The ancient game of golf was well underway. In one particular foursome, the first fellow up eyed the ball. He swung his club and hooked the shot over the fence and down a road where the ball crashed through the windshield of an oncoming car. The startled driver lost control of his vehicle, whereupon it spun into a parking lot and bounced off three cars.

Racing over to the crash scene, he was relieved to find that no one was hurt. Almost immediately a policeman arrived and approached the man, who was standing next to the crashed car, again eyeing his ball.

"Just what are you going to do about this?" demanded the policeman.

"Well," the fellow replied, "the first thing I'm going to do is change my grip ..."
