Golfing coincidence

My apologies for being lax in my promised postings. I may have to change from Sundays for my contributions as I keep running out of time near the end of the weekend. No, it is not because I have been playing golf, either :)

Tired of being a golf widow, my first wife took up the game and wound up playing with me on a country course one day. I hit my drive way off into the rough, behind a barn. She came over to take a look, surveyed the situation, and suggested that if I opened both barn doors I could hit my ball straight through the barn to the green.

This seemed to be an excellent idea, I complimented her for her suggestion, then opened the doors and stepped up to the ball. I swung and made great contact. Unfortunately, the ball was off line, careened off the door frame, hit the wife in the head and killed her.

Years went by, and I finally remarried. This time I married a fellow golfer. Incredibly, the same situation occurred. I was in the rough behind the same barn. My new wife took a look at my ball and the lie. She suggested that I could make the green if he opened both barn doors and hit through the barn.

"No way," I replied. "I can't do that."

"Why not?" she asked.

I responded, "The last time I did that something terrible happened."

"What?" she asked.

I answered, "I got a double bogey."
