Hole-in-one earns RB man a new Porsche
By Elizabeth Marie Himchak
Rancho Bernardan Brian McLean has a decision to make that most would envy.
He has to decide whether to accept a 2012 Porsche 911 Carerra convertible he won that is reportedly worth more than $100,000, sell his 1995 Porsche 911 convertible to pay the taxes on the new car, keep both vehicles or see if there is a cash equivalent he can accept.
McLean said he does not yet know what he will do since he has owned the 1995 convertible for almost five years and really enjoys it. If anyone can figure out the most financially sound decision to make, it would be McLean, since he is a financial planner.
As for how McLean ended up in such a tough spot, that is due to making his first hole-in-one at the most opportune time — during the Country Club of Rancho Bernardo’s Member Guest Invitational on June 23, the final day in the three-day tournament. It was hole number 12, with a par 3 played at 170 yards.
According to an email sent by the club to members after the tournament, “Brian’s shot landed on the right side of the green and began to roll towards the cup. After a few moments of uncertainty, it was confirmed.”
“My reaction was disbelief initially, but I saw it go in and just started screaming ‘It’s in the hole!’,” McLean said. “(I have) never won anything like this before.”
This was the second time McLean, who started golfing as a teenager, entered the tournament. His father, Don McLean, is a member of the club and Brian McLean went as his guest.
“There was no (tournament) cause,” he said. “Just fun.”
