Best Happy Gilmore Costume Guide
Happy Gilmore is the main character in the movie of the same name, starring Adam Sandler in the lead role. Released in 1996, the sports-comedy film was a huge hit with audiences and helped propel Sandler to superstardom as the failed hockey player who made it big on the golf course.
Happy Gilmore is golf’s anti-hero. He doesn’t adhere to the sport’s strict dress codes, often lets his temper run out of control on the golf course and doesn’t even use traditional golfing techniques. While he is certainly unorthodox, he has a big heart – the only reason he joins the Pro Golf Tour is to win enough money to save his grandmother’s house from being repossessed.
Becoming golf’s most irreverent hero is easy – you’ll just need a Bruins Hat, Golf Club, Blue Jeans, NHL Jersey and New Balance Sneakers.

About Happy Gilmore
Happy Gilmore is introduced to the world as a man who wants nothing more than to be a professional hockey player but lacks the skills to do so, aside from his powerful slapshot. Down on his luck after another failed tryout, Happy’s girlfriend leaves him, and his grandmother’s house is about to be repossessed because she hasn’t paid her taxes. While the repo men are taking his grandfather’s golf clubs, he discovers he can convert his hockey slapshot style to driving a golf ball with significant effect, leading him to try and hustle people out of money at the local driving range.
After meeting Chubbs Peterson and being encouraged to try his hand at golf professionally, Happy rises through the ranks of the Pro Golf Tour, delighting fans and generating huge tv rating with his bad temper, unorthodox style, and general antics on the golf course.
With Happy almost in reach of enough prize-money to buy back his grandmother’s house, only one man stands in his way – professional golfer Shooter McGavin, who quickly becomes Happy’s worst enemy in his pursuit of the winnings he needs.
