Milo and Paddy are standing on the 18th tee at their Irish Country Club. They are the final twosome in the Irish Country Club Championship and are tied for the lead. The 18th hole is a beautiful par four with a deep valley, descending to a dogleg right.
Both Milo and Paddy hit long, straight tee shots which disappear down into the valley. A short time later, the fore caddie appears at the top of the hill and announces that both balls are within 6 inches of each other, but there's a problem. Both of the golf balls are Titleist number 4s.
Milo and Paddy look at each other and realise that they had not informed each other as to what kind of ball they were playing, nor its number. They quickly descend into the valley and, sure enough, their two Titleist golf balls are right next to each at the bottom of the valley in the middle of the fairway.
Paddy looks at Milo and says, "We had better get a ruling from a tournament official to straighten this out. This is the Irish Country Club Championships and we don't want to be disqualified for making a mistake and hitting the wrong ball. After all, we are tied for the lead.”
Soon after, a rules official appears and examines the two number 4 Titleist golf balls. He then looks up at Milo and Paddy and says, "Which one of you is playing the orange ball?

The Rider: After they went into the locker room, another golfer who had heard the old guys talking about their game went to the pro and said, "I've been playing golf for a long time and thought I knew all the terminology of the game, but what's a rider? The pro said, "A rider is when you hit the ball far enough to actually get in the golf cart and ride to it."
