MAHOPAC - A Somers teen hit the links today to raise money in the fight against multiple sclerosis.

When 15-year-old Jake Lustig heard that former professional golfer Greg Jacobson was raising money for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, he organized a golf marathon at the Mahopac Golf Club.

Jacobson, from Connecticut, had his career cut short when he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis back in 2011.
