Elliot Saltman hits an ace, wins his weight in ham

Fri, Oct 7

MADRID -- Scottish golfer Elliot Saltman made a hole-in-one during his second round at the Madrid Masters to earn a tasty prize -- his body weight in ham.

Saltman made the shot from the par-3 third at El Encin Golf Hotel. Heavily cured and salted ham is a Spanish delicacy.

Despite the feat, the No. 686-ranked player is well off the leaders' pace. His opening-day 75 left him 3 over and 11 shots behind overnight leader Ross McGowan of England.
