The Pope met with the College of Cardinals to discuss a proposal from Shimon Peres, the former leader of Israel.
“Your Holiness,” said one of the Cardinals, “Mr. Peres wants to determine whether Jews or Catholics are superior by challenging you to a golf match.”
The Pope was greatly disturbed as he had never held a golf club in his life.
“Not to worry,” said the Cardinal, “we’ll call America and talk to Ben Crenshaw. We’ll make him a Cardinal; he can play Shimon Peres… We can’t lose!”
Everyone agreed it was a good idea. The call was made and of course, Ben was honored and agreed to play. The day after the match, Crenshaw reported to the Vatican to inform the Pope of his success in the match.
“I came in second, Your Holiness,” Crenshaw said.
“Second!?!” exclaimed the surprised Pope. “You came in second to Shimon Peres?!”
“No,” Crenshaw said. “Second to Rabbi Spieth.”
