Apparently, it’s been 25 years since the release of Happy Gilmore, the crazy golf hockey movie starring Adam Sandler, Julia Bowen, Christopher McDonald and Carl Weathers.
Lee Trevino also made a cameo in it! Although he later said he wished he hadn’t.
Co-written by Sandler the movie was largely panned by critics but did well at the box office and remains a favourite “golf” movie by many.
Sandler took to Twitter today to share a video celebrating the anniversary of the film’s release by hitting one of Gilmore’s signature drives. A shot that has been replicated by golfers (including Jordan Spieth) all over the world.
Happy loves you all! Thanks for everything! pic.twitter.com/p1aY9JcFWh

And hilariously, Shooter McGavin (Christopher McDonald) responded with a video of his own. Brilliant.
