Greenville, S.C. – Talk about starting off 2018 with a bang! Clemson University’s first halftime basketball promotion on the new year was a huge success.
Christopher Carns won $10,000 on January 6, 2018, courtesy of Roto-Rooter, and paid for by Odds On Promotions, after he drained a 94-foot putt during halftime at a Clemson basketball game at Littlejohn Coliseum.
Carns, who was randomly selected to participate in the fan-friendly on-court halftime basketball contest, had only ever played golf a few times. After he hit the ball, he expected the shot to veer off at any moment, but as it turned out, the ball rolled right through the template placed at the other end of the court, resulting in a giant roar of approval from the crowd and a big hug from the school’s mascot.
The halftime promotional putt also paid off for Roto-Rooter. The winning giant-prize “drain the putt” story was picked up by ESPN, every major golf publication, CBS Sports and USA Today.
Check out Carns’ amazing putt for yourself.
