Bubba Watson goes ‘Happy Gilmore’ during first tee shot at Ryder Cup (Video)
The Ryder Cup is one of the most unique events in sports, and many people agree that it is the most exciting event in golf. In a sport that is typically dominated by individual play, the best golfers in the world get a chance to come together every other year and represent their countries in a team event. Playing in his first Ryder Cup on U.S. soil, Bubba Watson got swept up in the moment on Friday afternoon as he approached the first tee for his fourball match.
Golfers usually like total silence when they’re approaching a shot, but Bubba decided to go “Happy Gilmore” before his drive at the first tee. He let the crowd make as much noise as they wanted during his swing, and the ball ended up only a few steps off the fairway and in decent position. If someone tossed a “mashed potatoes!” in there the moment would have been picture perfect.
