Adam Sandler‘s recent social media posts are giving fans heart-of-gold vibes as he first posted a tribute for his stunning wife, Jackie, and then rooted for a teen golfer who adopted the name, “Happy Gilmore,” because 1996!
First Up “Happy Gilmore” Roots For Happy Gilmore
A high school golfer, by the name of Landon Gilmore, adopted “Happy” as a nickname when he started playing in golf tournaments at about six years old, and it kinda stuck since then. By the time he was 13, he began to go by “Happy” all the time, and he loves the reaction he gets from people.
The Bloomington South golfer told “The Indianapolis Star”, “Sometimes, when I first introduce myself, they will look at me funny. But if my golf bag is there and has my name on it, that will kind of help a little bit. But it never fails. At some point they will ask me, ‘Is that your real name?’ or ‘How did you get that name?’ Something along those lines…”
Recently, the teenager took to social media to announce that he had committed to the Ball State University golf program, writing, “I am very excited to announce that I have committed to continue my academic and golf career at Ball State University,” and went on to thank his coaches.
The original “Happy Gilmore”, the star of the 1996 eponymous movie, Adam Sandler took it upon himself to give the kid a pat on his back, as he tweeted, “Go get ’em Happy. Pulling for you.”
Fans were quick to appreciate the “Murder Mystery” star, writing,
“Way to go Adam! Way to set an example and lead for the kids! With love.”
“You the man Adam! Golf’s greatest ambassador. A lifetime membership for you at the Derryfield CC!”
Others simply could not believe there was actually a golfer called Happy Gilmore, who also played hockey! Meanwhile, here’s Sandler’s post, rooting for his character’s namesake.
