Old Joe was playing golf all alone as he stood on the 150-yard par-3 9th hole. Just as Joe approached the tee a voice from the heavens said, “Joe, use a new ball.”
Joe looked around and not a soul was in view, so he put a brand new ball on the tee.
Before he could take his shot the same voice called, “Joe, take a practice swing.”
Joe obeyed and swung as hard as he could, slightly off balance at the end.
The same voice called one last time, “Joe, use that old ball.”
