Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods are playing the 16th hole when Tiger’s tee shot lands behind a huge, 100-foot fir tree. Tiger looks at Jack and says, “How would you play this one? Lay up and take the extra stroke?”
Jack replies, “When I was your age, I’d just play right over this tree.”
Tiger, not wanting to be shown up by his historic rival, proceeds to hit the ball high, but not high enough. It bounces off the tree and lands out of bounds. Tiger, really ticked at this point, asks Jack how he ever hit a ball over that tree.
Jack replied, “Well, when I was your age, that tree was only three feet tall.”
