A husband reluctantly agreed to play in
the couples' alternate shot
tournament at his club. He teed off on the first hole, a par four,
blistered a drive 300 yards down the middle of the fairway.
Upon reaching the ball, the husband said to his wife "Just hit it
the green, anywhere around there will be fine."
The wife proceeded to shank the ball deep into the woods. Undaunted,
husband said "That's OK, Sweetheart" and spent the full five minutes
looking for the ball. He found it just in time, but in a horrible
position. He played the shot of his life to get the ball within two
feet of the hole. He told his wife to knock the ball in. His wife
proceeded to knock the ball off the green and into a bunker.
Still maintaining composure, the husband summoned all of his skill
holed the shot from the bunker. He took the ball out of the hole and,
while walking off the green, put his arm around his wife and calmly
said, "Honey, that was a bogey, and that's OK, but I think we can do
better on the next hole."
To which she replied, "Listen, YOU JERK, don't bitch at me,
only 2 of
those 5 shots were mine."
