A keen, but unskilled golfer plays the same course every week and has particular trouble with the water hazard on the 14th hole, losing a ball in it every time he plays that hole.
One round he decides that this process is too expensive and decides to use an old, cut-up ball instead of a fresh one out of the sleeve. He opens his bag and gets the old ball, tees it up and addresses it. Just as he starts his backswing, a mighty voice comes from on high, “USE A NEW BALL,” the voice says.
Figuring any advice from such a source should be worth following, he picks up the old ball and tees up the new one again. He prepares to start his backswing, but once again is interrupted by a voice from the sky, “TAKE A PRACTICE SWING,” the voice advises.
The man steps away from the ball and rehearses his swing. Just as he steps forward to readdress the ball, the voice speaks one final time, but this time there was a tone of defeat in the mighty voice.
“JUST USE THE OLD BALL,” it says.
