A young man from Putnam County was remembered Sunday, as his family raised money for a good cause.
Tyler Kincaid died on June 23 after being hit by a train in Scott Depot.
He was just 20 years old.
Family and friends hit the links Sunday at Big Bend Golf Course in Tornado.
The golf tournament raised money for a newly-created Tyler Kincaid Memorial Scholarship, which will be awarded each year at Winfield High School.
Kincaid's family and friends plan to hold other fundraisers to benefit the scholarship fund in the future.
They hope the award will honor other student athletes like Tyler.
