Talk about a hole in one.
A quarter of a century since the release of ‘Happy Gilmore’, Adam Sandler showed he can still nail his iconic long drive – and lovable villain Shooter McGavin had something to say about it.
The 1996 film is remembered by many fans as arguably Sandler’s finest comedy, showcasing an angry and failed hockey player who tries his hand at golf.
In the movie, Gilmore’s greatest asset was his booming, run-up drive – impersonated by many an amateur golfer across the past 25 years.
Today, Sandler filmed himself giving the drive another crack. And though we don’t get to see its distance or direction, he was chuffed with the result.
“It’s been 25 years since I’ve done this… let’s see what happens. Shooter McGavin, this is for you,” he says before making sweet contact.
“And I’m not lying to you – that is smashed.
“You’re dead, Shooter.”
For his part, McGavin – or rather, actor Christopher McDonald – responded in kind with his own video, nailing a putt and delighting fans with some famous quotes from the film.
“Money! Shooter’s still got it,” he exclaimed.
