Holy Cow! US$1,000,000 birdie...

BEN Crane of the United States had to wait until the final hole, where his birdie hit a jackpot of US1,000,000 in the CIMB Asia Pacific Classic at the Mines Golf and County Club.
He was tied on 17-under with Brian Davis of England, who had finished earlier, and the prospect of a playoff loomed large when his birdie attempt shot landed eight-feet from the pin at the 18th.
But Crane did not miss a beat and the sent in the ball with ease, and jumped with joy to celebrate the windfall at 18-under 266.
