UPDATE:  The story on the Sweet Onion Classic Hole-In-One has an update. 

After all the excitement, it turns out Hal Chesser will not win a Chevy Malibu after all.  Chesser said he hit from the "WhiteTees" and discovered when they were doing the certification that he should have hit from the "Blue Tees" which were a few yards back on the tee box. 

However, looking on the bright side, he said he's still happy because it's his first-ever "Hole-in-One" in his fifty years of playing golf!
