a hole-in-one contest witness for the Make-A-Wish golf outing, said Sunday Strong, Executive Assistant at Van Horn Automotive Group. “It’s such a fun day for everyone. I’ve seen many golfers get close, but never make a hole-in-one; so to see Mr. Hatch achieve this feat was truly an exciting experience.” Teresa Van Horn, Co-CEO of Van Horn Automotive Group added, “We enjoy sponsoring great causes like Make-A-Wish alongside other area businesses to thank our communities for their patronage.”

The Electric Chevrolet Volt is spotted near Sheboygan, WI.
The Chevrolet Volt is exploring new territory as GM’s first foray into the plug-in hybrid market. Solely on an electric charge, the Volt is capable of traveling about 35 miles. After that, the gas engine will power the vehicle for another 340 miles, giving you a very respectable range. But it’s that 35 miles where this car will really shine. If you have a short commute, you will have no problems saving hundreds of dollars in gas as you use a small amount of electricity per day.
The engine in the Volt is a 1.4L I-4 engine that pushes energy to a 16kWh lithium-ion battery under normal conditions. If you’re driving faster, the engine may directly power the wheels. (more…)
