Whimsy from the world of golf
Aug 07, 2014

An outstanding woman golfer reluctantly agreed to play in the husband and wife alternate shot tournament at her club. She teed off on the first hole, a par four, hitting a great drive down the middle of the fairway. Upon reaching the ball, she said to her husband, a notorious hacker: “Just hit it toward the green, honey. Anywhere around there will be fine.”
The husband proceeded to shank the ball deep into the woods. Undaunted, the wife said, “That’s okay, sweetheart.” 
She found the ball in a horrible position, but played the shot of her life to get the ball within two feet of the hole. She told her husband to knock the ball in.
Her husband hit the putt too hard and the ball rolled off the green and into a bunker. Still maintaining her composure, the wife summoned all her skill and holed the shot from the bunker.
She took the ball out of the hole and while walking off the green, calmly said to her husband, “Honey, that was a bogey five and that’s okay, but I think we can do better on the next hole.”
To which he replied, “Listen, don’t complain to me. Only two of those five shots were mine.”
