Ready to feel ancient? Adam Sandler's classic sports comedy Happy Gilmore turned 25 this week.
To celebrate this special anniversary, the man himself reprised his character in a video uploaded to social media yesterday (February 16), which sees him out on the green once more.
A bearded Sandler tells the camera: "OK, it's been 25 years since I've done this. Let's see what happens – I'm scared; Shooter McGavin this is for you..."
As you'll see below, the actor proceeds to smash a golfball out of shot with aplomb.
In the comment section, co-star Ben Stiller offered a funny response: "That's a beautiful swing Mr. Gilmore. Congrats on your anniversary, and being such a loving grandson. So happy to be a small part of taking good care of her during her "golden years" [winky-face emoji]."
Inspired by Sandler's homemade video, Shooter star Christopher McDonald struck back with his own reprisal, and it's hilarious.
"Nice drive Gilmore. 25 years huh? Let's see if it's Shooter's tour – check it out," he says from his lounge. "Oh yeah, it's all about the short game. Drive for show, putt for the dough."

McDonald then cooly slots a golfball into a glass on the floor.
"Money! Shooter's still got it!" he boasts, before adding: "Well thank you to all the fans and thank you to you Adam Sandler."
