VIDEO: USWNT's Sydney Leroux attempts the Happy Gilmore golf shot, gets it all wrong | SIDELINE

Poor Sydney Leroux.

If you've ever played golf a day in your life, then chances are you've tried to do "the Happy Gilmore." You know, a tee shot where you start a couple yards behind the ball, take a two- or three-step run-up and smash the ball as hard as you can.

It rarely works for the average Joe as it did for Adam Sandler in the movie.

Which brings us back to Leroux. Below is a six-second, all-time great Vine video of the US women's national team star attempting the Happy Gilmore.

As you can see, it didn't go so well for Leroux, but at least she saw enough humor in the mishap to share it with the rest of us through her own Vine profile.

Sydney would also like for you to know that, after 29 takes, she finally nailed the Happy Gilmore.
