Ah, mini golf, one of our childhood favorite sports that everyone can enjoy. Some of us play it for fun and others play it on competitive level and take it to professional heights. Well, that’s what putt putt pro Rick Baird did as he accomplished one of the hardest feats in sports, nailing a perfect round of mini golf. A perfect round has only been recorded three times in the history of mini golf and this documentary by Grantland.com will make you love and appreciate mini golf a little more. I know what you’re thinking, “Oh! it’s just putt putt golf! Who friggin cares!”. Well I tell you what, you’ll be wowed after watching this short documentary and showing you the true pressure of one of sports trickiest skills. Putting. I found the feat quite amazing myself. Below is the video so please enjoy and thanks again to Grantland and thanks to CBS Sports as well!
This is such an awesome story no doubt and the one thing I love about mini golf is that it can be played anywhere at anytime and it’s a great way to get your golf fix if you can’t make the course that day. Mini golf works in different ways. Back in my old neighborhood, there were a few times where I went up to the local elementary school and putted in their parking lot and just aim for something. This was only just a few years ago when I did this and I would also would hit iron shots as well. Sometimes, the streets is your playground and I think mini golf is perfect for that environment and is quite a challenge if you’re rolling your putts on concrete. Big ups to you Rick! Amazing accomplishment!
