News: A guy in Arkansas played in a golf tournament that offered a 2022 Ford F-150 4x4 Supercrew as a prize for the first person to hit a hole-in-one of the course’s 10th hole. The only trouble was neither the tournament organizers or the Ford dealership got insurance to pay for the prize if someone actually won – which is standard procedure. And neither want to give the golfer the truck, which was sitting right by the hole when he sunk his ball.
