Jesus, Moses and St Peter were playing Heavenly Golf up in (where else?) Heaven one day.
The three came up to the 11 hole, a par 7, with a particularly difficult water hazard about 2/3 of the way down the fairway. To add to the hardship, the course had a dog-leg just past the water trap.
Moses was up first, and made a nice, smooth drive down the fairway. The ball had a nice bounce, right before the water trap. It certainly looked as if it would drop right into the water, but at the last minute, the waters parted to reveal a smooth rock at the bottom. The ball bounced off that rock at an angle, and bounced again right before the green.
"Nice shot, Moses," Jesus said.
"Thanks! You're up, Jesus."
Jesus took a minute to study the course, and selected his longest driver. He hit the ball smoothly, but it was a low-flying shot. The ball hit the ground running, and continued to skim along the surface as if it were a race-car at the Indy. I looked as if the ball would roll right into the water, though. But, when it hit the water, it continued to roll right across the stream, as if that water were as firm as concrete. The ball then banked off the far side, and rounded nicely to lie on the green next to the pin.
"Very nice shot, Jesus." Said St Peter.
Before St Peter could put his ball down for his shot, an older gentleman playing alone came up to the tee-off.
"Any of you mind if I play through?"
"Not at all" said Jesus, speaking for the other two, who were all smiles and nods.
The older man studied the course for only a brief instant, before decisively selecting his club. A nice 2-wood. He wiggled his shoes into the sod, and *smacked* that ball like it was nothing.
The ball flew down the course like it had wings, but was heading right for the water trap - right at the deepest part of the stream. But, just before it hit, a large fish jumped out of the water, and snatched the ball out of the air. Before the fish could make it all the way back into the water, however, a large Eagle grabbed the fish - ball and all, with it's talons and flew to a nearby tree. As the Eagle landed on a branch, the fish's head was smacked by the tree, and it spit that ball out.
The ball bounced from branch to branch as it fell. When it was near the bottom of the tree, a squirrel took it into it's mouth and scampered down the rest of the way, ran across the green and dived head-first (ball and all) into the hole.
A hole in one!
Jesus turned to the older man and said, "Nice shot, Dad!"
