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 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 real problem I have is getting out of sand traps.”
And 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 was in range to two-putt for his 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 still standing in the trap. He said, “nice shot, but 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?”
