6-Year-Old, Born with One Arm, Beats 45 PGA Professionals in One-Arm Golf Challenge
The game was held to support Tommy Morrissey's foundation, UnLimbited.
Tommy Morrissey has bested 45 of 58 pro golfers in a closest-to-the-pin contest, but would you believe he's only six?
Morrissey was among the top performers at the competition, which took place Tuesday on the 18th hole of the Champion Course at the PGA National Resort & Spa.
The catch? All of the players could only use one arm, including Tommy, who was born without the lower portion of his right arm due to a blood clot he suffered in utero.
But he clearly has not let that stop him.
The 6-year-old, who’s been playing golf since he was 14-months-old, participated in the six-hour competition to support his foundation, UnLimbited.org, which focuses on providing medical equipment to children and military veterans who are missing limbs.
"He loved it. He’s a very competitive young boy," Joe Morrissey, Tommy’s dad, told InsideEdition.com. "Golf is his passion. When he was younger, if we turned golf off, he would start crying."
Through their organization, Tommy has traveled the world showing others that it’s OK to be different.
"The real purpose of what we are doing is to bring awareness to physical differences and to encourage military and children who are out of the game to get in the game,” Morrissey said.
