Other mistake: When Bob Barker reaches up to grab Happy by the neck, his head is resting on the grass immediately before and after that shot. Happy was standing fully upright, so there's no way Bob Barker's arm could have been that long.

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.

Trivia: During one of the tournaments, a few of Happy's fans are visible in the background holding cut out signs of his face. This is the same but blown up picture used in Billy Madison to mark the grade he was in.

Suggested correction: I Googled the face sign from this movie while watching Billy Madison, and they are not the same. You can tell the facial expression on Happy Gilmore features a wider smile and arched eyebrows, whereas the cutout of Billy Madison is more straightfaced and his eyebrows are a little furrowed, as evidenced by the wrinkles between them.
