Go to any driving range around the world, and at some point you'll see someone imitate the Happy Gilmore Swing, primarily because it's fun to do. 

This iconic shot will add length to your drives if you can do it properly, so it’s worth practicing a bit so you can impress your mates.

Follow these simple steps to get it right.

1. Don't take too long of a run-up

A couple of paces is enough. If you are too far behind, you'll be moving too fast when you get to the ball, and it will be hard to time the shot.
