Who knew your golf skills can get you a Mercedes SLK


Kaustubh Shinde, They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store. Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!

Mercedes Benz SLK

Do you want a Mercedes SLK? Can you play Golf? If not, then rush to your nearest golf club and get some lesson dude!

Let me explain:

Ever heard of hole-in-one? In golf, a hole-in-one is when a player hits the ball directly from the first start into the cup with one shot. How is it related to Mercedes SLK? You ask…here’s how:

A 39-year-old businessman living in Gujarat played a rare 140-yard shot on the 11th hole and won the jackpot in the Mercedes Trophy Invitational Golf Tournament at the Kensville Golf and Country Club course recently. And the jackpot was *drumrolls* – A Mercedes Benz SLK!! That’s worth a moollah of 75 lakhs just for one shot! What a fantastic day Mr. Businessman!

Parthiv Mehta (the lucky businessman) was ecstatic on the occasion (who wouldn’t be) –

When such a prize is on offer, that thought always remains at the back of the mind. But when it finally happened, I just couldn’t believe it

All of this happening stuff does make you think “Yea, life is unfair”. Nonetheless, Congratulations Parthiv! IAB wishes you happy roof-down motoring for life.

Dad can I borrow your golf clubs 😉
