The first round of the Walmart Northwest Arkansas Championship Presented P&G wraps up. Fans braved the heat to watch the lady pros in action. But the excitement for some came when the day was over.  As the golfers walked off the 18th hole of the first round fans waited for their autographs.

But Sonny Grieshaber was the only one getting his prosthetic leg signed by former Razorback Stacy Lewis.  

 “I have three spares and this one here is going to mean a whole lot because I just got this leg less than a year ago.”

He says having the autograph of the number two ranked women golfer in the World will benefit children and families in need.

“I’m going to put it up for auction. And these legs are valued at $18,000 but, they'll only get a replica, they'r e not going to get the original, I'm keeping that one because I have to wear it for a little while longer," Says Grieshaber.

 He says the Highland Elks Lodge holds a fundraiser every year for their Christmas Basket Program.

“It's going to a very good cause. Because Highland Elks takes care of a lot of children come Christmas time," explains Grieshaber.

 But he wasn't the only one who got these pros' autographs.

 “I got one from Paula Creamer, and whole bunch of other people," says Emma Nevin.

 “I got Stacy Lewis, Michelle Wie, Natalie,” adds Olivia Nevin.

 And some aspiring golfers say they were ecstatic to get this close to their idols.

“You just get to like talk to them like they're normal people, but they go out and do this for a living."
