WATCH: 12-Year-Old Golfer Makes Albatross

Ever had an albatross?

Some golfers never get one in their whole golfing life, whilst some get to make them little over a year after taking up the game.

And 12-year-old golfer Finlay Burke didn't have to wait long to get his first 'double-eagle' as they call it in the States.

Finlay made an albatross on the par-5 3rd hole at Pine Forest CC in the US.

He has, incredibly, been playing golf for just over a year according to his father, Chad.

And Chad is the person filming the albatross... his commentary/reaction is superb!

In fact, it may be better than the albatross itself!

Finlay strikes the ball and his Dad mutters to himself behind the camera, "Run baby run"

The ball is on a good line and it's chasing up towards the hole.

"Go in the hole. Go in the hole. GO in the hole!" he says.

"Did it go in?" he shouts to Finlay's playing partners.

"DID IT GO IN?!" he repeats.

"Finlay! Albatross!!

He then drives in his golf buggy and says:

"What I tell you baby? hahahahaha"

Watch the superb video below:

Congrats Finlay, that's some achievement!
