Brand New Ball
Jim had been playing golf for years. He had the finest equipment, but his technique never improved.
As his new golf partner watched, he teed up at the first hole and promptly drove a brand new ball into the woods.
On the second hole, he drove another new ball into a lake.
On the third, he lost a new ball in another part of the woods.
"Golf sure gets expensive after awhile," Jim said to his friend as he opened a new pack of balls.
"I have a suggestion," the friend said.
Jim didn't reply, but looked at him with a glare.
"Why don't you use an old ball when you tee off?"
"Because," Jim responded, feeling a bit testy, "I've never had an old ball!"
