Joke: Waiting For The Second Gotcha


A golf pro dragged himself into the clubhouse looking as though he’d just escaped a tornado.

—“What’s wrong?” a woman asked.

—“I just lost a game to Jerry,” the pro said.

—“What? But Jerry’s the worst player I’ve ever seen. How in the world could he have beaten you?”

—“He tricked me,” the pro said. “On the first tee, he asked for a handicap. I told him he could have 30, 40, 50 strokes—any handicap he wanted. He said, ‘Just give me two gotchas.’”

—“What’s a gotcha?” asked the woman.

—“That’s what I wanted to know,” the pro said. Jerry said, “You’ll see.” Then, as I was teeing off, just as I had my club poised, he screamed out “Gotcha!”

—“I can guess what happened,” the woman said.

–“Sure,” the pro said. “The scream threw me off, and I missed the ball completely.”

—“Understandable,” the woman said. “But still, that’s only one swing. How did he win the game?”

—The pro answered, “You try swinging at a golf ball all day while waiting for that second ‘gotcha!‘”
