Trevino would like to have a mulligan on 'Happy Gilmore' cameo

HappyIf you regret having spent time in the theater to watch it, just think how Leo Trevino feels: he says he wishes he hadn’t been in the movie itself.

Speaking this week during an appearance at the University of Texas at Tyler’s Patriot Golf Classic, the 73-year-old icon said that if he could take a cinematic mulligan, he would have read the script before agreeing to appear in the Adam Sandler golf comedy, "Happy Gilmore."

“If I knew they were going to use all those foul words in there,” Trevino said, “I never would have done it.”

Trevino makes several brief appearances in the film, mostly to shake his head in silent disapproval at the main character’s antics. His one line comes during an exchange between Sandler’s Gilmore and his golf pro rival, Shooter McGavin.

Gilmore: "That's right, I'm gonna beat your ass on the course!"
McGavin: "Yeah, right. And Grizzly Adams had a beard."
Trevino: "Grizzly Adams DID have a beard."

Not exactly Oscar material.

But whatever. At least he didn’t appear in "Caddyshack II."
