Ben Crane wins 1 million hotel points for ace at Wyndham Championship

It’s been an up and down kind of time for Ben Crane recently, but he’s ending things on a positive note.

Crane will miss out on the PGA Tour FedExCup Playoffs beginning next week. Currently tied for 38th at the Wyndham Championship, he is predicted to finish 147th in the regular season points race – only the top 125 golfers advance.

However, with Crane seemingly about to have some time on his hands, he can take his family away if he wants to.

In Sunday's final round of 3-under 67, Crane made a hole-in-one -- the second of the day -- at the 171-yard, par-3 16th.

"Be good," Crane said as he picked up his tee, "Come on!"

Seconds later, it dropped into the hole.

For his efforts, Crane picked up 1 million reward points for Wyndham properties -- plenty to take the family on a trip – with lots of lovely upgrades.

Check out Ben Crane’s hole-in-one in the video below.
