Over the course of the round the older gentleman and young man traded stories of past rounds, good shots and poor shots, and simply put, had a grand old time.
At the 14th, just as the older gentleman was lining up to tee off, he witnessed a funeral procession going past the golf course. Very quietly he stopped, hung his head and said a quiet prayer.
The young man stood astonished at what he had just witnessed and asked the old man, “That was the most beautiful thing I have ever witnessed, but may I ask just why you did what you did?”
After a moment of silence, the older gentleman replied, “Well we were married for 40 years you know.”
