1/21/2006 - Golf Roger Clemens

PALM DESERT, Calif. -- Roger Clemens had a hole-in-one on
the 180-yard, par-3 second hole at the Classic Course at Northstar
on Saturday to help his team win the celebrity competition in the
Bob Hope Chrysler Classic.

The star pitcher teamed with actor Matthew McConaughey and
Mike Eruzione, captain of the 1980 gold medal-winning U.S. Olympic
hockey team. Jesper Parnevik, the 2000 Hope champion, was the tour
pro playing with them, and he shot a 10-under 62.

Competing with 12 other celebrity groups in the best-ball
format, Clemens' group finished a combined 65 under for four days,
including 18 under for the final round.

That was good for a one-stroke win over the group that included
Ahmad Rashad and Marshall Faulk.
