Rochester residents look to score low to win big in Million $ Shoot Out

Posted: Updated:
ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) --  Rochesterfest is well underway for 2014 and Tuesday kicked off the competition for the quest of $1,000,000. 

The annual Million $ Shoot Out takes place at Hadley Creek Golf Learning Center in Rochester.

All age groups are eligible to compete. The investment is low coming in a $1 per ball which gives you one try to qualify for the putt off at the end of the week. If you have a Rochesterfest button, you get one free ball for every 10 that you purchase. There is no limit as to how many golf balls you can purchase for a chance at the money.

Elliot Mainz was out Tuesday vying for his spot in the shoot out. Although his first shot wasn't enough to get him into the final show down, he isn't ruling out buying another golf ball for another shot and he wouldn't be the only one doing that.

"Sometimes it could be your first shot, sometimes your 70th shot. We had a guy earlier who had 70 shots. It could be five shots all the way up to 120 if you wanted to," said Mainz.

The first person to get a hole-in-one with their one shot will win the $1,000,000 grand prize. If more than one person gets a hole-in-one, each would win $1,000,000.

Qualifying sessions are from June 24-26 from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. and June 27 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The championship shoot out will be June 27 at 5:30 p.m.

The money raised from this event will benefit the Rochester Senior Center and the events they put on for our senior citizens.
