One-legged player amazes at Dunhill Links Championship

Monday October 5th, 2009

Simon Dyson was the winner Monday at the Dunhill Links Championship, but Manuel de los Santos may have made the biggest impression at the pro-am event, which is played on St. Andrews, Kingsbarns and Carnoustie. De los Santos, 25, is a former baseball player who lost a leg in a car accident and picked up golf in 2004, after moving from his native Dominican Republic to France. He plays to a 3-handicap without the aid of a prosthesis. John Hopkins profiled him on timesonline.co.uk, and you can see a YouTube video of his swing below.
