Bryce Harper drove a golf ball 340 yards Happy Gilmore style

Launching spherical athletic equipment into the Earth's mesosphere is literally part of Bryce Harper's job description. You might think that's a bit hyperbolic, but this home run from the NLDS last season indicated that Harper doesn't see it that way.

And even though it's still technically the offseason, Harper is taking his job very seriously, even when he's on the links. On Saturday, the Nationals outfielder was playing a round of golf when he decided to put his weight behind a drive and tee-off Happy Gilmore style ... and DROVE IT 340 YARDS!
