With all this rain around, if your in a cart, drive down the fairways, and try to stay out of the rough as it is still very wet in places.

Joke of the day
Stevie Wonder and Jack Nicklaus are in a bar. Nicklaus turns to Wonder and says, “How is the singing career going?” Stevie Wonder says, “Not to bad, the latest album has gone into the top 10, so all in all, it is pretty good, by the way, how is the golf?” Nicklaus replies, “Not to bad, I am not winning as much as I used to but I’m still making a bit of money. I have some problems with my swing, but I think I’ve got that right now.” I always find when my swing goes wrong I need to stop playing for a while and think about it, then the next time I play it seems to be all right,” says Stevie. “You play golf!?” asks Jack. Stevie says, “Yes, I have been playing for years.” “But I thought you were blind; how can you play if you are blind?” Jack asks. “I get my caddie to stand in the middle of the fairway and he calls 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 caddie moves to the green of farther down the fairway and again I play the ball towards his voice,” explains Stevie. But how do you putt?” Nicklaus wondered. ” Well” says Stevie, ” I get my caddie to lean down in front of the hole with his head on the ground and I just play the ball to the sound of his voice.” Nicklaus says, “What is your handicap?” ” I play off scratch,” Stevie assures Jack. Nicklaus is stunned and says to Stevie, “We must play a game sometime.” Wonder replies, “Well, people don’t take me seriously so I only play for money, and I never play for less than $100,000 a hole.” Nicklaus thinks it over and says, “Ok, I’m up for that, When would you like to play?. “I don’t care,” Wonder says, “Any night next week is okay with me.”
