One Fine Evening at the 19th Hole...

Stevie Wonder and Jack Nicklaus were in a bar. Nicklaus turned to Wonder and said, "How is the singing career going?"

"Not too bad," Wonder replied. "The latest album has gone into the top 10 so all in all I think it's pretty good. By the way, how's the golf?"

"Not too bad, I'm not winning as much as I used to, but I'm still making a bit of money," said Nicklaus. "I've had some problems with my swing but I think I've got that right now."

"I always find that when my swing goes wrong I need to stop playing for a while and not think about it, then the next time I play it seems to be all right."

"You play golf?" Nicklaus asked.

"Oh, yes," said Stevie. "I've been playing for years."

"But... you're blind, how can you play golf if you're blind?"

Stevie replied, "I get my caddy to stand in the middle of the fairway and call to me. I listen for the sound of his voice and play the ball towards him, then when I get to where the ball lands the caddy moves to the green or farther down the fairway and again I play the ball towards his voice."

"But how do you putt?" asked Nicklaus.

"Well," said Stevie, "I get my caddy to lean down in front of the hole and call to me with his head on the ground and I just play the ball towards his voice."

"What's your handicap?"

Stevie said, "Well, I play off scratch."

Nicklaus is incredulous, and he said to Stevie, "We've got to play a round sometime."

Wonder replied, "Well, people don't take me seriously so I only play for money, and actually I never play for less than $100,000 a hole."

Nicklaus thought about it and said, "OK. I'm game for that, when would you like to play?"

Stevie answered, "Pick a night."
