Stevie Wonder and Jack Nicklaus are in a bar.
Nicklaus: How is the singing career going?
Wonder : Not too bad, the latest album has gone into the top 10 so all in all I think it's pretty good. By the way, how's the golf?
Nicklaus: Not too bad, I'm not winning as much as I used to, but I'm still making a bit of money. I've had some problems with my swing but I think I've got that right now.
Wonder : I always find that when my swing goes wrong I need to stop playing for a while and not think about it, then the next time I play it seems to be all right.
Nicklaus: You play golf?
Wonder : Oh, yes, I've been playing for years.
Nicklaus: But...you're blind, how can you play golf if you're blind?
Wonder : I get my caddy to stand in the middle of the fairway and call to me. I listen for the sound of his voice and play the ball towards him, then when I get to where the ball lands the caddy moves to the green or farther down the fairway and again I play the ball towards his voice.
Nicklaus: But how do you putt?
Wonder : I get my caddy to lean down in front of the hole and call to me with his head on the ground and I just play the ball towards his voice.
Nicklaus: What's your handicap?
Wonder : Well, I play off scratch.
Nicklaus: [Incredulous] We've got to play a round sometime.
Wonder : Well, people don't take me seriously so I only play for money, and actually I never play for less than $100,000 a hole.
Nicklaus: [Thinks about it for a bit] OK, I'm game for that, when would you like to play?
Wonder: Pick a night.
