On Wednesday, the PGA of America, which keeps its offices at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens, announced that they have permanently cancelled the PGA Grand Slam of Golf effective immediately.

The four man, 36 hole exhibition began in 1979 and typically had that year's four major winners compete against each other in tropical environements.

These days, a Tour Pro hitting a hole in one isn't much to write home about. When the hole in one is made with $1 million on the line though, it might be worth a mention.

Loxahatchee River resident Rickie Fowler joined several other PGA Tour pros on Monday at Old Palm Golf Club in Palm Beach Gardens for the Els For Autism Foundation charity outing. The day featured a hole in one contest on Old Palm's famous par 3 19th hole. Anyone who made an ace on that hole would win $1 million for Ernie Els' charity. Fowler stepped up to the 111 yard hole and jarred one, causing the entire course to erupt. A video of the shot is below:


"Saw a bunch of good shots before me," Fowler told the Golf Channel after. "Having fun, nothing to lose. It's a small…

Why do we have a leap year every four years? A leap year is when an extra day is added to the end of February every four years. It all comes down to the solar system's discrepancy with the Gregorian calendar.
