Madeline Kennedy was diagnosed with ALS — also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease — almost 30 months ago. The condition has robbed her of the ability to stand, but, with the assistance of a special cart, Kennedy can still play golf.
Inspired by Kennedy, the Worthington Country Club in Bonita Springs, Fla., held its first annual Worthington Fore ALS Golf Classic on Jan. 20, with some 250 members playing to raise money for ALS research.
WINK-TV was on site to promote the tournament and share Kennedy’s story. During a live shot, Kennedy got up to putt and demonstrate how she can still enjoy the game. And, what do you know, she drains a nearly 78-foot putt!
You never know what will happen on live TV, right?
