Moshe admitted that he wasn’t much of a betting man, but agreed to the terms. The second guy won the remaining sixteen holes with ease. Moshe then paid him £80.
As they were walking off the 18th Green, the second guy was busy counting his £80. He then confessed to Moshe that he was the Pro at a neighbouring course and liked to pick on suckers.
Moshe immediately revealed that he was the local Rabbi.

The Pro said, “Is there anything I can do to make it up to you?”
Moshe said, “Well, you could come to my Synagogue on Sunday and make a donation. And if you want to bring your Mother and Father along with you, I’ll marry them.”
