Georgia Golfer Gets 2nd Chance Hole in One, Scores $5,000,000


Winning is par for the course for a Stone Mountain, Georgia, man. Lee McDaniel, 67, won $5 million in the Georgia Lottery’s World Class Millions $5 Million Grand Prize Event.

I’m just excited, said McDaniel, who works at Mystery Valley Golf Club in Lithonia. Before I came, I got up and went over to the golf course, and one guy guaranteed me that I would win.

McDaniel was one of 72 contestants randomly selected in weekly second-chance drawings for the instant game World Class Millions.

Each weekly winner won $5,000 and a chance at the $5 million grand prize.

Contestants gathered at viewing parties at Georgia Lottery district offices in Atlanta, Augusta, Columbus, Dalton, Duluth, Macon and Savannah. Random drawings were held to award 25 $500 prizes and two tickets to an Atlanta Falcons game.

When McDaniel was selected in the $5 million drawing, he immediately jumped up in the Atlanta office and hugged his wife, Maude.

McDaniel and his wife will celebrate their 46th wedding anniversary Monday.

Our anniversary weekend is off to a great start, McDaniel exclaimed.

No kidding, dude.
