A foursome was putting out on the green when a ball came bouncing over the crest of the hill, onto the green, and rolled to a holt 2 metres from the hole.
Unable to resist the temptation, one of the foursome picked up the ball and placed it in the hole.
Very soon a golfer came puffing over the hill.
“Excuse me, did any of you see a ball come your way?”
“Sure, a hell of a shot, it’s in the hole.”
“In the hole!” said the puffing golfer excitedly, turning to hi mate just appearing over the crest, “Hey, Len, it’s in the hole”, he yelled, “Put me down for a nine!”

To celebrate the delayed US Masters this week. The building of Augusta National almost never happened, and it remained an economic burden through World War II: Founded at the beginning of the Great Depression, the original business plan called for 1,800 members, but when the first Masters was held in 1934, the club only had 76 paying members. The club couldn't afford to pay the first winner, Horton Smith, or any of the top finishers until 17 members chipped in for the purse. In 1946, the delivery of the winner's plaque to Herman Keiser was delayed to give time for the club and its members to pay for the silver.
