Paula Creamer almost hits coach after Happy Gilmore stunt goes wrong

Paula Creamer

Paula Creamer might be a major champion, a ten-time LPGA winner and one of the world’s top players but she does a hopeless Happy Gilmore impression – as her coach almost found out to his cost.

Creamer, 31, was larking around in practice ahead of this week’s ASI Ladies Scottish Open at Gullane when she decided to have a go at the ‘run-up’ swing perfectly by Adam Sandler’s character Happy in the 1995 film.

For Happy, that equated to a 400-yard drive. For Paula and her coach Kevin Craggs, it almost resulted in something far, far worse.

Teeing off at the downhill, par-4 sixth, Paula took a quite tentative-looking run-up only to – well, judge for yourself courtesy of this video posted by Craggs.

Perhaps just stick to your normal routine in future, Paula!
