Phil Mickelson, Paul Lawrie Try 'Happy Gilmore' Golf Shot At 2013 Scottish Open (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

It's been more than sixteen years since Happy Gilmore first debuted his infamous swing on the fairway. Now we finally get to watch the pros try it on for size.

A European Tour camera crew recently filmed Phil Mickelson, Paul Lawrie and several others at the site of the 2013 Scottish Open as they tried to replicate Adam Sandler's shot from the 1996 comedy. Padraig Harrington was pretty good.

Luckily no alligators were around to spoil all the fun.
