Alexander Levy became the brand new owner of a BMW 850i xDrive after he aced the 15th hole during round three of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship.

The Frenchman recorded the first hole in one of the European Tour season to win the coveted prize presented by BMW and Abu Dhabi Motors, holing out from 177 yards with a nine-iron.

Yelling after his shot to 'go', Levy soon saw his ball bounce and then disappear as it found the bottom of the cup, before jumping up and down in celebration.

"It's a really good feeling," Levy said of his shot afterwards.

"A perfect yardage for a 9-iron, wind from the left. Hit a good 9-iron a little bit thin. I was thinking it was short but bounced in the hole.

"It's always cool to make it. I make a few hole-in-one and I didn't win anything. and today I just win an amazing car. It's a really good feeling. I think I will fit really well in this car. I'm pretty happy.

"I'm really lucky. BMW do a lot of things for European Tour, so it's nice to say, and thank them because they do a lot of work for us, especially on a tough time like the last two years we have.

"So yeah, we have to thank BMW for what they did for us, and yeah, I'm really happy to have a new car at home. "


It marks the sixth hole in one on the 15th in the tournament's history. And while it was Levy who took home the prize, the car had almost belonged to Christiaan Bezuidenhout, whose attempt at a hole in one lipped out of the hole earlier in the day.
