Other athletes and celebrities often take up sports as a hobby. They choose to participate in pro-ams, and sometimes even tournaments to show off their talent. Adam Sandler – who is connected to golf in many ways – has previously performed in a lot of pro-ams.
However, Sandler’s shots from the 2005 Sony Open Hawaii pro-am remain iconic. Fans still revisit the moment, laughing at the actor and his antics.
WATCH: Adam Sandler’s 2005 Sony Open shot
While at the 2005 Hawaii Open, Sandler teed off unlike anyone else. He hit with so much power, that his club went flying in one direction, people following it instead of the ball. The shot came after the audience encouraged him, Sandler’s stance slightly nervous.
Irrespective, that particular hole will always bring out a smile on people’s faces.
“He dresses the same no matter where he is!!” wrote one fan, while others thought of Rob Schneider. Many noted that the club probably went further than the ball, referring to the 55-year-old as a legend. Other users just laughed, unable to get over how Sandler shot and reacted.

Reactions on Twitter were similar, people expressing their amusement at Sandler’s shot. “What a kook!” wrote a fan, while another noted that the club did go further than the ball.
Adam Sandler and golf
Sandler’s obvious connection to golf is his 1996 feature film Happy Gilmore. While the film might not be accurate, it does remain a favorite to many. The movie is over 25 years old and has only gained popularity over the years. In the movie, we have Sandler’s character of the same name pursue golf in order to buy back his grandmother’s house by winning the Tour Championship.
Sandler has previously spoken of the movie, holding it close to his heart. Last February, Sandler played golf to celebrate the movie, even picking on his movie rival.
