Joe, from Semmes Alabama and a notoriously bad golfer, hits his ball off the first tee and watches as it slices to the right and disappears through an open window.
Figuring that’s the end of it, he gets another ball out of his bag and plays on.
On the eighth hole, a Mobile County Sheriff’s Deputy walks up to Joe on the course and says, “Did you hit a golf ball through a window back there?”
Joe says, “Yes I did.”
“Well,” says the deputy, “it knocked a lamp over, scaring the dog, which raced out of the house onto Schillinger Road. A driver rammed into a house up on Schillinger to avoid the dog, sending three people to hospital. And it’s all because you sliced the ball.”
“Oh my goodness,” says Joe, “is there anything I can do?”
“Yes there is,” the deputy says.
“Try keeping your head down and close up your stance a bit.”
