A man was getting ready to tee-off on the first hole when a second guy showed up and asked if he could join him. The first hesitated, stating that he usually played alone but agreed to let the second man join him.
Since they were even after the first couple of holes, the second guy asked, “Hey, since we’re about evenly matched, how about we play for five bucks a hole?”
The first fellow said that he was accustomed to playing alone and didn’t like to bet, but after the other man insisted, he agreed to the terms.
The second guy proceeded to win the rest of the holes and as they were walking off of the eighteenth hole, the second man chuckles and admitted that he was a pro at a neighboring golf course. As he was counting his money, he mentioned how he liked to take advantage of suckers.
The first man sheepishly let the golf pro know that he was the parish priest at the local Catholic Church, upon which the second fellow became flustered and apologetic and offered to give the Priest back his money.
The priest responded, “Oh no. You won fair and square and I was foolish to bet with you. You keep your winnings.”
The pro said, “Well, is there anything I can do to make it up to you?”
The priest thought for a moment and said, “Well, you could come to Mass on Sunday and make a donation. Then, if you bring your mother and father by after Mass, I’ll marry them for you.”
