Golfer wins $1,000,000 for hole in one

Ray Mills made $1 million Sunday for making a one-in-a-million golf shot.

A shocked and understandably elated Mills aced a 158-yard par 3 in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl's hole-in-one contest to win the prize. The Fiesta Bowl has staged the contest since 1984, but this was the first time anyone has nailed a hole-in-one.

Mills, a five-handicap golfer, qualified for the event by making his first career ace this past Wednesday.

"I've been golfing for more than 40 years," Mills said. "I hit my first hole-in-one on Wednesday and my second hole-in-one today. I was so nervous today. I was surprised I was even able to hit the ball. I guess my timing was pretty good, considering now I'm a millionaire."

Using a 7 iron, Mills bounced the ball on the front of the green before it rolled into the cup. Fiesta Bowl volunteers and staffers stormed the green to celebrate the hole-in-one.
