The driver took a deep breathe and started to say, “There is less tr…”

“Now we are going to be late if you are taking this long route.  You shouldn’t have deviated from the directions I gave you.”

The driver inwardly rolled his eyes and just said, “Yes, ma’am. But I will have you there in plenty of time.” 

“You better or there will be no tip for you young man!”

The Sixth Tee

He took the driver out of his golf bag and walked to the tee box. This was the first game he had played in years and he knew he was going to be a bit rusty. He took two practice swings and addressed the ball. He swung and hit the ball. It went high and far landing just to the right on the fairway.

By the fifth green he was playing like he had never stopped. It was a great feeling for him until he took the walk around the tree before hole six. There laid a lifeless woman’s body.
