A MARTÍNEZ, HOST:

Good morning. I'm A Martínez. A University of Auburn student is the owner of a brand new car after sinking a nearly 100-foot putt. During an Auburn basketball game against Georgia on Saturday, Conor Boyle sent a golf ball through a small hole in a sign on the other end of the court, 94 feet away.
