Who hasn’t fantasized about driving the ball off the tee with the “Happy Gilmore” swing? His combination hockey/golf/run up swing is a golf classic much the same like Caddy Shack’s “Cinderella Story.” Could we really hit a drive like that and get more a few more precious yards? Some science geeks recruited paddy Harrington to give it a try. Our mates at Aussie Golfer dug it up. Check it out and then watch Bobby Jones and his hickory shafted driver. I wonder if the science guys could get Paddy to do a Happy+Bobby swing.
I’ll be at the LPGA’s Corning Classic in Corning New York this weekend.
