James Sprankle is the winner of the 2009 FMC Crash Course™ promotion!

FMC received so many exciting and unbelievable stories from across the country, but the bone-chilling discovery made by James Sprankle, Superintendent of the Loxahatchee Club in Jupiter Florida, took the grand prize of $5,000 for his course!

Here is James' story:

"In 1993, I was working in Cabo San Lucas as the Superintendent of the Cabo del Sol Resort.  During irrigation installation on the 6th green, we uncovered some bone and teeth fragments with the trencher.  Before we knew it, the Geological Society of Mexico had descended on the course and was conducting a full geologic dig of the site.  After days of digging, the geologists discovered several skeletons next to a campfire that had been well preserved about 15 feet underground.  We were later informed that Mayan Indians migrated to that very spot annually to conduct sacrifices.  
The Crash Course Promotion from FMC Professional Solutions.
Now for the creepy part, one week after completing the 6th hole and preparing for grassing, an unexpected rainstorm dropped 24 inches of rain in just 12 hours completely destroying the 6th and 7th hole.  The severe storm set the course construction back a month and caused a million dollars in change orders."
