HARTFORD, Vermont --  What if Tiger Woods and Iggy Azalea had a kid? If it could be imagined, then 11-year old Matty Duplessis would be the result. The boy from Hartford, Vermont has taken his golf game to a whole new level, by incorporating his rap game.

The preteen's a YouTube star, known for his signature move. His 12-foot putt, that he always sinks. His company, 18 Unda Par has its own website and it's own clothing line. Matty says, "The videos is really a way for me to expose myself to the business. I want to be out there, so I just started to make these videos and put the videos on top of what I did every day."

Even if you don't like his music, his message is enough of a reason to listen to what the boy has to say. Matty says, "My goal is to shoot 18 under par, but I just figured out that to shoot 18 under par doesn't have to be just about golf. It could be about whatever you do, do it to the best of your ability.  Like you want to be a lawyer? Be the best you can be at it. Anything you do as a job or sports, be the best you can be at it."

Clearly, Matty's able to do anything he 'putts' his mind to.
