Three friends were playing a round of golf one Saturday. A priest, a doctor, and an engineer.

After a couple of holes, they noticed how slowly the group ahead of them was moving, and flagged down the grounds keeper when he happened by. They asked him if there was someone who could get the slow players moving faster.

The grounds keeper apologized, and explained that the slow foursome were former firemen, all blind. They heroically saved the course's clubhouse from burning to the ground five years ago, but lost their eyesight in the process.

In appreciation, the club has given them free memberships to play whenever they wanted.

Oh, good heavens exclaimed the priest. I will dedicate all this month's masses to the four.

I'm embarrassed said the doctor; I know two highly skilled ophthalmologists who might be able to help them. I'll give them a call immediately.

But the engineer said, Why don't they play at night?
