Waiting in line at the pro shop, I noticed the golf tournament on TV. "What tournament is that?" I asked innocently.

After a long, slow moment the golf pro said, "That would be the U.S. Open Golf Tournament." Something in his reply hinted that a person purporting to be a golfer, who didn't know the U.S. Open was being played, should walk away and leave the links open for a true golfer.

I took no offense, paid my money and went on to the course. And proved his point.
