VIDEO: Golfer does the Happy Gilmore swing on ice skates during Blizzard 2016


If you're a golfer among the 100 million people affected by Blizzard 2016, the next couple of days -- really, weeks, while the snow melts -- are going to suck. No golf at all, right? Maybe for you, but not for this golfer.

Canadian PGA instructor Marc Lapointe decided to dust off the ice skates and head out onto the ice-covered sidewalk to try out the Happy Gilmore swing. He pulled it off perfectly. His buddy, Andrew Kiger, shared it on Twitter.

The best part of this is that it brings the Happy Gilmore story full circle. After all, Sandler's Happy was, at heart, an ice hockey player. Gilmore would be happy to have the chance to pull of this shot.
