THIS is next level. Not only has Harrington donated his swing to ESPN’s Sport Science, he’s upped the ante by turning Sandler’s three-step run-up into a fully fledged skipdown launchpad. The proof is in the pudding, with the test revealing the Northern Irishman gains an extra 30 yards by employing the risky tee shot. The fact that Harrington’s actual swing looks almost identical to his normal swing even when he’s coming in off the long run proves there’s a reason that pros are pros, and that they could probably learn to use the Happy Gilmore successfully on tour if they practised it. PADRAIG HARRINGTON RATING: 10 WATCH HARRINGTON 'HAPPY GILMORE' IT UP IN THE NAME OF SCIENCE IN THIS VIDEO. WATCH PHIL'S 'HAPPY' ATTEMPT IN THIS VIDEO. WATCH THE WORLD NO.1 TEE OFF 'HAPPY' STYLE IN THIS VIDEO. NOT sure that Spieth went full gas on this effort at a charity event, but he earns extra points for launching straight into his swing and not taking a moment to line himself up like Sandler did. You can't tell us the pros don't enjoy having a bit of fun out there like the rest of us. 1 2 3 PHIL MICKELSON RATING: 5 JORDAN SPIETH RATING: 8 THIS is just all wrong from Mickelson. You can almost see the 400-yard sign in his eyes as he gets all out of shape trying to scratch every last millimetre of distance out of his drive at the 2013 Scottish Open pro-am. But look closely. Only left- handed Mickelson would attempt a Happy Gilmore with a right-handed club with the head turned upside down. The result? A dribble off his club’s toe that nearly kneecaps the cameraman.
