By John Evenson/CBS12

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla (CBS12) The LPGA will tee off their season in about a week and a half, which made Sunday’s turnout at PGA national even more impressive. Some of the best female golfers in the game teed off at the the 11th annual Prader-Willi Classic to help find a cure for Prader-Willi Syndrome.


PWS is a  rare genetic disorder that never allows those who suffer from it to feel full, no matter how much they eat. Proceeds from the golf event will benefit The Prader-Willi Research Fellowship at The Scripps Research Institute, Florida in honor of Josilyn Faith Levine and Harold Wilkinson IV, who both suffer from the disease.
