Fred, playing as a single at St. Andrews, was paired up with a twosome.
After a few holes, the twosome finally asked why he was playing such a beautiful course by himself.
He replied that he and his wife had played the course every year for more than 20 years, but she had passed away earlier in the year, and he kept 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,” he said. “But they all wanted to go to the funeral.”
