If ever there was a time to sink a 125-foot putt, this was it.

Paul Shadle, 49, of Rosemount, became the first golfer to ever win the $100,000 prize at the Venture Bank Minnesota Golf Show in its 28-year history.

The watching crowd cheered as his crazy-long putt nestled into the hole at the Minneapolis Convention Center.

The corporate pilot receives $25,000 cash from Nelson Marine and a South Bay pontoon boat valued at $75,000, organizers said in a press release.

KSTP notes he and three others sunk a 100-foot putt earlier in the three-day show, which qualified them for an attempt at the top prize.

You can watch him sink the putt in the videos below.
