BLIND DATE – The following storywas submitted by a cargo gentlemanfrom an airline in the Middle East, whoshall remain anonymous, simply becausehe doesn’t play golf.
Stevie Wonder and Tiger Woods arein a restaurant having dinner.
Woods turns to Wonder and says, "How’s the singing career going?"
Stevie Wonder replies, "Not too bad. How’s the golf?"
Woods replies, "Not too bad. I’ve had some problems with my swing, but I think I’ve got that going right now."
Stevie says, "I always find that whenmy swing goes wrong,
I need to stop playing for a while and not think about it. Then, the next time I play, it seems to be all right."
Tiger says, "You play golf?"
Wonder says, "Oh, yes, I’ve been playing for years."
Woods says, "But you’re blind! How can you play golf if you can’t see?"
Wonder replies, "I get my caddy to stand in the middle of the fairway and call to me. I listen for the sound of his voice and play the ball toward him. Then, when I get to where the ball lands, the caddy moves to the green or farther down the fairway and again I play the ball toward his voice."
Woods asks, "What’s your handicap?"
Stevie says, "Well, I’m a scratch golfer."
Woods, incredulous, says to Stevie, "We’ve got to play a round sometime."
Wonder replies, "Well, people don’t take me seriously, so I only play for money, and never play for less than $10,000 a hole."
Woods thinks about it and says, "OK, I’m up for that. When would you like to play?"
Stevie says, "Pick a night."
