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.
