Man wins Par 3 championship and $20,000 prize while on his honeymoon

March 30, 2015

Apparently, Thomas Curtis is a good golfer and an even better negotiator. The 29-year-old English pro somehow convinced his wife to let him play in a two-day golf tournament while on their honeymoon in Bermuda. Smart move.

Now the couple might end up taking a second trip after Curtis claimed the Grey Goose World Par 3 Championship. The $20,000 first-place check for two days of "work" in paradise seems well worth it now.

Curtis finished first in the 110-person field of men and women pros and amateurs with scores of 56-54. Remember, it's a par-3 course so par was 54. Recent PGA Tour winner Nick Taylor is a former winner of the event.

"My wife has very kindly let me play golf on our honeymoon, so I definitely need to thank her, although we'll probably have to go on a second honeymoon now," Curtis said.

Oh, you'll "have to go on a second honeymoon now"? Sounds rough.
