Arnold Palmer is playing in a big tournament and comes to a par 3 which measures 235 yards. After some deliberation, he takes out his 3 iron and smashes the ball 20 feet over the pin and backs it up to within 3 feet of the hole. A fan in the crowd came up to him and said, “Mr. Palmer, how do you make the ball back up like that with a 3 iron?”
Arnold replied, “Do you have a 3 iron?”
The fan said, “Yes sir, I do.”
“How far do you hit it?”
“About 160 yards,” came the answer.
Arnold calmly said, “What the heck do you want it to back up for?”
