Ace In The Backfield

University of Iowa quarterback Drew Tate lived a golfer's dream on Friday. Playing in the Aegon Advantage tournament at Finkbine Golf Course, Tate used a 6-iron to ace the 178-yard 13th hole. If it weren't for one more season of NCAA eligibility, Tate would have been entitled to claim $25,000 to use towards the purchase of a new vehicle. However, NCAA rules prohibit its athletes from receiving such "benefits".

The Iowa City Press-Citizen's Andy Hamilton summed it up well: "Drew Tate's golfing skills won him a new car Friday. His football talent took it away." Read Hamilton's story here.
