Even the World's best golfers need to mess around once in a while. 

The Masters and US Open champion Jordan Spieth was taking part in a charity Pro-Am yesterday in Florida. The World number one decided to entertain the crowd with one of the most iconic swings in golf. 

The "Happy Gilmore" swing has been used by many golfers as a warm up technique at events, with Padraig Harrington among its users. At the Scottish Open two years ago, the European Tour got some of the players to try the swing. Shane Lowry, Phil Mickelson and Paul Casey were among the participants, but it was Harrington who won the contest.

 Despite all the professionals, trying their hand at the iconic swing, the original cannot be beaten.
