Happy would be proud of these swings.
This week, TaylorMade paid tribute to the Adam Sandler comedy “Happy Gilmore” for its 25th anniversary, gathering together a group of golf pros to recreate the movie’s iconic winning swing.
The company assembled Tiger Woods, Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy, Collin Morikawa, Matthew Wolff and Tommy Fleetwood, who all attempted to put Happy’s hockey-inspired slapshot swing into action.
While none of them quite managed to get the swing to work, the golfers all agreed that Woods got the closest.
On Twitter, Sandler reacted to the tribute, sending his love to the golf pros in character as Happy.
I see a bunch of green jackets but no gold ones. Cant thank u enough fellas! Love, Happy https://t.co/TrGXqrNx7I

Along with recreating the swing, the players all wore hockey jerseys inspired by the Boston Bruins, just like Sandler did in the film.
