A golfer hit his ball into a ravine. When he finally got down the gully and found his ball his buddies couldn’t see him for all the trees. They heard `whack, whack, whack’ a pause then `whack, whack, whack, whack’ and finally the ball came flying out of the woods.
When they got to the green and were counting up their scores his buddies asked, “How many strokes did it take you to get out of there?”
The golfer who was in the woods answered, “three”.
His buddy looked at him quizzically and replied, “I heard seven.”
His reply was, “Four of them were echoes.”
