As a country, Finland hasn't exactly produced a ton of great professional golfers, though the Finnish will be represented this week at the PGA Championship when Mikko Korhonen tees it up. Korhonen, who won the inaugural European Shot Clock Masters back in June, earned a special invitation to Bellerive, and, as far as we know, will be the first Finland-born player to play in a major championship since Mikko Ilonen tied for 54th at the 2015 PGA Championship at Whistling Straits.
What Finland does produce is great hockey players, the latest of the bunch being rising star Teuvo Teravainen, who just enjoyed a breakout season as a member of the Carolina Hurricanes, posting career highs in both goals (23) and assists (41). Perhaps inspired by Korhonen's presence at Bellerive this week, or maybe a decent golfer himself, Teravainen posted a video of him juggling a golf ball with his hockey stick and then draining a putt on Wednesday. Thanks to the Spittin' Chiclets guys, the mesmerizing clip has since gone viral. Check it out:
Teravainen's soft hands are very impressive, but how about that balcony? We are extremely jealous, Teuvo. That pretty much confirms he plays, right? You don't just have a artificial green with a cup on your balcony unless you play the game. Hockey fans and golf fans unite, we now have a new favorite player. Let's use this as an excuse to go back and watch his first-career hat trick from November, which by the way, happened in a span of seven minutes.
