Video: Padraig Harrington busts out the "Happy Gilmore" shot

From SPORTSbyBROOKS comes this clip of PGA pro Padraig Harrington trying the Happy Gilmore style tee shot. Your guess is as good as mine why they've set the video to "Viva Las Vegas" by Elvis.

Harrington doesn't dare use the shot in competition because it lessens his accuracy, but he did have this to say about it:
“The best player in the world always tends to be the longest hitter or close to it - he always has a length advantage. Because I plant a little bit like a javelin thrower in my Happy Gilmore, I get a much better stretch and then my left hip stops much quicker so I get that acceleration.”
