Tony Delk Charity Golf Tournament

A handful of professional athletes turned out for the 3rd annual Tony Delk Charity Golf Tournament Monday at Colonial Country Club.

Delk has raised about $400,000 in the last three years for Sickle Cell Anemia patients. Delk, who is from Brownsville, Tennessee has two daughters who suffer from the disease.  The Big Nasty, Corliss Williamson, from Russellville, Arkansas was on hand to help his old friend out. After 12 years in the NBA, both are free agents this year and will probably retire.

"I'm enjoying doing nothing. I just want to focus on this foundation and get it off the ground. I've been wanting to do that for awhile now. I'm 95 percent sure that I'm done but maybe I'll get that itch to play again,"  Delk said.

Williamson is giving it a little more consideration.

"I still feel like I have a few years left in me, but I've enjoyed spending time with my family this summer and as I get older it gets harder and harder to leave to go on trips. So I'll make a decision in the next few weeks."
