Be agitated & inspired! Man with only one leg emerges top Golf Player (Photos)

Manuel de los Santos
Regardless of losing his leg in a fender bender, Manuel de los Santos has never lost his regular adjust
. Presently the former baseball cheerful is set to accomplish his fantasy of jump starting at the home of golf as one of Europe's top disabled players.According to Metro UK, Mr de los Santos had his left leg amputated aged 18 when he was knocked over by a car but he refuses to wear a prosthetic limb.
Instead he has relied on his balance and perfect swing to achieve a handicap of just three.


And the Dominican Republic-born golfer prefers to use crutches than ride a buggy between shots. I’m an athlete. I walk,’ he said.
He will join stars of the game including Padraig Harrington and Ernie Els during the tournament which also takes in two other Scottish courses, Carnoustie and Kingsbarns.
‘My dream has come true,’ he said. Mr de los Santos only took up golf after moving to France with his Spanish wife Elena following his accident in 2003.
One evening she brought home the film The Legend Of Bagger Vance – about a golfer overcoming adversity – and he noticed the golf swing was similar to the baseball swing.
He was instantly hooked. ‘I hit four balls and I immediately felt good. I felt well balanced. I said that’s what I can do! Let’s go!’ In 2005 he joined the French ‘Handigolf’ association and with a tough training schedule after six months won the Spanish Open.
‘I decided to devote myself 100 per cent to golf,’ he said. ‘I felt ready to consider a new life and start a new struggle to get results.’
The 25-year-old is playing alongside able-bodied amateurs and professionals at St Andrews in a four-day tournament starting tomorrow.
