Hal is a minor antagonist in the 1996 film Happy Gilmore. His name is only revealed by his nametag and is only referred to as "that orderly guy".
Hal is the sadistic manager of the retirement home where Happy Gilmore's grandmother lived briefly, forcing her and the other residents to perform hard manual labor and frequently giving them death threats. When dealing with their families, however, he put on a friendly and cheery facade and made it appear as though everyone was happy and being well taken care of. It is likely that, based on his behavior, Hal is a psychopath who was obsessed with control and exploiting the elderly residents for his own personal financial gain (for instance, forcing them to knit quilts for hours, which he would later sell). Because of this, he is arguably worse than the film's primary antagonist, Shooter McGavin, who just wanted to win the Gold Jacket.
In a deleted scene, he is seen again when Happy comes to take his grandma out of the retirement home and learns the truth about what was going on. Hal is subsequently thrown out of the window and upon landing says "My God. He's Strong.".
