+Mrapplesauceinpie we often ask the same questions about our tv programs...personally I don't watch much tv anymore..but when I do seldomly it's full of damn commercials and the programs have stupid buildup for an abysmal outcome.

+OrignalRecipe92 Mmm. I live in Australia and I don't bother watching TV. Filled with ads and there's barley anything worthwhile watching anyway.

The run-up was utterly pointless. He's stopped moving before he hit the ball. It looks like all the extra speed came simply from the way he started his swing with his hips and shoulders twisted further away from the green. I bet he could keep the distance advantage and be way more accurate, just by starting one step from the ball, with his weight on his back foot, and in the same twisted position

It doesn't matter if you're Usain Bolt. You need to plant your leading foot before you apply your downswing. However, you're still going to have that extra 2-5mph of forward momentum, which will give you that extra ball speed.

+mellowb1rd he got his speed when the power was transferred from his left planted foot up his body and into his swing. didn't you even fucking listen and watch?

finally, a 'sports report' that actually uses LOGIC.  of course pro golfers won't use it because they've established their swing over years of practice.  but, what about those who are still developing their swing?  good question...

Professional long drivers can hit the ball over 400 yards

It's not "nearly impossible" To hit it _.. I do a swing like this at least once a round and it almost always goes straighter than my normal drives.

Incredible hand eye co-ordination, I know he's hit a million balls but that is still remarkable..
Report spam or abuse
Doesn't this just beg the question, why not use it for distance driving tournaments?
Report spam or abuse
A professional golf driver hits the ball 50 yards further than the average pro golfer. They use a different swing, which usually involves a much further back swing. It's not nearly as consistent, so no way would a pro golfer use it. 
Report spam or abuse
Plus he is not a hockey player either
Report spam or abuse
It's about coordination so if you practice the same shot enough, of course you can make it work for you. Doing the happy Gilmore style also takes a lot of torsion pressure off the torso and you get to use more momentum from the 'run up'. Just think, if the pro golfer actually had a hockey face on his club
Report spam or abuse
Interesting you can tell that Harrington has thrown a Javelin. He has a fairly good run up, he has to be really coordinated to pull it off. Would be kind of fun at a golf event to pull it off. Who knows where the ball will end up. So pretty useless really.

Should've used the real Happy Gilmore, he's the best at this type of swing.

He did it at Valhalla 2014 PGA Championship !!!

To find out... we brought in the ONLY person willing to try a bizarre swing... Padrig Harrington

A scientific approach to the Happy Gilmore swing...cool!!!

Can a hockey player really use his swing to get big distance on a golf ball? To find out, here's a golf player!......... Hold on.
Report spam or abuse
A hockey player would never be able to even hit the ball dumbass

i acccidentally let go of my club and nearly hit someone
Report spam or abuse
his happy Gilmore swing resembled a baseball swing. i also noticed he rotated. his hips way more powerful than when standing still.

I've heard of people breaking their clubs from this

Happy Gilmore uses a hockey stick too which is way different from a club

'he hits the ball at 4mph, increasing his club speed from 107 to 114'...because 114-107 = 4....
Report spam or abuse
wtf is happy gilmore 
Report spam or abuse
This is great, I agree that the bigger chance of missing the ball and the bigger chance of making it go somewhere you don't want makes it not worth it, but I think he should do it once during a game, maybe not a masters, but maybe a charity game or something, the crowd will love it and it will make Golf look less boring, even if it's just for a few minutes. And yeah, so doing this if i ever go golfing, makes me wonder if the club will have more chance to bend though, cause if it increases the chance of the club bending dramatically, then the risk of it bending is worse then losing a amateur game..
Report spam or abuse
He has more momentum on the happy Gilmore swing
Report spam or abuse
that was an amazing swing 
Report spam or abuse
Yeah! Let's replay the same swing  TWENTY FRIGGING TIMES!!!! That's SO INTERESTING! Or maybe they only have 3 minutes of content, and don't wanna actually get more footage.
Report spam or abuse
i mean its not impossible, go to any driving range, running up and connecting isnt THAT hard
Report spam or abuse
It's really not that hard to hit a happy Gilmore if you already have a good swing, it just becomes a matter of accuracy but its not practical for actual rounds :D
Report spam or abuse
Guess I should start using a happy Gilmore shot on the course

I used to do the Happy Gilmore run-up back in the 1980s as a joke for my friends.  When I started doing it with my custom 10"-extra long driver it got really funny, and when I practiced it day in and day out, I got pretty good at it.  Never really added that much distance, though.  When the movie came out, I got about a hundred phone calls from all the guys who saw me do it.

Great share on this thanks, there is a how to break 80 guide on www.GolfJig.com with some good tips for anyone looking to improve their game

how many times are they gonna show him hitting the ball, poor editing

It amps us up for a fail when we question "this is a bit too dramatic for it to have been successful." Then... SURPRISE it was a success!

If it was that easy they should have had him do it multiple times and split up the air time between 3 shots

Me and friend traind this just for fun.. Wen I went to a golf training / playing in Italy the trainer dident know what to do with me (notorius slicer).. I said, "we do it like this at home". I hit drive after drive strait and long and he was speaceless.haahha. :-)
