Limerick, A day on the golf course

Finger misbehaving

Source

Say, " What "?

Tiger on the green swinging high

Crowd cheering as ball almost reaches the sky

The crowd whispers in disbelief

Ball in coral reef

Camera captures Tiger giving the third finger hi-five

Please let me interject, I love Tiger, and i hope he regains his God given skill. He is the best..

Sport limerick poetry. I think you have something here. Now if he could hit the ball down the line, it would be much easier to continue to rhyme

Since I know nothing about golf or Tiger Woods, I shall say I enjoyed your limerick. Thanks for the fun read.

This is a very funny limerick Ruby. Poor Tiger maybe one day he'll be back on track again.

Up, funny, and awesome Ruby. LOL This was great. Poor Tiger has lost his stripes! I wish he would capture that past glory. He is and will always be the reason that I watch golf. I do wish him well. I want to see him win a major, but Karma is a "bitty." Great work as always dear Ruby. Take care AE

Good job! :-) deserves a reward:

Was out playing golf just for fun

With Father O’Toole in the sun

When club from hand burst

Hit priest as he cursed

And he hit his first holy one
