'Happy Gilmore' one of best golf movies ever

When I did a survey last year about best all-time hockey movies - in the wake of the release of the spectacularly awful "Love Guru" - several readers asked whether "Happy Gilmore" is eligible.

I didn't really know, having never seen it. Last night, I did. My verdict: No! It's a golf movie.

And I liked it.

Hard to believe it came out 13 years ago. Adam Sandler was only 29 when it was released.
