On Sunday, the world’s top golfer (Jordan Spieth) imitated the world’s favorite fictional golfer (Happy Gilmore).
And it was awesome.
Spieth was participating in the 70th Grapefruit Pro-Am in Florida, though he wasn’t playing for the kill. Here’s how Jeff Babineau of Golfweek described the video above:
In a matter of seconds, Spieth showed how “serious” he would be taking this day. Hedgecock barely had introduced his name when Spieth opened with a running Happy Gilmore tee shot that found its way into a pond. Regardless, he smiled like a kid who'd just gotten a new bike. He would enjoy the day, and that made it all the more special.
It’s all in the hips.
