Auburn's most famous golf alumni, 2013 PGA Championship winner Jason Dufner, would be rather proud of what took place at halftime of the Tigers' Saturday home game against Mississippi State.
You know what would make your first college basketball game a lot better? Getting picked out of the crowd to attempt a putt the length of the floor for a new car and making it despite the fact that you've never really golfed in your life.
Yes, that happened this weekend at an Auburn home game, when Patrick Burch got pulled out of the crowd to attempt the full court putt despite not being a golfer at all.
Burch was attending his first ever college game when Auburn hosted Mississippi State, and was asked to sink a full-court putt in order to win a free car. All the fan had to do was hit a golf ball 95 feet on a basketball court through a three inch opening and the car would be his. Patrick hit the putt with a pretty solid amount of speed, and the rlled, and rolled and then disappeared through the tiny cardboard cutout hole, winning himself $15,000 towards a new car from Lynch Toyota.
