Get nervous, Shooter McGavin … HAPPY GILMORE‘S STILL GOT IT!!!
On the 25th anniversary of “Happy Gilmore” — arguably the greatest golf movie EVER — Sandler hit the links to recreate his old protagonist’s iconic swing — and it was epic!!
Adam dusted off his clubs … explained this was the first time he’s taken the old 3-step approach to hitting a tee shot in a quarter of a century — and then he launched a golf ball into outer space!!!
The best part? ADAM TALKED SMACK TO SHOOTER WHILE DOING IT!!!
“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!”
Of course, back on Feb. 16, 1996 … Happy came back from down 4 strokes to beat Shooter to win the gold jacket — and the movie has been legendary in the sports world ever since.
In fact, if you go to a local Top Golf to hit shots, the rules there even state there’s no Happy Gilmore swings allowed!!
“Happy loves you all!” Adam captioned his video on Tuesday. “Thanks for everything!”
Now if we could just find a way to get Bob Barker back on the course with Sandler … we’d really bring back memories!!
