Who Did It Better: Karl-Anthony Towns or Happy Gilmore?

Karl-Anthony Towns is one of the best athletes the state of Kentucky has ever seen, but can he hit a golf ball?

The 2016 NBA Rookie of the Year proved he’s more than a basketball player last summer when he won the homerun derby at Coach Cal’s celebrity softball game.  However, swinging a baseball bat is much different than swinging a golf club.

At Kyle Rudolph’s celebrity golf tournament, Towns tried to take a page from Happy Gilmore’s golfing handbook off the tee box.

Towns got it off the tee, but Happy went a little farther.

Unfortunately, we can’t see where Karl’s landed, but I think it’s safe to say it was not a hole-in-one.
