Dropping golf balls for great cause

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - If you spent anytime outside Thursday you know the weather was just picture perfect.

But it was raining in at least one spot, well...raining golf balls, actually.

Our Sky News Now helicopter released at least two-thousand balls onto the course at the Hawaii Prince golf club in Ewa Beach.

The big drop kicked off the American Diabetes Association's annual golf tournament.

The contest was simple, buy a golf ball for ten bucks, and if it lands closest to the pin you could win some incredible prizes all for a great cause.
