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.”

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!”
