In case you missed it, the most inspiring story to come out of college football's opening weekend was sophomore long-snapper Jake Olson successfully executing a PAT attempt in USC's win over Western Michigan despite being blind.

Olson, who lost his sight at the age of 12 after being born with cancer of the retina, earned a walk-on spot on the team and made his debut on the final extra point try during Saturday's game.

As it turns out, Olson is a two-sport star, and he's better than the average golfer.

The 20-year-old joined the "Dan Patrick Show" on Tuesday morning to talk about how he plays the game without his eyesight and corrected the host when he suggested he shot in the 80s. More like 70s, Dan.
