Happy Gilmore Putter

This may seem more of a joke, but I am serious when I ask this question. Has anyone actually ever used or seen a putter like the one Adam Sandler used on Happy Gilmore. If so, was it any good? Was it a well balanced putter? I've used many different putters, ones shaped like banana's, a old boot, a eagle head, but never a hockey stick. So if you have any information on this type of putter, please let me know. Thanks

If you are even cought red handed with any of those you are kicked off of my the courses in my city. They are very strict since someone was injured (don't ask what happened, it was stupid).

I wouldn't even attempt to use a hockey stick.

I don't know if these are dangerous or not, but c'mon.

Happy Gilmore drove the ball by charging at a tee at full speed. Do you think real golfers do that? The hockey stick was something that really wouldn't, and shouldn't, work in real life. Stick to a normal putter.

Who would be stupid enough to bring a hockey stick? You would be stared at the whole time you're playing! Plus, you wouldn't do good at all.

Thumbs up

Hell yeah, bring on the hockey sticks. Maybe that why my putting sucks. Im using the wrong equipment. Maybe I should start using a field hockey stick or maybe I should use a lacrosse stick in the sand. Are we even discussing this?

I would like to see a hockey stick that really would work well. I would take the laughs and stares if it would improve my game.

Atleast somebody out there is on my side. I didn't mean an actual hockey stick. I meant a small, iron shafter, minature hockey stick/putter. Of course the possibilities of it being any good are slim to none, but its fun to dream a little. If they actually had a hockey stick/putter on the market that actually worked. I would, without a doubt, go out and buy one regardless of price.

I don't see the point, if your a true golfer this would just ruin your reputation. Even thinking about it is kinda stupid, although. If someone did use it i'd have to stop and laugh.

I have never seen any type of putter that was shaped like a hockey stick, and as a matter of fact I don't think that I have seen one that has been any sort of odd shape.

As said before, maybe just as a joke they have some out there.

There is an offical Happy Putter in existance:


It doesn't look all that bad, though I think the others are right to say that you'd probably get some strange looks. Never saw one in use before, and never used one.

Meh, I don't think you can get the same feel with a wooden putter. Although it looks pretty cool I don't think it is very efficient.

Nice picture though
