Tigers’ Wonder Bet

Tiger Woods & Stevie Wonder are in a bar… Tiger says Stevie, “How’s the singing career going?” Stevie replies, “Not too bad. How’s the golf?” Woods replies, “I’ve had some problems with my swing, but I think I’ve got that right, now.” Stevie: “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.” Incredulous, Tiger says, “You play GOLF?” Stevie: “Yes, I’ve been playing for years.”  Tiger: “But — you’re blind! How can you play golf if you can’t see?” Stevie: “Well, 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 Tiger. “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.” Tiger: “What’s your handicap?” Stevie: “Well, actually — I’m a scratch golfer.” Woods says to Stevie, “We’ve got to play a round sometime.” Stevie: “Well, people don’t take me seriously, so I only play ,for money, and never play for less than $10,000 a hole. Is that a problem?” Woods thinks about it and says, “I can afford that; OK,I ‘m game for that.. $10,000 a hole is fine with me. When would you like to play?” Stevie:     “Pick a night.”
