DES MOINES, Iowa -- A metro boy who discovered a love of golf due to a heart condition now has a world class place to practice his putting ... in his own backyard.
His name is Jaxson. He suffers from a condition called hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. It keeps him from participating in contact sports but not golf.
This week the Make-A-Wish Foundation surprised Jaxson with a new addition to his backyard, a custom putting green. Jaxson and his friends and neighbors didn't waste any time christening the green.
The putting green wasn't the only surprise. Jaxson also got a Masters flag signed by Iowan Zach Johnson and a special video message from Johnson.
