Sure there are jokes in all sports but no sport has the depth of jokes like golf. Here are a few of my favorites: Is This Best Golf Joke Ever?
I can just picture ‘Slamming Sam’ delivering the lines with that hillbilly drawl and a glint in his eye.
A number of years after he retired, Sam Snead was playing a round of golf with an aspiring young Tour player. As they were waiting on the first tee, Sam’s opponent, who was rather large and powerful, asked Sam’s advice about the upcoming tee shot. “Mr. Snead, do you think I can clear those tall pine trees over on the right?”
Sam thought for a moment and replied, “When I was your age, I could clear those trees with no problem.”
The young man, brimming with confidence, teed up his ball, took a few practice swings and promptly whacked his ball right into the middle of the pine grove. He looked at Sam, quizzically and disgustedly threw his driver back into the bag as Sam coolly remarked, “Of course, when I was your age those trees were only eight feet tall!”
The following joke was voted by Scotland as the best golf joke ever.
Two Scots, Rabby and Angus, are playing golf and come upon a par three requiring a 180-yard carry over a large pond. Rabby tees up and hits it into the middle of the pond. He reaches into his bag to find that he is out of balls. He then asks Angus for a ball and proceeds to hit it into the pond as well. This happens three or four more times and when he asks Angus for yet another ball, Angus says, “Rabby, these balls cost me a pretty penny,”
Rabby replies, “Och, Angus if you cannee afford to play the game, ya should nay be out here.”
