The Benefit of the Doubt

Andra, one of the old school, had been employed as a caddie for a full month by a distinguished visitor to the Fife coast.  Anxious to improve his game during his stay, the visitor had announced that if and when he 'broke' 100, Andra was to have a bottle of whisky to mark the occasion.

Despite the player's efforts and all that Andra could do by way of advice and encouragement, the final round on the final day had arrived with the 100 still unbroken.  Play proceeded in a tense atmosphere until, standing on the 18th tee, a moderate 5 was all that was required to achieve the elusive 99 - and the equally elusive bottle.

To Andra's dismay however, the over-anxious player was short of the green in 3.  The critical moment had come; but it was too much for the nervous visitor, and his 98th stroke finished 15 yards beyond the hole.

But Andra was equal to the occasion.  Rushing forward to pick up the ball he shouted excitedly "Weill don, Sir!  Ye've dune it.  Oniebody wad gie ye that yin."
