On Saturday, June 17, local children had the chance to meet Atlanta Hawks forward Taurean Prince at the inaugural golf tournament held at Top Golf Atlanta, creating an unforgettable experience.

Emmy Award-winning reporter Kim Smith of 11Alive welcomed attendees to the Iron Masters Invitational Golf Tournament presented by UPS with a warm welcome and assisted with introducing MCMW Sports. The funds raised were donated to the Boys2Men Home & Sanctuary for the Youth and provided golf lessons prior to the tournament courtesy of Top Golf Atlanta and MCMW Sports. The event reached its goals of teaching young men the fundamentals of golf, creating a fun-filled environment for boys to compete, and rewarding the top golfers, including:

1st Place:  Kelvin Bridges

2nd Place: Thaj Grogans

3rd Place:  Jaylen Scott

All of the young men who participated in the tournament are now lifetime Top Golf members and are encouraged to participate in the 2018 Iron Masters Golf Tournament.

The attendees of the 2017 IMI Tournament were excited about the surprises, food prepared by Top Golf, and enjoyed competing together. Watch the video above to see what you missed.
