3-Year-Old Golfer With One Arm Gets Surprise Visit From a Golf Legend


We can’t get enough of this kid.

Back in August, the world heard about Tommy Morrissey, a 3-year-old golfer with one arm. The boy from Linwood, New Jersey, made headlines for his impressive ability to drive the ball 100 yards. Now, little “Nemo,” as he’s nicknamed, just got a surprise visit from a golf legend — Tiger Woods.

Tommy was attending the Hero World Challenge in Orlando when Woods, the tournament’s host, stopped by to hit some balls with him, Yahoo Sports reported. The two had a little putting competition and spent some time together on the green.

We wake up each day and hope that he doesn’t see a limitation,” Joe Morrissey, Tommy’s father, says in the video below, “because we don’t.”

Check out the adorable interaction in the video below:
