Bryce Harper says he hit a 340-yard drive Happy Gilmore style

Sunday February 8th, 2015

One thing the MLB offseason has been lacking: a reminder of Bryce Harper's raw power.

Fortunately, one thing the MLB offseason is usually pretty good at is allowing players to hit the links.

On Saturday, the Washington Nationals slugger did just that, unleashing this Happy Gilmore-style drive that he claims went 340 yards, and landed right in the fairway.

340 yards! Why not? What's up Happy Gilmore #leftygolf @aaronkurcz @chasenshreve61 @bryanharper45 @sportscenter

Incredible (assuming we believe the drive went 340 yards, and there's really no reason not to). This could bode well for Harper getting back into 20-home run territory and beyond in 2015.
