Jim Justice is just giving away money for Greenbrier Classic holes-in-one

Looking to make a quick buck? Then gas up your car and get to White Sulphur Springs, W. Va.

That's where the Greenbrier is and, this week, The Greenbrier Classic. Resort owner Jim Justice likes to flaunt his wealth a little bit during tournament week and has come up with a few different ways to let everyone know that he's got some big bucks. The annual tournament concert series is always good. So, too, is Justice's tradition of giving away money to the fans every time a player makes a hole-in-one on the par-3 18th at the tournament host Old White TPC.

The first time a player makes an ace there during the tournament, as George McNeill did in Round 1, Justice hands out crisp $100 bills to the fans seated at the hole. For the second aces, the fans there get $500, as they learned Thursday when Justin Thomas made his hole-in-one on the finishing hole. Those two aces set Justice back $192,400 -- $18,900 for the first and $173,500 for the second.

So what happens if someone makes a third ace there this week? Justice says he'll hand out $1,000 to each fan there. Wowsers.
