I was never allowed to play with fireworks as a kid. My dad always worried about me blowing my fingers off.

I wasn't as smart as 7-year-old Henson Sharpe, who both ensured the safety of his fingers and showed off his wedge skills on Instagram by using a flaming golf ball to ignite a fire-pit full of fireworks.

One of the funniest parts is the other children in the video, standing at varying distances from the pit based on how courageous they're feeling.

The result? One of the hottest and most explosive golf shots of 2016. Pun definitely intended.
