This 6-year-old boy is not your average golfer. If his age doesn’t grab your attention, there are two things that will—his only hand and his one-handed swing, which never misses.

While still in the womb, doctors found that Tommy Morrissey would be born with just one arm due to certain blood complications.

“But I think because Joe and I decided that come hell or high water, this is our life, we’re gonna give this little guy everything he needs to succeed in this life,” Marcia Morrissey, Tommy’s mother, said in an interview with CBS News, about herself and her husband, Joe.

After he was born, Tommy was given all the special care in the world. His parents were quick to notice that when they switched channels from golf, Tommy would start to cry. And when he was just 14 months old, he picked up a golf club and started swinging it. Tommy was soon sleeping with golf clubs by his side.

His parents realized that their son had an aptitude for the sport and began arranging for him to pursue it. Soon, he began winning golf competitions, entering the spotlight. Tommy had never taken a formal golf lesson in his life!

Tommy has made a name for himself at the circuits thanks to an impressive record he has racked up. In fact, he is yet to be defeated in the children’s golf competitions that he has participated at. Furthermore, he is also the only child from the U.S. Kids Golf Organization to qualify for the world championships. Tommy also challenges adult players.

“He has been challenging adults to contest since he was five years old.

“The PGA Tour, BMW North America and Cobra Puma have been tremendous advocates of Tommy’s inspiring journey,” said proud father, Joe Morrissey.

is one-arm swing has won him many fans from the professional world, including golfer William John Horschel, who was surprised by how good he was.

“It’s really impressive to see him do what he does. He’s 6. He plays with one arm. And he doesn’t miss a shot. Seriously, he does not miss a shot. It’s just impressive to see him play golf and enjoy it so much,” Horschel said, reports USA Today.

Considering that Tommy Morrissey literally has decades of golf left in him, this is one prodigy who looks all set to scale the heights of golf and become one of its major figures.

And make Tiger Woods happy!

“We’re trying to create a child that will be successful in academics and be a positive part of society,” Joe said.

“Or anything he wants to do,” Marcia added. “It’s about him being happy and fulfilled, doing his part to contribute to society. And that’s it.”

“We don’t focus on golf. He plays five sports a week. And it’s all about growing. Every sport we play, it’s all about learning,” Joe further added.
