Paul O'Neill hit a hole-in-one at Michael Jordan's charity golf tournament

Paul O'Neill hit 281 home runs and accumulated a lifetime average of .288 over his 17-year career with the Reds and Yankees. He won five World Series, caught the last out of David Wells' perfect game, showed off his soccer skills in a baseball game and got to make an appearance on Seinfeld.

Now a broadcaster on YES, O'Neill is enjoying retirement, talking about baseball for a living and playing in charity golf tournaments with Michael Jordan. For more than a decade now, His Airness has hosted the Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational, featuring a number of celebrities and athletes from every nook and cranny of the sports world. 

Last year, O'Neill had the pleasure of participating and earned his keep by eagling the par-3 17th on Saturday.

The sad part? O'Neill said that the same shot on Thursday or Friday would have won $500,000. Womp, womp.
