One day the Worshipful Past Master and the newest Entered Apprentice go golfing. The EA is really good and Worshipful Master is just giving him tips. They are on hole 8 and there is a tree in the way and the Worshipful Master says, “When I was your age, I would hit the ball right over that tree.”
So, the Entered Apprentice hits the ball and it bumps against the tree and lands not to far from where it started.
“Of course,” added the Worshipful Master, “when I was your age, the tree was only 3 feet tall.”
