About Tommy

One Arm Golfer

You know him as the “One Arm Golfer”, the patient’s at The Paley Institute know him as their friend, ambassador and inspiration for The unLIMBited Foundation’s Financial Aid Fund known as The Tommy Fund.

Tommy Morrissey was born missing most of his right arm but that didn’t slow him down. By the age of three, Tommy was deemed a golf prodigy and appeared on The Ellen Degeneres Show as well as Fox Sports with Tiger Woods. Since that time, Tommy has appeared on many national and global television shows, most recently NBC’s Little Big Shots and HBO’s Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel.

He has clocked countless hours on golf courses around the world competing at his famous One Arm Challenge (closest to the pin) against PGA Pros, PGA Champions Tour Pros, and NCAA Division 1 Golfers. He has hosted his One Arm Challenge at many corporate and charity golf events and has won the hearts of millions around the world for his work on and off the golf course.

Tommy won the prestigious Peggy Kirk Bell Philanthropy Award in 2018. The unLIMBited Foundation was selected as a hi-light charity at the 2018 Cantor Fitzgerald 9-11 Memorial Celebrity Charity Day in Manhattan, and he has been invited to participate in many more prestigious charity events throughout the past few years.

Tommy spends his time advocating for limb saving and correction treatments for children and hopes that with the help and care of our donors and the world renowned surgeons at The Paley Orthopedic and Spine Institute, no child will have to lose their arms or legs as a result of a lack of awareness of alternative treatments or financial resources. You can follow Tommy on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
