Stevie Wonder and Bubba Watson cross paths at a fund raiser. Bubba Watson turns to Stevie Wonder and asks, “How’s the singing career going” Steve Wonder replies, “Not too bad! How’s the golf” Bubba Watson replies, “Not too bad. I’ve had some problems with my swing, but I think I’ve got that right now.” Steve Wonder says, “I always find that when my swing goes wrong, I need to stop playing for a while and not think about it. Then, the next time I play, it seems to be all right.”
Bubba Watson says, “You play golf?” “Oh, yes, I’ve been playing for years.” Stevie Wonder says.
And Bubba Watson asks, “But, you’re blind. How can you play golf if you’re blind”
Steve Wonder replies, “I get my caddie to stand in the middle of the fairway and call to me. I listen for the sound of his voice and play the ball towards him. Then, when I get to where the ball lands, the caddie moves to the green or farther down the fairway and again I play the ball towards his voice.”
“But, how do you putt” asks Bubba Watson.
“Well,” replies Steve Wonder, “I get my caddie to lean down in front of the hold and call to me with his head on the ground and I just play the ball towards his voice.”
Bubba Watson then asks, “What’s your handicap”
Steve Wonder says, “Well, I’m a scratch golfer.”
Bubba Watson, incredulous, says to Steve Wonder, “We’ve got to play a round sometime.”
Steve Wonder replies, “Well, people don’t take me seriously, so I only play for money, and never play for less then $10,000 a hole.”
Bubba Watson thinks about it and says, “OK, I’m game for that. When would you like to play”
Steve Wonder says, “Pick a night!”
