Staff Last July golf pro Don R Zamora drove his ball from the tee straight into the hole and won a second drive this one in a 1991 Chevrolet Blazer The Blazer was his prize for scoring the holeinone at the Quail Run golf course during a tournament Crawford Chevrolet a Santa Fe car dealership offered the truck to anyone who accomplished such a feat on the ninth hole of the course Now Crawford wants the truck back or payment for it by a company that sold Crawford an Insurance policy covering the firm just in case someone did accomplish the unlikely shot The crux of the issue is this How do you count to nine Or 18 A court might have to decide that Crawford Chevrolet has filed a lawsuit in Santa Fe District Court against Zamora the Texas company that sells insuranceagainst holesinone Quail Run and its golf professional Zamora who was competing in the Santa Fe Beautiful benefit tournament at Quail Run on July 9 got his holeinone on the ninth hole However it was his second time around the ninehole course during the 18hole tournament The insurance company The National HoleInOne Asso ciation of Dallas says its policy is payable only on the first time around In other words on the ninth hole not the 18th Even though geographically speaking it is the same hole John Everhart president of National said the company had insured hole number nine and not hole number 18 We dont mind paying if a hole is insured A holeinone should be a great Everhart said But the 18th hole was not insured The ninth hole Zamora differs j There are only nine holes at Quail he said That makes the ninth hole hole number nine 1 just did what I was told to do 1 didnt lie I didnt deceive anyone I got a holeinone on the ninth hole Im Zamora golf pro at the Ladera Munici pal Golf Course in Albuquerque has refused to return the truck to Crawford but confirmed that he does not yet have the title A lawyer for Crawford Chevrolet said the lawsuit was filed to eliminate the inconsistency between the positions of Mr Zamora and of the National HoleinOne Association Either Mr Zamora scored a hole in one on hole number nine or he did Tom Velarde the golf pro at Quail Run said he believed Zamoras holeinone came on the 18th hole He said that when playing 18 holes of golf on a ninehole course the second time around that hole is scored as the 18th hole Tee for two anyone Allies end
