On the first tee, John turns to Dave and says, “Play for $10?” Gary agrees, and they start their round.

The lifelong friends reach the 9th tee with John ahead by one. After Dave hits a great drive, right down the middle, John steps up and promptly hooks it into the deep rough and trees.

They look and look and look, but no ball can be found. The three-minute time limit on searching for lost balls is about to run out. John takes a quick glance over to Dave to see if he is looking, then reaches into his pocket and drops a new ball into the rough.

“Found it!” John says triumphantly.

Dave looks at his friend with great disappointment. “After all the years we’ve been friends,” he says, “you’d cheat at golf for a measly 10 bucks?”

“What do you mean ‘cheat’?” John replies. “I found my ball sitting right here.”

Dave lets out a heavy sigh. “And you would lie to me, too? All for a tiny sum of money? You would cheat me and lie to me, for what? For $10? I can’t believe you’d stoop so low.”

John replies: “What makes you so sure I’m cheating and lying?”

“Because,” Dave replies, “I’ve been standing on your ball for the last three minutes!”

11th July 4 Person Ambrose Sponsored by RA & KA Dance Builders

A golfer, now into his golden years, had a lifelong ambition to play the17th hole at TPC Sawgrass exactly the way the pros do it.

The pros drive the ball out over the water onto the small green that is on a small spit of land. It was something the golfer had tried hundreds of times without success. His ball had always fallen short, into the water.

Because of this, he never used a new ball on this particular hole. He always picked out one that had a cut or a nick, as did many other "average" golfers when negotiating very challenging holes.

Recently he went to Sawgrass to try again. When he came to the fateful hole, he teed up an old, cut ball as usual, and said a silent prayer.

However, before he could hit the ball, a powerful voice from above seemed to be booming out from the clouds, saying:

"Wait! Replace that old ball with a brand new one."

The golfer complied, with some slight misgivings, despite the fact that this same force seemed to be implying that he was going to finally achieve his lifelong ambition.

As he stepped up to the tee once more, the voice came down again:

"Wait. Step back. Take a practice swing."

So he stepped back and took a practice swing, certain now that this heavenly force was going to make his dream come true.

The voice boomed out again:

"Take another practice swing."

Dutifully, he did. He stopped expectantly and waited ...

A long silence followed ...

Then the voice again:

"Use the old ball."

This week’s titbit we know is fact. When? last Monday. Where? 8th hole Swansea Golf Club. Who? Keith Breheny. The ball was sweetly struck and flew like an arrow from Robin Hood’s bow, landed on the green like a butterfly with sunburnt feet, then straight into the hole. AN ACE. A Hole in One. Well done Keith, rest assured no one, not even Arnold, Jack or Tiger will ever have a better score on that hole.
