The fine-pointed concentration and preternatural feel it takes to complete the following action is Bruce Lee-like. It’s what legends are made of. And this kid is a rookie.

Ok, things here have been a bit dark lately, I’ll grant you that. But good omens are to be found on the internets as well. I bring to you now, the GREATEST MINI-GOLF PUTT IN THE HISTORY OF THE CIVILIZED WORLD. Prepare for pandemonium.
