Golf Challenge
A young man who was also 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 9 holes before he had to head home. Just as he was about to tee off
an old gentleman shuffled onto the tee and asked if he could accompany the
young man as he was golfing alone. Not being able 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 9th fairway and the young man found himself with a tough
shot. There was a large pine tree right in front of his ball and it was
directly between his ball and the green. After several minutes of debating
how to hit the shot the old man finally said, "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 lay. The old man offered
one more comment, "Of course, when I was your age that pine tree was only 3
feet tall."
