Reader John—who filmed the video—sends in this sic’d explanation:

I was out golfing with a few friends on Saturday. On the 18th green we decided we would all take our normal tee shots and then hit a Happy Gilmore shot. This made a ton of sense.Our logic: We can barely hit golf balls straight and/or far when we are sober and standing still. So after we consume a bunch of Bloody Mary’s and beers, we will have the coordination to run up to the ball and smack it 400 yards just like Happy does. Well, things didn’t turn out so well and I took this one off the ear.

And, the real-time version:

According to John, his ear’s fine. That’s good.
