ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Every year Josh Broadaway, family, friends and of course donors, come to the Good Life City for the cross-handed classic golf tournament.

This time it was in the name of cystic fibrosis.

Out at Double Gate Country club, teams participated in a shotgun tournament for top notch prizes such as Kirby Smart autographed Georgia helmets, A tony Gonzalez signed jersey and many other coveted items.

Participants could win them on the course, or bid for them in the raffle and silent auction.

Broadaway is an Albany native who has been pro since 2000. He and his friends such as pro golfer Boo Weekly have share laughs on the course, all while keeping in mind why they are coming together.

"Cystic Fibrosis," reminded Broadaway. "One of our good friends Hollis Hood, his daughter Coleen Hood is  battling that. We just know they are in need and we're just trying to help them out."

For the 4th year, the golf tournament prefaced a concert. This year Cuthbert native Cole Taylor headlined.

"It's been awesome just to be out here supporting a great cause," said Taylor. "And tonight's going to be fun, playing some country music in the State Theater. It's good to be back in Southwest Georgia."
