PALM SPRINGS, CA - Golf is arguably the most difficult game in the world.
But imagine playing it with just one arm.
See, it's not as easy as it looks.
But for the golfers of the North American One Arm Golf Association like Alan Gentry from Louisville, Kentucky who lost his arm at 28 in a drilling accident, this is what they do.
"It's a reason to come up every day. It's something to shoot for. And golf was what really got me started to get in the right frame of mind to say that just because I have this disability, it's not going to stop me."
It hasn't stopped Cian Arthurs either. A 24 year Society of One Armed Golf member from Dublin, Ireland who lost his arm at the age of 2 after a lawn mower accident.
"There were tough times in life with taunting and stuff but when I found out about this one armed golf association and the American and the European guys as well it's changed my life for the better."
Not only has the game of golf and their respective associations changed lives, it's saved some too.
Dan Aldrich, NAOAGA team captain, said, "There are guys that say had I not found out about this organization I was trying to figure out how to kill myself because I lost my life I lost my livelihood I lost my competitiveness and so many things that identify people with their life is now gone. And it's difficult to figure out how to get through that."
But these golfers have. And forget the one arm for a second. These are some of the best players you'll ever see.
"If they had 2 arms they would be pro, I mean they're just that talented ... if they had two hands."
Unfortunately they don't. And that's okay, because they're better for it.
"if you put your mind to something and try hard enough you can achieve that. I personally believe you can and you will if you try hard enough," Arthurs said.
So no matter how you look at it, or how you look. What these golfers do is one of the hardest things in the world. And they sure put that it all into perspective.
