Perfect Day! Australian Jason Day hits an ace to win a BMW M760i – and donates it to the Evans Scholars Foundation.

Australian Jason Day hit the headlines once again at the BMW Championship at Conway Farms. The former world number one, winner of the BMW Championship at the same venue two years ago, aced the 17th hole (par 3, 188 yards) on his second round to win the Hole-in-One Prize, a BMW M760i (fuel consumption combined: 12.8 l/100 km; CO2 emissions combined: 294 g/km).

Chicago. Australian Jason Day hit the headlines once again at the BMW Championship at Conway Farms. The former world number one, winner of the BMW Championship at the same venue two years ago, aced the 17th hole (par 3, 188 yards) on his second round to win the Hole-in-One Prize, a BMW M760i (fuel consumption combined: 12.8 l/100 km; CO2 emissions combined: 294 g/km).

The 29-year-old donated the twelve-cylinder car to the Evans Scholars Foundation. BMW also donated a further 100,000 US dollars to the foundation, as this was the first hole-in-one of the tournament.

“I’m going to donate that car to help another student, because I am in a fortunate position and very blessed to be able to try to bless someone elsewhere,” said Day, who is among the leading group at the midway point, thanks in part to his spectacular ace. “The first two days of the tournament were fantastic. I hope I can do that over the next two days as well.”

This is only the second time that the Hole-in-One Car has been won at the BMW Championship. In 2013, American Hunter Mahan was presented with the keys to a BMW i3 as a reward for his masterstroke – which, incidentally, also came at Conway Farms and on the same hole as gave Jason Day and the Evans Scholars Foundation so much cause for celebration today.

The foundation, which receives all the proceeds from the BMW Championship, funds college scholarships for caddies. Since 2007, when BMW became title partner of the tournament, more than 24 million US dollars have been raised.

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here: https://www.dat.de/co2/.
