Golfer Sues Tournament for Allegedly Cheating Her Out of Prize Mercedes
Posted on September 14, 2023
Back in May at the Isleworth Golf & Country Club in Florida, Linda Chen hit a hole-in-one at a charity tournament to secure a brand new Mercedes E-Class. Happy to win a $90,000 car, she went to receive her prize but, alas, no dice. Event organizers claim Chen had more skill than she admitted, and as such, no Mercedes. Now, she’s taking the event organizers to court, looking for the car she claims is rightfully hers, or a cash payment of $90,000.
The story isn’t as straightforward as it may seem. Yes, Chen aced the 11th hole of the course, which should have secured her the aforementioned E-Class. The problem, as Fox News reports, is that she held status as a professional golfer between 1994 and 1996. She also allegedly signed an affidavit saying she had never operated at such a high level in the sport. Other pros participating in the tourney signed this document, which prevented them from getting the new Merc.
