The pompous club pro was challenged to a round of golf by
one of the less experienced members for a prize of £100.
The pro, smiling to himself, immediately took up the
challenge, “but,” said his partner, “as long as you agree that
I can have two ‘geronimos’.” Not knowing what these were,
but confident in his own ability, the club pro agrees. At the
end of the round, the other members are astonished to see
the pro handing over £100.
“We can’t believe it” they said. “What happened?”
“Well, I was just swinging my club down for the first hole,
when my partner grabs me by the bollocks and shouts
‘geronimo’.” Imagine trying to play the next 17 holes,
waiting for the second one.”
