The avid golfer
Read all jokes from:Jewish (+6994)
Gary, an 80 year old avid golfer, moves to a new house in Barnet just to be near a golf club. So keen is Gary that not long after the last removal lorry has left, he gets into his car, takes a short trip to the Dyrham Park Country Club and quickly becomes a member of this well known golf club. Two days after that, he goes to Dyrham to play his first round there.
When he arrives, he’s told by Harold the on-duty Pro that as everyone is out on the course he won’t be able to play today. But our Gary doesn’t give in easily and nags that he really, desperately, with all his heart, wants to play. Harold gives in and says he himself will play with Gary, but only if they play for a $50 bet. Gary agrees.
On their way to the first hole, Harold asks Gary, “How many strokes do you want?”
“I dont need any strokes,” replies Gary, “I’ve been playing quite well this year and the only problem I have is getting out of sand traps.”
Gary then begins his first round of golf at Dyrham and for the next 3 hours he plays ‘out of his skin.’ Coming to the par four 18th, Gary and Harold are level. Harold produces a great drive which allows him to get onto the green in two and is then able to two-putt for a par. Gary also drives well but his approach shot lands in the sand trap next to the green. Gary gets into the bunker and hits a high ball which lands on the green and gently rolls into the hole. Match and $50 to Gary!
Harold immediately walks over to Gary and says, “That was a fantastic shot for an eighty year old, but I thought you told me you have a problem getting out of sand traps?”
“I do,” replies Gary, “could you please give me a hand?”
