London, July 8: A 10-year-old schoolboy is tipped to become a future golf champion despite only having one hand.
Leo Millar has learnt to master the game using just one hand after a birth defect left him without fingers on his right hand, The Daily Mail reports.
Millar started playing the game seven weeks ago, but can already expertly chip and putt a golf ball.
But now the youngster is being tipped for golfing success after the silicone prosthetic was made for him by a leading British orthopaedic clinic.
The flexible glove attaches to his right wrist and has a handle on the end of it that grips any golf club, allowing Leo to swing with two hands for the first time.
With the new prosthetic glove, Miller is now able to hit the ball to a distance of over 200 yards. He has also been told that he has a textbook perfect golf swing.
According to The Daily Mail, Miller’s bespoke glove has been given the all clear by the the game’s governing body the Royal and Agent.
Leo, who lives in Poole, Dorset, was born with the hand deformity. He is, however, an expert skateboarder and is just two belts away from becoming a Karate black belt but is now focusing on golf. (ANI)
