KENT, Wash. – The U.S. Senior Open at Sahalee isn't the only big golf tournament happening in Western Washington this weekend.

The Western Amputee Golf Association is holding its regional championship at Riverbend Golf Course in Kent.

The three-day event brings over 60 amputees together. Some are seasoned golfers and others are new to the sport.

This is the tenth year for the event.

One of the participants, Jim Taylor, had both his arms amputated above the elbow, yet he has hit 18 hole-in-ones.
