VIDEO: 3-year-old, one-armed golfer Tommy Morissey meets Tiger Woods

No matter how you feel about Tiger Woods, this story isn't about him. It's about a little boy meeting a sporting hero.

We've told you before about Tommy Morissey, the New Jersey-born, 3-year-old golfer who is thriving at the game despite being born without a right arm under the elbow. His story has been captivating to everyone who's read or seen it. Morissey has made appearances at a number of TV shows and events, including the World ParaLong Drive competition in Nevada. That's all great, but is that really what a little boy who loves golf wants to do with his time? Not so sure.

On Tuesday, Morissey got back to playing some golf -- it just so happened he was practicing alongside Tiger Woods.

Fox Sports shot footage of their morning together, having a putting contest, hitting golf balls, just interacting. It's a moment of good we should really appreciate. It really is. You can see Tiger Woods the Father instead of Tiger Woods the Golfer, or Tiger Woods the Media Obfuscator, or Tiger Woods the Guarded.

But that's just a piece of intrigue. The real human interest story here is Tommy, who is finding a world welcoming of him as he is, with all the gifts and joy he brings to the table.
