Comfortable Gilmore nonetheless has it when Adam Sandler rip one on the 25th anniversary

Tuesday marked the 25th anniversary of the premiere of “Happy Gilmore”, and yet it’s been a quarter of a century since the film came out – who else is feeling old? – Adam Sandler presented the swing like yesterday.

On a golf course, in a warm place, Sandler paid homage to the character obsessed with becoming a professional hockey player, but instead realized that he had a knack for tees off.

“OK, it’s been 25 years since I did that,” Sandler tells the camera. “Lets see what happens.”

As he neared the tee, Sandler added, “I’m scared. Shooter McGavin, this is for you.”

The actor then took the legendary three steps before howling at the ball like many moons ago. The only thing missing was a Bruins jersey.

“And I’m not lying to you, that’s shattered. Shattered and that went pretty well. You’re dead, Shooter,” he said before ending the clip with a crazy laugh.

If you need a little refresher, shooter McGavin is the antagonist of hero Happy Gilmore, an ordinary man turned pro golfer to repay his grandmother’s taxes. McGavin despises Gilmore, his unorthodox style and lack of proper golf etiquette; Gilmore rumbles with Bob Barker during a celebrity pro-am.

Well, it seems like no love is lost between these two rivals when Shooter went to Twitter to respond.

“Nice ride, Gilmore. Twenty-five years, huh? Let’s see if it’s a shooter tour. Try it out,” says actor Christopher McDonald, who portrayed the professional golfer before talking more rubbish and dipping a short putt in a glass . “Money. Sagittarius, still have it.”

Then he adds a couple of famous lines from the movie: “Why don’t you just meet me at nine on the ninth green, Gilmore? Little secret from the pros. OK? And Gilmore, wear something nice.”

Hal L., a neat person who was played by Ben Stiller in Grandma’s nursing home and who secretly ran a quilt sweatshop, also congratulated Gilmore on the anniversary.

That’s a nice swing, Mr. Gilmore. Congratulations on your anniversary and for being such a loving grandson. So happy to be a small part of taking good care of her during her “golden years”. 😉
