A Hole in “How Many?”

Golf is so popular simply because it is the best game in the world at which to be bad.

~A.A. Milne

Two golfers were on the green of the 3rd hole at Bethpage Golf Course, when all of a sudden a golf ball came from nowhere and rolled right up to the cup. One of the golfers said, “Let’s put the ball in the cup and give the guy a hole-in-one.”

All of a sudden a golfer came out of the woods and said, “Did any of you see a golf ball around here?”

One of the golfers on the green said, “Yes, it landed right in the cup.”

“Good,” said the man who hit the “hole-in-one,” “that gives me a 13 for this hole.”
