Arthur is 90 years old. He's played golf every day since his retirement 25 years ago.

One day he arrives home looking downcast.

"That's it," he tells his wife. "I'm giving up golf. My eyesight has got so bad that once I'd hit the ball I couldn't see where it went."

His wife sympathizes and makes him a cup of tea. As they sit down she says, "Why don't you take my brother with you and give it one more try."

"That's no good" sighs Arthur. "Your brother's a hundred and three. He can't help."

"He may be a hundred and three", says the wife, "but his eyesight is perfect."

So the next day Arthur heads off to the golf course with his brother-in-law. He tees up, takes an almighty swing and squints down the fairway.

He turns to the brother-in-law. "Did you see the ball?"

"Of course I did!"

"Where did it go?" says Arthur.

"I can't remember."

I once played a round a golf with two old friends, both well into their 80's. One had poor vision, the other was hard of hearing. They messed with each other all the way around the course. The deaf guy would tell the blind guy he hit it into the trees or a san trap, when almost every shot was right down the middle. Not far, but very straight.

The blind guy would flinch like somebody yelled fore just as the deaf guy was standing over his ball. It was pretty funny. You could tell they had been doing this for years.

BTW, they both beat me. From 150 yards and in, they were deadly. Great short games. My 250 yard drives did me no good at all. Very valuable lesson.

Lobo-Many years ago while still in college a couple of us went to the local municipal course for a quick "18". They asked if they could put a 3rd player with us so naturally we agreed. He rode in a cart and had a bad limp. After a few holes and everybody started joking around (and drinking) he confided in us that he was in a bad wreck a few years earlier and lost his leg. As soon as he told me where it happened I remembered being at the scene when they took him to the hospital. Like the old guys, he didn't hit it very far but it was always on the short grass.
