A Real Person Named Happy Gilmore Just Qualified To Play D1 Golf

Jun 24, 2023

What an extraordinary name and an incredible tale. It’s quite remarkable to receive a good luck quote from Adam Sandler as well. I must admit, I was slightly disheartened to discover that “Happy Gilmore” wasn’t his given name, but rather a nickname bestowed upon him at the age of 6 after emerging victorious in the “Little People’s Golf Championship” tournament.

By the time he turned 12, it had essentially become his official moniker. And, according to his Twitter bio, he certainly knows how to swing. That’s good enough for me.
