Golfing Jokes

Arnold Palmer & Tiger Woods

Arnold Palmer and Tiger Woods are playing the 16th hole, when Tiger's tee shot lands behind a huge, 100 foot fir tree. Tiger looks at Arnie and says, "How would you play this one? Lay up and take the extra stroke?"
Arnold replies: "When I was your age, I'd just play right over this tree."
Tiger, not wanting to be shown up by ol' Arnold Palmer, proceeds to hit the ball high, but not high enough. It bounces off the tree and lands out of bounds. Tiger, really ticked at this point, asks Arnold how he EVER hit a ball over that tree.
Arnold replied: "Well, when I was your age, that tree was only three feet tall."


The Golf Pro Prayer

The Pro is my Shepherd,
I shall not Slice.
He maketh me to Drive Straight
down Green Fairways;
He leadeth me Safely
across Still Water-Hazards;
He restoreth my Approach Shots.
He Leadeth me in the Paths of
Accuracy for my Game's Sake.
Yea, though I chip through the Roughs
in the shadows of Sand Traps,
I will fear no Bogies.
For his Advice is with me;
His Putter and Irons,
they comfort me.
He prepareth my Strategy for me
in the presence of mine Opponents;
He anointeth my head with Confidence:
The Cup will not be runneth over!
Surely Birdies and Eagles shall follow
me all the Rounds of my Life,
And I will score in the Low Eighties.

Amen
