He always seems to have a smile even when not playing well.

That was a great clip - Harrington seems to get that part of what they need to do is entertain the fans.

I like it.  Cool that he can realize that he is there to entertain.

I remember seeing a video before where Padraig did the "Happy Gilmore" technique to prove if it actually did increase distance. Padraig was the only pro willing to do the test. The results were it did indeed increase his average driving distance by about 11 yards. He also admitted that he would never attempt this in a real tournament, since he wasn't really confident about keeping the drive in play.

That makes sense, you are adding another method to accelerate the clubhead, although consistency of strike comes into question.
