Newly appointed FRA golf coach, Jon Wilson, came within inches of winning a cool million dollars but he still walked away with a nice one thousand dollars. Wilson took part in the 2014 FRA Alumni Golf Classic on Friday at Legends Golf Club, and he qualified during the day for a chance at winning one million dollars. Wilson, along with 5 other qualifiers got one shot at a hole-in-one from 170 yards out. Wilson was the only one who made the sponsors nervous coming within 14 inches of an ace. By coming the closest, Wilson still won $1000.00 cash on the spot presented by FRA’s Leigh Brown Wylie.
Jon Wilson will replace FRA golf coach Glenn Tackett who is stepping down after 13 years at the helm. Wilson most recently was FRA’s Middle School golf coach and he teaches US. History and Economics and Government as well.
