Brief Synopsis

For centuries, golf has been a gentleman''s game. A game of tradition, etiquette and, above all, sportsmanship... until now. Happy Gilmore is a hockey player skating on thin ice who discovers that his wicked slap shot easily converts into a crushing 400 yard tee shot with the potential for big bucks. Happy''s career takes a 180 degree swing and lands him on the Pro Golf Tour, where he''s about to turn the gentleman''s game into a contact sport. A working stiff with a temper as short as his drives are long, Happy doesn''t fit on the manicured greens of the country club. His outrageous antics, both on and off the course, cause an uproar among the players and officials; but his roughhouse style attracts hordes of new blue collar fans. Now Happy is going from rinks to links--and driving the game of golf straight into the ground.
