The 2016 Mini Golf Masters was recently held in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and in the clip above 2015 Mini Golf Masters champion Matt Male talks about what it takes to win on the professional mini golf circuit. Until stumbling across this video I had no idea that there was a pro tour for mini golf but I’m in no way shocked that it exists, what I am surprised by is just how competitive this sport is (according to Matt Male).
When I think of North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina the only pro sports that come to mind are the Myrtle Beach Pelicans, the Single-A affiliate of the Chicago Cubs. And I definitely think that Myrtle’s more synonymous with strip clubs and manicured golf courses than it is mini golf, but it’s nice to know that Myrtle’s home to more than meets the eye. Is the ‘Masters of Mini Golf‘ a spectator sport like Augusta? Hell no. Will that stop me from going next year and getting drunk off my ass while watching grown men putt for glory? No, no it won’t. What might stop me is the fact that Hooters Air doesn’t fly to Myrtle Beach anymore….#GloryDays.
