Paul Lawrie does his best Happy Gilmore impression in Scotland


Paul Lawrie was clearly feeling the flow in his home country ahead of this week's Scottish Open.

The 1999 Open champion was practicing at host Castle Stuart Golf Links when he decided to tee off in tribute to Adam Sandler's character, Happy Gilmore.

Someone in the small gallery at the 13th hole said it was "better than normal" for Lawrie.

For what it's worth, Lawrie shot 3-under 69 on Thursday. He made par at 13.
