I won't lie. As little television as I actually watch, Sports Science is an absolutely awesome show. The guys basically do what we are all thinking.
In one of their latest episodes, the golfers got Padraig Harrington to come help out with one of the most interesting questions a hacker might have -- can the Happy Gilmore swing really add more yards?
The video is below, but it's pretty interesting. Harrington, who averages 107 MPH clubhead speed, hit 114 when taking the running start. Also, the ball went 30 yards further. Happy Gilmore time, anyone?
