Unless you've been tricked into the relentless and fruitless pursuit of perfection that is playing the sport, golf is dull. Sure, taking a few swings at the driving range can be pretty fun, but on TV it's mostly men who've waved 30 goodbye standing on cleanly-mowed fields in beige trousers looking at a flag. To spice things up, New Zealander Rhys Millen, son of Pikes Peak legend and IMSA racer Rod Millen, has taken his 500-horsepower Hyundai Veloster rallycross car and gone all Ken Block on us, acting as caddy for what can only be described as "A Man". He then helps A Man score a goal-in-one by parking in the right spot on the green (although surely it's all green?) and heading it in with his Veloster RC. Because it's a little short, the video makers have even thrown in a little "Making Of" at the end, just to allay any conspiracies of fakery. In that there definitely is fakery. Hopefully you enjoyed this video before reading this last bit, so I didn't just ruin it for you.
