LEO-CEDARVILLE, Ind. (21Alive & NBC33) - Between 20 and 30 teams duked it out Friday afternoon at the 2014 Blue Ball Open at Cedar Creek Golf Club.

The fifth annual golf outing that raises money for cancer research, and prostate cancer awareness.

The event was started by Kent Hormann, who was diagnosed and beat prostate cancer two years ago.

Now a prostate cancer survivor, the event means more than ever to stress the importance of annual physicals and early detection.

"Year 5 has surpasses all expectations," Hormann says. "I think we'll set another record in Year 5--in funds raised--and I'll donate to local cancer service agencies to try and promote better awareness."

21Alive sports director Tommy Schoegler and Chief Meteorologist Curtis Smith were on a team on the links, while Hormann had a team of his own hitting the links.
