3-year-old golfer with one arm can hit ball more than 100 yards

By Joyce Lupiani. CREATED Sep 4, 2014

Three-year-old Tommy Morrisey of New Jersey was born with only one arm, but that hasn't stopped him from becoming one heck of a golfer.

Morrisey was born with one arm due to a blood clot, according to Fox 29 in Philly. The little boy refers to his short arm as "Nemo," after the fish in the Disney movie "Finding Nemo."

His family told Fox 29 that they noticed Tommy's special interest in golf as young as one. Both of Tommy's parents are avid golfers. Tommy would watch golf on television with his dad Joe. He would then mimic the golfers.

Fox News says that the golf prodigy can hit the ball more than 100 yards. Tommy doesn't just have a swing that a lot of grown men would envy, he also plays football and soccer.
