I'm not even going to lie to you guys, because, while I think I'm talented — and, of course, my mom tells me that I've got some unique skills — when seeing someone like Alec Barlow's Instagram account, it makes me wonder what in the hell anyone would see in me.

Look, I'm not asking for a pity party or for someone to encourage me with a, "No, Nick, you're good at things..." and then just leave that shit open-ended, I'm just being dead serious — and this Barlow dude's recent backflip golf trick shot video is the main reason why I'm pondering what it is I have to bring to the table.

Guys, what in the actual f-ck did my eyes just see?

Sure, there have been other golf trick shots out there, but Barlow's is the ultimate trick shot, with him taking things so next level that I don't even know how the hell the kid even thought up such a wild thing.

Clearly, this type of stuff isn't for the "untalented" types like myself, where, not only would I break my neck attempting to backflip, but I'd make a complete ass out of myself when trying to hit a golf ball, too — let alone one that's ricocheting between a couple bricks.

It's viral videos like this that make me love my job, because, while it can be a bit overwhelming trying to keep up with the "Internet sensations" out there, when you find a dude like this Barlow guy who can do something that 99.9 percent of the human population would never even attempt, it's pretty awesome.

Anyway, while I just sit back and try to find anything I'm talented at — maybe being a competitive power walker or something is my ultimate calling? — I'll just keep watching golf trick shot artists like Alec Barlow put me to shame with their acrobatics.
