A Missouri fan stood at the free throw line Saturday. Not with a basketball in hand, but instead with a firm grip on a putter.
He faced the opposite basket, a sign for Burgers’ Smokehouse on the other free throw line 64 feet away. The fan had a shot to win a year’s worth of bacon, all he had to do was hit a golf ball through a mouse hole in the sign. He lined up for the shot, hit the ball with a perfect swing, watched it go right through the hole and pumped his fist as the fans that hadn’t left their seats for a halftime bathroom break went crazy.
