One-armed junior phenom Tommy Morrissey beats pros in One Arm Challenge


SHARE THIS STORY



Tommy Morrissey is a 6-year-old boy whose talents and charisma just have to be experienced. Morrissey was born with one fully formed arm and another where he was missing part of the arm under the elbow. That reality hasn't affected Morrissey developing a wonderful, competition-winning golf game that has attracted the attention of the likes of Tiger Woods and Bubba Watson.

Morrissey and his family have put his golf celebrity to good application, working to raise money at The Honda Classic for the UnLIMBited Foundation, which helps develop and provide childhood prostheses.



PGA Tour pros got involved in the fundraising by competing against Morrissey in what was dubbed the One Arm Challenge, where Morrissey did his thing, swinging with his left arm, while pros were asked to take on 55-yard shot the same way. Yeah, the pros are really good at this game, but they were no match for Morrissey in the One Arm Challenge. He beat them up to a final tally of 46-12.

Morrissey has awesome game, an infectious positivity and is great for our sport.
