Two men were golfing together one day... a very young man and his grandfather. The young man found himself with a tough shot, with a large pine tree right in front of his ball, directly between his ball and the green. After a lively debate on the best way to hit the shot, the old man finally said, "You know, when I was your age, I'd hit the ball right over that tree."

With that challenge placed before him, the grandson swung hard, hit the ball up and right smack into the top of the tree trunk. It dropped back to the ground almost exactly where it had originally lain.

Whereupon the old man said, "Of course, when I was your age, that pine tree was only three feet tall."
