It was a sunny morning, a little before 8:00 a.m. on the first hole of a busy course, and Tom was beginning his pre-shot routine visualizing the upcoming shot when a piercing voice came over the clubhouse loudspeaker.
“Would the gentleman on the women’s tee back up to the men’s tee, please.”
Tom could feel every eye on the course looking at him. Still deep in his routine, seemingly impervious to the interruption, Tom continued, waggling his club and looking down his target line.
Again the voice came, “Would the man on the women’s tee back up to the men’s tee, please!”
Tom simply ignored the guy and kept concentrating, when once more the man yelled, emphatically, “Would the man on the women’s tee back up to the men’s tee, please!”
Tom finally stopped, turned, cupped his hands and shouted back.
“Would the jerk with the microphone kindly keep quiet and let me play my second shot!”
