G-d and the Golfer

The Rabbi was an avid golfer and played at every opportunity. He was so addicted to the game that if he didn't play he would get withdrawal symptoms.

Moses said, "Look how terrible – a Jew on Yom Kippur.And a Rabbi besides!" G-d replied, "Watch, I'm going toteach him a lesson."
