JOPLIN, Mo. — Area golfers took a swing to support a worthy cause today (Monday).

It was the first-ever Community Support Services Golf Scramble at the Twin Hill Golf and Country Club in Joplin.

Multiple prizes were handed out for the top three teams, as well as the longest drive and closest to the pin.
