Charles L. may not be one for victory dances, but he was definitely excited when he won a trip to play mini-golf with Rob Gronkowski. He had entered the contest somewhat on a whim, after putting together a lineup and thinking “what the heck!” Coming all the way from Minnesota to meet Gronk was a trek, but now Charles can say he beat the king of the spike at mini-golf.
