Hahn admitted that at that time he had not yet set up a direct deposit. However, he had a reason for it. Recalling reading the book The Secret in college, he said, “For me, one of the things I got out of it was imagining a check, a million dollar check, the comes to my home. That was all I wanted from my life … I just wanted the actual physical control. “

“So I’m winning the Northern Trust. Got the physical check for 1.2 million, ”added Hahn. Obviously he was thrilled. He took pictures with it and celebrated his victory. When it came to depositing the check, however, all he said was, “Oh, I put it in my glove box. No big deal.”

Meanwhile, life went on normally and the money didn’t actually arrive in his account. Two weeks passed and his wife asked him, “How long does it take to cash a million check? You went to the bank like two weeks ago and it still hasn’t reached our account. “

Hahn suddenly remembered. He said, “I left a million check in my car glove box for two weeks and completely forgot about it.”

When the American golfer finally got to his bank and presented his check, the lady at the front desk laughed. Not every day someone goes to the bank to cash more than a million dollars. In addition to the madness, Hahn left his ID in his car. When the helpers started selling him services, he said in frustration, “Hey guys, I just want to cash the check.”

“I’ve been going to direct deposit since then because it’s a lot easier,” he said. “But losing a check in the glove compartment doesn’t sit well.”
