GOLF REVENGE


The story is told of two long-time golfing buddies who decided one day that they would play the ball where it lies, no matter what.


On the 14th hole, one of them sliced his drive and it ended up on the cart path. As he reached down to pick up his ball to get relief, his friend said, "Wait a minute! We agreed that we would not improve our lies! Remember? No matter what!" The first player tried to explain that he was entitled to this relief, that it was in the rules of golf. But the second fellow would not allow it.


Throwing up his hands in disgust, the man went to the cart and grabbed a club. As he stood near his ball, he took a few practice swings, each time scraping the club on the pavement and sending out showers of sparks, leaving scratches on the bottom of his club. Finally, he took his shot. The club hit the path again, sparks went flying, but his ball shot straight towards the green, landed and rolled to a stop--two inches from the cup.


"Great shot!" his friend exclaimed. "What club did you use?"


The man gave him a smile. "Your 7 iron!"


(From a sermon by David Owens, Amazing Grace, 8/9/2010)
