Tommy Morrissey is a 4 year old golfer from Florida, who doesn’t let anything get in his way, not even the fact that he only has one arm.
Tommy took the world by storm when his parents posted a video of him swinging a golf club with amazing precision and strength. He immediately became a worldwide sensation, making it on to shows like Ellen and The Today Show.
Tommy has since then met and played with many pro golfers, including Tiger Woods, Lee Westwood, Jordan Spieth and Rickie Fowler. Here you see Rickie getting smoked by this little boy, racing to the next hole on the course they were playing at together. How freakin’ cute is that.

It’s incredible to see. Young golfers taking the time to inspire the next generation. Although it really is Tommy doing most of the inspiring. He is truly amazing in every way. Not only will he have a future in golf, but he is showing kids around the world that having a disability does not mean that you are disabled. Your disability does not have to run your life and can quite possibly be the thing that lifts you up the highest!
As the PGA Show kicked off this week, guess who was front and center showing off some clubs? Tommy and another junior golfer, Jack Dirkin, were killing it on the range, striking each ball they hit perfectly.

These two definitley stole the show, and are clearly winning on every level. What were you doing in kindergarten? Not hitting golf balls in front of a huge crowd, that’s for sure.
Tommy is a true motivator. Get off your ass and do something.. Tommy is!
