FTF Video: The Ladies Tee - Golf Joke

Last Updated on Saturday, 08 March 2014 14:22 Saturday, 08 March 2014 12:11


This video of a time honoured golf joke is definitely worth a look.
Suffice it to say (please, no tongue lashings from 'grammarphobes' - we have chosen to use the OED supported 'modern day' version of the term- ed) we are extremely pleased that the gentleman concerned in the video is not ultimately required to pay the old school 'penalty' for his original transgression.
We do however feel it may be reasonable to question the tact or lack thereof being demonstrated by the 'starter'.

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Florida — This already is shaping up as a big year for Graeme McDowell — his wife is expecting their first child.

McDowell and his wife, Kristin, were married in October in The Bahamas. He said they found out she was pregnant on New Year's Day, shortly after returning from Northern Ireland to see his family during the holidays.

"We found on Tuesday it's a girl," he said Friday at the Honda Classic. "Obviously, we're real excited."
