When I Was Your Age I’d Effortlessly…

A young man who was also an avid golfer found himself with a few hours to spare one afternoon. He figured if he hurried and played very fast, he could get in nine holes before he had to head home. Just as he was about to tee off an old gentleman shuffled onto the tee and asked if he could accompany the young man as he was golfing alone. Not being able to say no, he allowed the old gent to join him.

To his surprise the old man played fairly quickly. He didn’t hit the ball far, but plodded along consistently and didn’t waste much time. Finally, they reached the 9th fairway and the young man found himself with a tough shot. There was a large pine tree right in front of his ball – and directly between his ball and the green.

After several minutes of debating how to hit the shot the old man finally said, “You know, when I was your age I’d effortlessly hit the ball right over that tree.”

With that challenge placed before him, the youngster swung hard, hit the ball up, right smack into the top of the tree trunk and it thudded back on the ground not a foot from where it had originally lay.

The old man offered one more comment,

“Of course, when I was your age that pine tree was only three feet tall.”

The last cartoon of ‘mad golfer’ uploaded by johnny-automatic was drawn by Fougasse.Cyyril Kenneth Bird, pen name Fougasse (17 December 1887, London – 11 June 1965, London) was a British cartoonist best known for his editorship of Punch magazine and his World War II warning propaganda posters. He also designed many posters for the London Underground. Since 2009 his cartoon of a butler carrying a tray has been used to illustrate the front page of British Airways’ First Class menus, continuing an association with the airline which goes back to the 1930s when Fougasse penned advertising posters for BA’s forerunner, Imperial Airways.
