Continuity mistake: In the final round, when Happy and Shooter McGavin are about to tee off on the first hole, they show a picture of the 18th green with the Volkswagen Beetle already crashed into the TV tower. However, this doesn't happen until Happy gets hit by the car later in the game. (01:09:25)
A former hockey player, Happy Gilmore, needs to raise money for his grandmother, who is under fire from the IRS. He needs to find a way to raise $270,000 in order to save the house. He manages to win a golf open, his hockey playing apparently giving him the ability to drive the ball superhuman distances. The tour kingpin, Shooter McGavin, feels threatened by Happy, insulting him. Happy forgets about the money and stays on the tour just to beat Shooter.
Happy Gilmore: I'm stupid. You're smart. I was wrong. You were right. You're the best. I'm the worst. You're very good-looking. I'm not attractive.
