Brand new cars are usually handed out when a golfer makes a hole-in-one but Alexander Knappe received something a little different at the European Tour's Czech Masters.

Knappe aced the par-three seventh hole in Prague on Thursday as he signed off for a first-round 67 to be three shots off the pace.

And, instead of walking away with a shiny pair of wheels, the German received a new bed – valued at €40,000. At least the 29-year-old will get a good night sleep.
