8-year-old from Rockcastle County wins at Augusta, wants Chicken Alfredo on Champions menu

Vernon, Ky., took home the grand prize at the National Drive, Chip, & Putt Championship last weekend by winning the boys age 7-9 division at the competition, played at Augusta National Golf Club. After his victory, Ford credited Macho Man Randy Savage with helping his mental game, and said his champions dinner will be at Olive Garden for the Chicken Alfredo.
