All of a sudden I heard a cry for help. A little man stood by the water dressed in an ancient tweed suit. He begged me to retrieve his favorite club from the water. 'Thank ya lad,' he said in a thick Scottish accent, 'I'm Angus MacGilvrey, and I must repay you. How about a round of golf?' I wasn't in a mood for any more torture, but something about him was irresistible. As we teed off, I expected him to dish out divots with his old golf clubs, but he promptly whacked the daylights out of the ball. My jaw hung ajar ...”
