(KRQE)-It was a day to remember for amateur golfer Laurent Hurtubise who was born with one arm.

He sunk a hole in one 151 yards out, on the fourth hole of the American Express Pro-Am in La Quinta, California. A native of Canada, Hurtubise played hockey and baseball growing up and turned to golf when he was 11-years-old.

He says he uses golf to inspire amputees or others without both arms and sees it as an opportunity to prove he can be as good as anyone else.
