Years ago, a famous golfer, was invited by the king of Saudi Arabia, to play in a golf tournament. He accepted the invitation and the king flew his private jet over to the United States to pick up the pro. They played golf for several days, and enjoyed a good time. As the golfer was getting on the plane to return the United States, the king stopped him and said,
"I want to give you a gift for coming all this way and making this time so special. Anything you want. What could I get you?"

Such the gentleman, the golfer replied, "Oh please; don't get me anything. You've been such a gracious host. I've had a wonderful time.
I couldn't ask for anything more."

The king was adamant. He said, "No I insist on giving you something so you will always remember your journey to our country."

When the golfer realize that the king was resolute, he said, "Okay, fine. I collect golf clubs. Why don't you get me a golf club?"

He boarded the plane, and on his flight back home, he couldn't help but wonder what kind of golf club the king would give him. He imagined that it might be a solid gold putter, with his name engraved on it, or one encrusted with rubies and diamonds. The more he thought about it, the more excited he got,
as the King was rich from oil.

When the golfer got back home, he watched the mail daily to see if his new golf club had come yet. Much to his dismay, after several weeks he was disappointed, and figured the King had forgotten all about him, as the King has many other duties.

Finally after several more weeks, he had received a letter from the King, which he wondered, where was his golf club, the King must be sending a letter of apology, When he opened the certified letter, the King did indeed apologize for the delay, but told the golfer to rest assured he found him the perfect golf club.
Attached to the letter, was a deed in his name to a 500 acre golf club.

Sometimes people think "BIGGER" than you do!
