A Tough Shot

A young man who was an avid golfer found himself with a few hours to spare one afternoon. He figured if he hurried and played very fast, he could get in nine holes before he had to head home.

Just as he was about to tee off, an older gentleman shuffled onto the tee and asked if he could accompany the young man, as he was golfing alone. Unable to say no, he allowed the old gent to join him.

To his surprise the old man played fairly quickly. he didn't hit the ball far, but plodded along consistently and didn't waste much time.

Finally, they reached the ninth fairway, and the young man found himself with a tough shot. There was a large pine tree right in front of his ball - and directly between his ball and the green.

After several minutes of debating how to hit the shot, he heard the old man say, "You know, when I was your age I'd hit the ball right over that tree."

With that challenge placed before him, the youngster swung hard, hit the ball up, right smack into the top of the tree trunk, and it thudded back on the ground not a foot from where it had originally lain.

The old man offered one more comment, "Of course, when I was your age that pine tree was only three feet tall."
