Anyone for Golf?

Golf_2Did you hear about the two guys who went golfing ... the one guy hit the ball right down the middle of the fairway about 150 metres. He was so excited ... he had never been down the middle of the fairway in his life. He was so excited ... he got down to where his ball was and ... not only was it 150 metres down the fairway, it had rolled up on top of an ant hill. So it was teed up about 2 inches for him. So he grabs his wood, he is so excited. He's never been here before. He's never had this opportunity before. He takes that club (a 3 wood) and swings as hard as he can and he misses the ball. He kills 5000 ants in this ant hill.

He can't believe it - he killed 5000 ants, but the ball stayed on top of the ant hill. God must be in this - He wants me to hit a great shot. So he grabs his club and swings again, misses again and kills 4998 ants. Now there had been 10,000 ants in this ant hill and there were only 2 ants left.

And one ant looked at the other ant and said, "I tell you what, if we're going to survive, we had better get on the ball!!"
