Golf Joke: Play It As It Lies

I got this joke from a friend:

Two long-time golfing buddies got to the course one day and decided that this day they would play the ball where it lies, no matter what.

On the 14th hole, one of them sliced his ball and it ended up on the concrete cart path. As he reached down to pick up and move his ball, his friend said, “Wait a minute! We agreed that we would not improve our lies! Remember? No matter what!”

“But I’m entitled to relief—it’s in the rules of golf!”

“Our agreement supersedes the rules. Not allowed.”
So, in disgust, the man went to the cart and grabbed a club. He stood near his ball and took a few practice swings, each time scraping the club on the pavement and sending out showers of sparks.

Finally, he took his shot. The club hit the cement again and sparks went flying, but his ball shot straight toward the green, landed softly, and rolled to a stop no more than two inches from the cup.

“Great shot!” his friend exclaimed. “What club did you use?”
“Your 7 iron.” came the reply.
