A nearly 30-year-old man just checked into this video game article and he is grumpy, dismissive, overly dependent on Goldeneye references, and can sometimes be found using "the kids" to denote younger cultural subsets. He is here because he just saw this incredible Golden Tee hole-in-one and, while still very skeptical about its veracity, can't stop watching it anyway.

Exhibit A. The source was Golden Tee's official Twitter account, a beacon of truth in the swirling #FakeNews maelstrom.

Exhibit B. This...

-14 through 12? Folks, you just can't fake that kind of game. So watch it once, watch it twice. Watch it until blood starts running out of your eyes, because something tells us you'll never see a Golden Tee shot that good again.
