On the 25th anniversary of "Happy Gilmore" one of the greatest golf movies EVER, Adam Sandler hit the links to recreate his old protagonist's iconic swing -- and it was epic!!
Adam dusted off his clubs, explained that this was the first time he's taken the old 3-step approach to hit a tee shot in a quarter of a century, and then launched a golf ball into outer space!!!
Shooter McGavin, this is for you," Adam said, before piping the shot. "I'm not lying to you. That is smashed. Smashed. That went pretty well. You're dead, Shooter!"
He shared the video clip on Twitter:
"Happy loves you all! Thanks for everything!," he captioned the post.
Social media loved it!
Ben Stiller wrote, "That’s a beautiful swing Mr. Gilmore. Congrats on your anniversary, and being such a loving grandson. So happy to be a small part of taking good care of her during her “golden years”. ????"
The PGA Tour got in on the fun: "Harness. Energy. Block. Bad. You inspired a generation, Happy."
"Gold jacket, Green jacket, who gives a ????!," wrote Buffalo Wild Wings.
Shooter McGavin himself even responded. Actor Christopher McDonald stays in character the whole time!
