The greens of Maxwell Municipal Golf course were filled very special golfers Sunday morning.

Over 30 teams of Special Olympic Athletes and their partners, tee-d off in preparation for their upcoming tournament.

Each team consisted of an athlete and their partner. The two took turns alternating swings while learning more about each other and the game.

Golf is a game of patience and practice, and for one young man, the sport has already taught him a big lesson.
