Stevie and Tiger
Stevie Wonder and Tiger Woods meet at a
fund raiser. Woods turns to Wonder
and says: "How is the singing career going?"
Stevie Wonder replies: "Not too bad! How's the golf?"
Woods replies: "Not too bad, I've had some
problems with my swing,
but I think I've got that right now."
Stevie Wonder says: "I always find that
when my swing goes wrong, I
need to stop playing for a while and not think about it. Then, the
next time I play, it seems to be all right.
Tiger Woods says: "You play golf?"
Stevie Wonder says: "Oh, yes, I've been playing for years."
Woods says: "But, you're blind. How can you
play golf if you're
Wonder replies: "I get my caddy to stand in
the middle of the
fairway and call to me. I listen for the sound of his voice and play
the ball towards him. Then, when I get to where the ball lands, the caddy
moves to the green or farther down the fairway and again I play the
ball towards his voice."
"But, how do you putt?", asks Woods.
"Well," says Stevie, "I get
my caddy to lean down in front of the hole and call to me with his
head on the ground and I just play the ball towards his voice."
Woods asks: "What's your handicap?"
Stevie says, "Well, I'm a scratch golfer."
Woods, incredulous, says to Stevie: "We've
got to play a round
Wonder replies: "Well, people don't take me
seriously, so I only
play for money, and never play for less than $10,000 a hole."
Woods thinks about it and says, "OK, I'm
game for that, when would
you like to play?"
Stevie says, "Pick a night."
