Hole-in-One

In May 1998 at Beaver Brook
Golf Course in Haydenville, Mass., Todd Obuchowski was
credited with a hole-in-one on a par 3 hole after his tee shot went
over the green and onto a highway, hit a passing Toyota driven by
Nancy Bachand, ricocheted back to the green, and rolled into the
cup. At least eight golfers witnessed the shot. [Newsday, 5-24-98]

Very clever of him to plan the shot that way...

Absolutely, because if you hit a car and 8 other people see it was your ball, there's no getting out of fixing the dent/windshield.

It's better to play at night, after the course closes. Lower green fees, fewer witnesses.
