"This is a picture of Luke's Father's Day gift to Dad in 2008."

"Dad decided to use the gift as an opportunity to
share some interesting perspectives on the game of golf."

They call it golf
because all of the 
other four-letter 
 words were taken. 
The reason that the golf pro
tells you to keep your head down is
 so that you cannot see him laughing. 
Golf is a game
in which you 
yell 'fore', shoot six,
 and write down five. 

 Your chance of 
shooting a hole-in-one:
42,952  to 1.
Golf can best be defined as
an endless series of tragedies
 obscured by the occasional miracle. 
I have a tip that can take
5 strokes off your game: 
it is called an eraser.

Golf: no matter how
badly you play, it is
always possible to get worse.
A "gimme" is
 an agreement between two golfers... 
neither of whom can putt very well.
I play in the low 80s.
If it's any hotter than that,
I won't play.


  Ever wonder why golf is growing in popularity and why
people who don't even play go to tournaments or watch it on TV?
The following is not intended to offend fans of other sports.
  It is, rather, an attempt to put everything in its proper perspective.  


Here's a little slice of golf history that you might enjoy.
Why do golf courses have 18 holes - not 20, or 10, or an even dozen?
During a discussion among the club's membership board at St. Andrews in 1858, a senior member
  pointed out that it takes exactly 18 shots to polish off a fifth of Scotch. By limiting himself to only one  
shot of Scotch per hole, the Scot figured that a round of golf was finished when the Scotch ran out.
Now you know.
