Padraig Harrington Does Happy Gilmore Impression At Long-Drive Contest (Video)


Take notes, Bubba Watson. This is how you lighten up.

Watson made news Tuesday at Valhalla — site of this weekend’s PGA Championship — when he refused to participate in a long-drive contest during a practice round. Instead of unloading on one drive at the par-5 10th hole, Watson pulled out his 3-iron and hit a quick tee shot in apparent protest.

Luckily for golf fans, Padraig Harrington didn’t take himself too seriously. The 2008 PGA Championship winner embraced the contest, as he channeled his inner-Happy Gilmore.

Amazingly, Harrington wasn’t hurt and looks to be good to go for Thursday’s opening round. What a miracle.

Somewhere, Bubba Watson isn’t smiling.
