Soccer star Sydney Leroux's Vine bio says she "kicks balls for a living." Today we can undoubtedly say, don't quit your day job, Sydney. 

The 23-year-old striker who won a gold medal with the U.S. at the 2012 London Olympics tried her hand at golf recently, and the result was this Vine, aptly entitled, "How not to Happy Gilmore."

Go ahead, give it a watch ... or 10. There's no shame in laughing at an elite athlete struggling with the dreaded foot shuffle. To her credit, it looks like she took it in stride, appearing to laugh at herself just as hard as whoever was taking the video. Or maybe she was just toughening up for next year's hockey tryouts. Only 364 more days.
