For more than a century, Pinehurst has welcomed even the youngest of golfers.
With the playing of the U.S. Kids Golf World Championships, we felt it would be a good time to update some of Pinehurst’s most storied vintage photographs. Great thanks to U.S. Kids Golf, photographerJohn Gessner, and most of all, to the incredible Tufts Archives.
As you can see, Tommy is without much of his right arm, but that hasn’t slowed him…AT ALL. He’s impressed golfers of all ages, including meeting and playing with many of the game’s greats, from Tiger Woods to Arnold Palmer, from Phil Mickelson to Gary Player, to Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler and Bubba Watson.
And Tommy did not disappoint. One of the fun things he and his father like to do is to mimic great players’ golf swings. In the video above, you’ll see Tommy’s takes on the swings of Spieth, Rory McIlroy, Fowler, and yes, even Mickelson’s. You don’t want to miss this, and you especially don’t want to miss his last impersonation.
In between those mighty cuts, you’ll see what golf truly is for Tommy and his dad – pure fun. And that’s the best golf tip of all.
