it as it lays
Bill and Ralph,
both of equal ability, decide to have a round together and "play it as it lays"
on all shots. Both hit their tee shots on the par-5 No.1 hole down the middle
and about 260. They drive up for the second shot, and the Bill hits his shot
down the middle for an easy approach. But Ralph slices his over the trees and
it ends up in the cart path of the adjoining hole.
"Guess I get a
free drop from the cart path," he says. "Oh no," says Bill, "We agreed. Play
it as it lays." So Ralph drives Bill up to his ball in front of the green, drops
him off and drives over to his ball on the cart path. Bill watches in amusement
as sparks shower down from the practice swings of his opponent, then, in amazement
as a perfectly struck shot lands on the green and roles to within 3 ft. of the
pin. Ralph drives back to the green.
Bill says, "Great
shot back there! What club did you use?" Ralph responds, "Your six iron."
