Late News. Jim Miley calling his team ‘Two under Pa’ and other willing participants will participate in a marathon, playing 72 holes in one day, on Monday 14th December. The event is to raise funds for the Cancer Council. If there is anyone who would like to contribute the fund, information is available on the Cancer Council web-site.

On the first tee at Royal Canberra Golf Club, a hacker teed off directly into a tree. The ball struck square in the middle and came screaming back past the caddy back to the tee. The golfer dropped his cub and caught the ball just in time to keep himself from being struck in the head.

Regaining his composure, he turned to his caddie. “What should I do now?” he asked.

“Why not try the same shot again, sir. But this time, keep your hands in your pockets.”

At a well-known Brisbane course, a local minister completed a round with the pro. The cleric’s game was awful, and his opponent was unrelenting. Even in the clubhouse, the pro continued to taunt the minister on his poor performance.

The man of the cloth had finally had enough. “let’s play again next week, but this time we’ll make it a foursome – invite your parents to join us. Who knows, after the game, I may even marry them.”

At St Andrews course, an American named Stravinsky drove magnificently off the 17th tee. His brand-new ball sailed over the famous dogleg and out of sight onto the Old Course hotel roof.

When he got to where he thought his drive had ended, no ball! Just a Scot who looked suspicious.

“Notice a ball here?’ the American inquired pointedly,


“Is that a ball in your hand?”

“Aye. MY ball.”

“My ball had Stravinsky on it.”

“A bonnie coincidence, laddie. That’s just what I’M playing this morning: a Stravinsky’.”

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!”

Since the departure of Edward VIII from the throne of England in 1936, the Royal Family has displayed little interest in golf. Once the Duke of Edinburg was attending a charity tournament in which Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer were playing and was asked whether he had ever seen the great twosome play before. His reply put the Royal attitude to golf firmly in perspective.

“Oh yes,” said the Duke, “I’ve often seen them on television when I’ve been waiting for something else to come on.”
