Fail: A ‘hold-in-one’ can earn you a BMW in China’s LPGA event

Hold-in-one

The LPGA Tour is back in action this week after being off for the better part of September following the inaugural Evian Championship.

The ladies are on the other side of the world, in China this week for the Reignwood LPGA Classic in the capital of Beijing. It's the first time the LPGA is in Beijing, with a strong field assembled to fight over a $1.8 million purse in this 72-hole event.

Naturally, there are going to be some hiccups in a first-year event. One, as best exhibited in an example shared on Twitter by Christina Kim, is making sure Mandarin and English are on every piece of sponsor signage.

Apparently, a player can win an Audi this week if they make an ace at one of the par 3s. Unfortunately, the simple explanation was lost in translation from Mandarin to English.

Hold-in-one sounds more like a golf way of explaining spooning than an ace, and who doesn't want a cuddle buddy?

THAT WAS FUN, RIGHT?!
