A 90-year old couple were
crazy about golf ...
He would hit the ball a good distance,
bit almost always with a wicked slice. She, on the other hand,
hit the ball straight as an arrow, but only about 20 yards at a
One day on their course he sliced his
drive in to the woods. His Caddy found the ball, right behind an
old abandoned barn. The old duffer said, "Well, I'll just chip
back to the fairway and go from there", to which his young caddy
says, "NO!! I'll open the front and back doors of the barn, you

says, "Lookit, sonny, Tiger Woods wouldn't make that shot. What
makes you think I can?"
"What have you got to lose?", asks the
caddy. So, the fellow agrees. The caddy opens up the barn doors
and hands him the correct club. The old guy lines up his shot,
and strikes the ball as solidly as possible. The ball goes in to
the barn, rattles off a couple of walls, shoots out a side
window back toward the fairway, hits his wife on the temple and
kills her instantly.
Next day, after the funeral, the guy
goes to the same course for a round of golf. He has the same
caddy. On the same hole where he'd killed his wife he hits his
tee shot to almost the identical spot. His caddy finds the ball
and suggests that he drive it through the barn, land on the
green, 2-putt and save par.
The old man looks at the caddy and says,
"Now sonny, the last time you gave me that advice, things didn't
work out so good. As I recall, I took a seven."
