With enough practice I'm sure some golfers may use this as a surprise shot to win some skins.

I agree w/Osiris. It shouldn't take 7-1/2 minutes to say "Yes, by 30 yards." However, it's an hour-long show. I guess they needed filler.

getting a hockey player is the right idea Rusty, & i disagree sharpest, hockey players are hitting pucks at high speed accurately all day long

I thought that was awesome.

Lol I never got the concept of putting; when I was a little kid my parents tried to set up a small mini golf thingie in the front yard for me.

The golf balls all ended up in other people's backyards. XD

Did this really need to be over seven minutes long to tell us that he got 30 extra yards? Especially since they tell you he got an extra 30 yards at 4:42?

I didn't even bother to watch the last 2 1/2 minutes, but I'm going to speculate that they gave us a long-winded explanation of why driving like this is impractical... and another 10 or 12 slow motion replays of ol' Paddy's swing.

iused to do happy gilmore shots for fun, and it got like 2x farther than my normal shots, but they wern't with drivers, and they still didn't even come close to 300+ yards :P

I think the video was quite lacking in replays of his swing. Could have used about 60 or so more.

Love it! An Irishman was "the only man willing" to do this! Not really surprising, "sure I'll give it a go," might as well be our national motto

Totaly smokes his drive? X-factor? That was was like a lame attempt at looking like a exreame sports event...
And funny enouth not even rock music, camera swings, cool guy poses and added effects could make that old golfer look cool.

Pretty much the same principle behind a football/soccer kick.
"They did this wrong. They should have gotten a hockey player to swing at it while running, not a pro golfer."
Dude, do you realize how hard it is to make an accurate swing, while running? Even for a pro-golfer most of their Happy Gilmore shots will be off line, so getting a hockey player to do this would be pretty much impossible.

2:57-3:29 What the drat was up with the multiple camera angles of the same swings.
