Walton Foundation holds adaptive golf tournament

In Augusta, the game of golf is a big deal.

On Monday, the Walton Foundation held their 12th annual "Adaptive Golf Challenge." Community golfers teamed up with golfers who have disabilities for the tournament. The event hopes to help players with brain and spinal cord injuries enjoy the game like they used to.

"They feel like they are playing golf like they used to. Beautiful thing. We do it with wounded warriors, we do it with people from the VA. We have some blind players out here, its wonderful to get them out," says Ron Carter who is one of the Foundations sponsors.

The money raised from the tournament goes to help disabled golfers buy specialized chairs that allow them to play. The money is also used to fund the Walton Foundation's monthly golf clinics.
