Now that the true freshmen have arrived on campus, LSU held a team outing in Baton Rouge Tuesday night.

The Tigers players and coaches went bowling, and then finished off the night with some mini golf where head coach Les Miles got to show off his putting stroke.

Lawrence Barreca of the Advocate captured this fantastic footage of Miles lining up what looks to be no more than a four-foot putt while “Ray of Light” by Madonna plays in the background. Despite the short distance, Miles takes his time lining up his shot after giving some words of wisdom to various onlookers, of course.

Miles shows good form as he confidently sinks the putt and then drops the putter to celebrate. He also got some encouragement from offensive coordinator Cam Cameron yelling “get in the hole!” in the background.

Here’s another angle of Miles’ putt.

Well done, coach.
