Doesn't matter to me, stay with it, get rid of it, I'll roll with it. I don't mind little changes of pace.

I feel like I am derailing my own thread. But when I was young (I am now 72), I shot a round of golf--for the first time--and shot a 72.

Sounds like I must have been a golfing phenom, right?

Well, it sounds like that--until I mention the small (and slightly inconvenient) fact that it was for only nine holes...

For me to shoot 72, I have to quit a few holes short of 18. Either that or play a par 3 course.

A young man was on the golf course when a older gentleman who was at least in his late 80s approached him asking if he could play with him. The young man was happy to have the company and they proceeded to play together.

The older gentleman was surprisingly good. He couldn't hit very far, but he was remarkably accurate and was doing very well.

On the 7th hole the young man found himself blocked by a tree. As he was looking at the situation and tried to figure out what to do the old man said, "When I was your age, I would have hit my ball right over that tree."

Accepting the challenge the young man takes a mighty swing, the ball sailed into the branches of the tree and bounced off a limb and landed barely a foot from where the young man had hit the ball.

To which the old man commented, "Of course when I was your age, that tree would have been barely 3 feet tall."

Last time I played golf (2001...a couple of months after my car accident), I shot a 134...Got a trophy for "Most Honest Golfer"...
