A camera crew for the European PGA Tour talked several pro golfers at the Scottish Open into trying out Adam Sandler's "Happy Gilmore" shot.

Padraig Harrington hit the longest Gilmore drive at 328 yards. Lefty Phil Mickelson, who won the Scottish Open, almost hit the cameraperson while hitting with a right-handed club. Also in the video are Paul Casey, Paul Lawrie, Shane Lowry and Alvaro Quiros.
