One-Armed Man Makes Second Hole-In-One
by Associated Press

CLOVIS, N.M. (AP) ? A 74-year-old one-armed man made his second hole-in-one at a New Mexico golf course last week.

Art Baird used a 5-iron to ace the par-3, 135-yard No. 7 hole last Thursday at the Municipal Golf Course in Clovis. Baird's first hole-in-one was in Apache Junction, Ariz., in 1991.

Baird lost his right arm in an accident in 1952, then started swinging a golf club to strengthen his left wrist.

"Then, one of my friends decided that as long as I could swing a club, I might as well go to a driving range," said Baird, who is from Clovis.

He began playing golf in 1966, and learned how to bowl, play tennis and pool with one arm. He also is an avid fisherman.

"I never played with two arms, and I've never used my prosthesis when I play golf," Baird said. "I've had to make compensations because of the one arm, but there are so few things I can't do, I can't even think of anything."
