If Happy Gilmore was filmed in 2017, you can bet almost anything that Shooter McGavin would probably have celebrated like this. Instead, Rickie Fowler took it upon himself to celebrate with one of the iconic moves of 2017 after nailing a 20-foot putt for birdie.

This may seem like an odd choice for a celebration, but Rickie was probably inspired by a meal he had the other night.

He must have liked the meal so much, he decided to pay tribute to the chef.
Fowler is currently tied for ninth place in the Waste Management Phoenix Open at -4 after the first round of play.
