Craig Noyes Will Receive His Car Feb. 28



Lynch Toyota of Auburn will be presenting Auburn University student Craig Noyes with a new car after he sank a 94-foot putt during a baseball game at Auburn on Feb. 11.

Lynch Toyota said it is thrilled to award Noyes, who is the first winner of the Lynch Toyota-sponsored putting event since 2014.

Patrons at the chock-full Neville Arena exploded in excitement when the ball made it through the hole at the opposite end of the court. Noyes told the Associated Press that he could not believe he had won a car.

“Once I hit it, I completely zoned out,” he said. “It wasn’t until the announcer put a hand on my shoulder and said I’d won a car that I believed it.”

Lynch Toyota will be giving Noyes his new car on Tuesday, Feb. 28, at 2 p.m.
