Pebble Beach

An older golfer playing as a single at Pebble Beach was teamed with a twosome. After a few holes, the twosome finally asked why he was playing such a beautiful golf course by himself. He replied that he and his wife had played the course every year for over 20 years but this year she had passed away. He said he had decided to keep the tee time in her memory. The twosome commented that they thought certainly someone would have been willing to take her spot. “So did I,” the older golfer said, “but they all wanted to go to the funeral.”
