About one hundred golfers attended the Lance McLean Memorial Golf Tournament at the Perry County Club in Hamilton.

The entry fee was $100 per golfer. There was also a silent auction.

The money raised will go directly to the family of Sgt. McLean, who was killed in the line of duty near Granbury last month.

McLean left behind a wife and two special needs children.

Friends describe McLean as a family man, a jokester and an avid golfer.

A fund for the family has been set up at the First National Bank in McLean's hometown of Hico.
