Several golf professionals in New Mexico got together for a fundraiser at Paa-Ko Ridge Golf Club on Monday.

The event raised money for longtime pro Bob Basham who was diagnosed with colon cancer.  The golf tournament raised over $20,000 to help Basham with medical expenses.

“I am very humbled by the whole experience and I would like to thank everyone who helped out,” said an emotional Basham.  “I know a lot of people here because I’ve been in golf for so long, but there’s a lot of people here I don’t know or someone I haven’t seen in 20 years came out.  That’s real rewarding.”
