Alonzo Mourning's Charity Sued for Failure to Pay on Hole-in-One
Greenberg aced the 13th hole at Donald Trump's National Golf Club in Briarcliff Manor, N.Y., but the charity's insurer claimed that the shot was illegitimate because it traveled only 139 yards, not the required 150.
The suit, which names Mourning's charity for urban youth, organizers of the event, and Trump, was filed Thursday night in the New York Supreme Court.
"This situation should have been a happy and exciting event," Greenberg told the New York Post. "It is my intention to use the proceeds for charitable purposes, which makes my being forced into legal action all the more tragic. Sadly, I was left with no choice."
Greenberg is suing for $1 million plus any court costs that are accrued. Though Trump claims no wrongdoing -- as they were merely using his course -- he offered to play Greenberg for the million at ten-to-one odds. Greenberg would risk losing 100 grand, but if he won he would make off with a million. He denied Trump's offer.
