Jordan Spieth Hits Happy Gilmore at Florida Pro Am (Video)
Critics do not regard Happy Gilmore as a masterpiece of American cinema. However, actual moviegoers love the movie, so over the years it has become a sports classic right up there with Caddy Shack, Major League, and Slap Shot. And pretty much anyone who’s ever picked up a golf club has tried to hit a Happy Gilmore-style running tee shot at one point or another—including people who get paid to play golf.
The latest pro to give the Happy Gilmore a try? None other than 2015 Masters and U.S. Open champion and world #1 Jordan Spieth. Just 22 years old now, Spieth was just two-and-a-half when Happy Gilmore came out. However, at the 70th annual Grapefruit Pro-Am in Florida on Sunday, Spieth kicked off his round with country music star Jake Owen by channeling his inner Adam Sandler.
Take a look:

As you can see, Spieth made some pretty good contact there, which is no small feat.
Unfortunately, the ball hooked quite a bit and wound up in the drink. So I guess that’s Happy Gilmore 1, Jordan Spieth 0.
