A Stanley Cup winner proves beer helmets are key to sinking golf putts

Pro hockey player T.J. Oshie found himself in a middling spot in a celebrity charity gold tournament this weekend. Behind in the rankings at American Century Championship, the Stanley Cup-winning Washington Capitals winger reached for an elite athlete’s secret weapon: the beer helmet.

Golf Digest has the full uh, golf analysis of how the long putt went down, but really, all you need to do is watch the video. Shiny red helmet equipped with two blue cans, Oshie sets up his feet, does the wiggly-butt stance (I know a lot about golf, friends), and sinks the ball right into the hole.

And thus, Oshie confirmed what all college-age mini golf enthusiasts know: beer will only help your short game. Unless you’re up against that goddamn windmill again.
