Golf...........a gentlemans game..or is it?

Suppose you were playing in the club championship tournament finals and the match was halved at the end of 17 holes. You had the honor and hit your ball a modest two hundred fifty yards to the middle of the fairway, leaving a simple six iron to the pin. Your opponent then hits his ball, lofting it deep into the woods to the right of the fairway.
Being the golfing gentleman that you are, you help your opponent look for his ball. Just before the permitted five-minute search period ends, your opponent says: "Go ahead and hit your second shot and if I don't find it in time, I'll concede the match."


You hit your ball, landing it on the green, stopping about ten feet from the pin. About the time your ball comes to rest, you hear your opponent exclaim from deep in the woods: "I found it!" The second sound you hear is a click, the sound of a club striking a ball and the ball comes sailing out of the woods and lands on the green, stopping no more than six inches from the hole.


Now here is the ethical dilemma:




















Do you pull the cheating fool's ball out of your pocket and confront him with it or do you keep your mouth shut

Who said I was a gentleman?

Come to think of it, who ever accused me of being a golfer?

Kick the ball to the back of the green before he comes out of the woods...

I think your penalize a stroke for hitting the ball before the the permitted five minute time search ended.

Depends if and what how big a bet you have on the game. ( think Bond and Goldfinger)

I believe it was Mark Twain who, when asked whether or not he played golf, stated: " You are better off taking a walk in the woods than chasing a little white ball around a cow pasture". I'm not sure that this is the exact quote, but close enough to convey Twain's feelings about the game of golf! Hit 'em long and accurately!

I think the quote was the golf is "a good walk spoiled by a little white ball". Also the title of a very entertaining book.

When I played for awhile, most folks helped me find my club, not the ball. Is there a 5 min rule for that?
