Tee and Sympathy

Old golfing joke: Fred got home from his Sunday round of golf later than normal and very tired. "Bad day at the course?" his wife asked. "Everything was going fine," he said. "Then Harry had a heart attack and died on the 10th tee." "Oh, that's awful!" she cried. "You're not kidding," he replied. "For the whole back nine it was hit the ball, drag Harry, hit the ball, drag Harry." Well, too bad for Harry, ´cause he'll miss the PGA Tour's latest Valley pit stop, the Fry's Electronics Open. A $5 million purse and first-place prize of $900,000 puts the measly $30 admission fee into perspective.
