Golfer Wins His Weight in Ham

For hitting a hole-in-one on the third hole at a Spanish golf tournament, 235-pound Scottish golfer Elliot Saltman walked away with his body weight in ham:

Saltman made the shot from the par-3 third hole at El Encin Golf Hotel. Heavily cured and salted ham is a Spanish delicacy.

“I’ve been trying to lose weight, but now I’m thinking I should have just kept it,” Saltman said.

Ham was the prize offered for a hole-in-one at the third — prizes on other holes included a car and a watch.

Ah, pork. Now there’s an incentive (hint, hint, Alex)!
