A pretty terrible
golfer was playing a round of golf for which he had hired a caddie. The round
proved to be somewhat tortuous for the caddie to watch and he was getting a bit
exasperated by the poor play of his employer.
At one point the ball lay about 180 yards from the green and the as the golfer
sized up his situation, he asked his caddie, "Do you think I can get there with
a 5-iron?" And the caddie replied, "Eventually."
