The seven-year-old Palm Beach County golfer, Tommy Morrissey, has captured the nation with his talent and passion for golf. He practiced his putting along side many of the PGA tour players on Tuesday at the Honda Classic, just days after his biggest baseball moment.

Tommy hit a home run in the opening game of his Little League season, and the inspiring video has gone viral.

“I told one of my teammates, if I hit a home run you pay me,” joked young Tommy with his dad by his side. “And so I hit a home run.”

But Tommy’s love for golf is still very obvious, and he’s more than in his elements at PGA National Resort, hoping to one day play as a professional.

“For some reason I had a dream of winning the Honda Classic last night,” says Morrissey with a big smile.

Tommy will be following along with Honda Classic winner Justin Thomas in tomorrow’s Pro-Am.
