Fightmaster Cup features some of the best one-armed golfers in the world

Louisville's long-awaited chance to host the Ryder Cup won't arrive until next week.  But a Ryder Cup preview begins on Friday as one group of U.S. golfers takes on another from Europe.

The Fightmaster Cup is a tournament featuring some of the best one-armed golfers in the world.

It's named for well known golfer Don Fightmaster, who has worked for years to encourage people with disabilities to hit the links.

Monday, participants dropped by the Shawnee Golf Course to warm up, give tips to a group of special needs students, and to try out Bionic Gloves.  They are high-tech golf gloves that allow people to grip clubs more securely.

The Fightmaster Cup tournament will be Friday and Saturday at the Cardinal Club in Shelby County.
