Sandler played the titular character in the film, which was about a wannabe professional hockey player who discovers golf is his calling.

When his grandmother (played by late actress Frances Bay) learns she is about to lose her home, Happy joins a golf tournament to win the prize money to pay for her house.

He becomes the talk of the tournament, much to the dismay of pro-golfer Shooter McGavin (played by Christopher McDonald).

McDonald, who played the villain role so well in the film, also celebrated the anniversary by accepting Sandler’s challenge. 

“Nice drive, Gilmore! 25 years, huh? Let’s see if it’s Shooter’s tour,” the actor said. “Check it out. Oh, yeah. It’s all about the short game.”

He then putted a golf ball from inside his living room straight into a glass. 

“Money! Shooter’s still got it!” McDonald exclaimed, before getting further into character. “Why don’t you just meet me at the ninth green at nine, Gilmore … a little secret of the pros. Oh, and Gilmore, wear something nice.

“25th anniversary, baby. Shooter, out!”
