If you are going to make a hole-in-one, do it when there’s brand new $150,000 performance automobile on the line. On Saturday during the third round of the European Tour’s Porsche European Open in Hamburg, Germany, countryman Marcel Siem did the unthinkable when he slam dunked his tee shot on the 170-yard par-3 17th at Green Eagle G.C.
The incredible ace was good enough to earn him a 550-horsepower Porsche Panamera Turbo Tourismo Sport. After the round, Seim wanted to make sure the fruits of his labor was rewarded with the most powerful in German engineering.

Wouldn’t you know it, but this isn’t the first set of wheels Siem has won during an event. During the 2014 Nedbank Golf Challenge, he holed out this insanely lucky eagle ironically on the 17th hole as well.
After three rounds, Siem is tied for 38th, nine off the pace by Englishman Jordan Smith who leads at -12.
