What would you do if you earned the change to play Augusta, but didn't have the funds to do so?

Farmington, MN native and 3-time Minnesota Golf Association Play of the Year Sammy Schmitz earned the trip by winning the U.S. Mid-Amateur with this ridiculous ace (hole-in-one) on a 290-yard par-4.

NOTE: it's an amateur tournament, so the video is pretty amateur, too.

But that's when the dream got expensive.

There are fees and expenses that go along with playing golf for a living. These can usually be offset with sponsorships and/or being stinking rich (*cough* Tiger *cough*). Being an amateur doesn't give you those privileges, however.

Sammy and his wife set up a GoFundMe account to try to raise a little money for the trip. Fans responded by donating over $25,000 in three days!

Good luck, Sammy!
