Every golfer will have the opportunity to be one of four finalists that will have a shot at the $1 million prize. The two male golfers, and the two female golfers who are closer to the pin on the designated $1 million hole will comprise the four finalists that will have a chance to tee off for the $1 million hole-in-one.
"This is an unprecedented event," Nate Emmons, interim director of the Greater Oswego-Fulton Chamber of Commerce, said. "We have offered the opportunity to win some amazing prizes in the past, but certainly nothing of this magnitude. This chance to win $1 million makes the Chamber golf tournament the most exciting golf event in Oswego County, if not all of Central New York."
John Zanewych of Big John Sales and Ted Lowe, regional manager for NTI Boiler are looking forward to the possibility of congratulating a $1 million winner.
"We are happy to be sponsoring the $1 million Hole-In-One Contest," Zanewych said. "The Greater Oswego-Fulton Chamber of Commerce is an excellent organization and we are proud to be able to support the chamber through this sponsorship. This really is a chance of a lifetime. Its amazing to think that someone may walk away from the Greater Oswego-Fulton Chamber golf tournament a millionaire"

Emmons added that the excitement surrounding the event has led to another unprecedented decision. "
