An octogenarian who was an avid golfer moved to a new town and
joined the local Country Club. He went to the Club for the first
time to play but was told that there wasn't anybody he could play
with because they were already out on the course. - He repeated
several times that he really wanted to play today. Finally, the
assistant Pro said he would play with him and asked him how many
strokes he wanted for a bet.
The 80 year old said, "I really don't need any strokes as I have
been playing quite well. The only problem I have, is getting out
of sand traps."
He did play well. Coming to the par four 18th they were all even.
The Pro had a nice drive and was able to get on the green and
two-putt for a par. The old man had a nice drive, but his approach
shot landed in a sand trap next to the green. Playing from the bunker
he hit a high ball, which landed on the green and rolled into the cup.
Birdie, match and all the money!
The Pro walked over to the sand trap where his opponent was standing.
He said: "Nice shot, I thought you said you have a problem getting
out of sand traps?"
Replied the octogenarian "I do, would you please give me a hand."
