Earlier in the week, we shared with you video of Paul Lawrie doing his best Happy Gilmore impression ahead of this week’s Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open. Turns out he wasn’t the only one getting in on the fun.

Lawrie was only one of several pros that were coaxed into swinging like the fictional Adam Sandler character at Castle Stuart’s 13th hole in preparation for the tournament.

Phil Mickelson, Padraig Harrington, Paul Casey, Thorbjorn Olesen, Alvaro Quiros, Shane Lowry and others tried to be like Happy. The European Tour captured the footage and posted it online, once again proving they’re the best tour when it comes to these kinds of viral videos.

Padraig Harrington managed to hit the ball over 328 yards with the Gilmore swing, which is just as likely to break your clubhead off as it is to produce good contact. (I know from personal experience.) Keeping that in mind, Mickelson turned over a right-handed club to keep his set safe from destruction.

In the end, Harrington was voted to swing the “happiest” by the European Tour, but, then again, he has some extensive, documented experience swinging that way. Just search him out on YouTube and see the myriad videos for yourself. But, in case you’re not so inclined, here’s a sampling.

    I’m not sure why but this web site is loading
    incredibly slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or
    is it a problem on my end? I’ll check back later and see if the
    problem still exists.
