Here's another hole in one made over the weekend that didn't happen in the British Open. Joe Sakic, former Colorado Avalanche star, made an ace on the 17th hole at the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship which happened to win him $1 million from the tournament sponsor.

"That's a shot you never imagine hitting," Sakic said, per USA Today. "I've never even been close before. If you're going to do it, why not here?"

According to reports, half of the money is going to Sakic and the other to Lance Armstrong's Livestrong Foundation.
