And now for the golf story…


Four gentlemen go out to play golf one sunny morning…

A vicar, a doctor and an engineer were waiting one morning for a particularly slow group of golfers. The engineer fumed, “What’s wrong with these people?

We must have been waiting for 15 minutes!”

The doctor chimed in, “I don’t know, but I’ve never seen such ineptitude!”

The vicar said, “Hey, here comes the greens keeper. Let’s have a word with him.”

“Hi George! Say, what’s with that group ahead of us? They’re rather slow, aren’t they?”

The greens keeper replied, “Oh, yes, that’s a group of blind firefighters. They lost their sight saving our clubhouse from a fire last year, so we always let them play for free anytime.”

The group was silent for a moment. The vicar said, “That’s so sad. I think will say a special prayer for them tonight.”


The doctor said, “Good idea. And I’m going to contact my ophthalmologist friend and see if there’s anything he can do for them.”

The engineer said, “Why can’t these guys play at night?”


* Then there was the golfer who was sentenced to be hanged. He asked the warden if he could take a few practice swings first.
