The tournament has invited Adam Sandler to play a round early in the week (Sept. 2-5) to commemorate the 25th anniversary of “Happy Gilmore,” the comedy in which he plays a washed-up hockey player who discovers a hidden knack for golf (and super-long drives).
The TOUR Championship posted on social media, “Hey, @AdamSandler, if this gets 10K retweets, will you come play 18 holes with us at the end of August? We take a lot of pride in having you as the 1996 TOUR Championship winner.
