Shortly after the Pope had apologized to the Nation of Israel for the
treatment of Jews by the Catholic Church over the years, Ehud Barak, the
leader of Israel, sent back a message to the College of Cardinals. The
proposal was for a friendly game of golf to be played between the two
leaders or their representatives to show the friendship and ecumenical
spirit shared by the Catholic and Jewish faiths. The Pope met with his
College of Cardinals to discuss the proposal.
"Your Holiness," said one of the Cardinals, "Mr. Barak wants to challenge
you to a game of golf to show that you are old and unable to compete I am
afraid that this would tarnish our image to the world."
The Pope thought about this and as he had never held a golf club in his life
asked, "Don't we have a Cardinal to represent me?"
"None that plays golf very well," a Cardinal replied. "But," he added,
"there is a man named Jack Nicklaus, an American golfer who is a devout
Catholic. We can offer to make him a Cardinal, then ask him to play
Mr.Barak as your personal representative. In addition to showing our spirit
of co-operation, we'll also win the match."
Everyone agreed it was a great idea. The call was made. Of course,
Nicklaus was honored and agreed to play as a representative of the Pope.
The day after the match, Nicklaus reported to the Vatican to inform the Pope
of the result. "I have some good news and some bad news, Your Holiness,"
said the golfer.
"Tell me the good news, Cardinal Nicklaus," said the Pope.
"Well, Your Holiness, I don't like to brag, but even though I've played some
pretty terrific rounds of golf in my life, this was the best I have ever
played, by far. I must have been inspired from above. My drives were long
and true, my irons were accurate and purposeful, and my putting was perfect.
With all due respect, my play was truly miraculous."
"How can there be bad news?" the Pope asked.
Nicklaus sighed, "I lost to Rabbi Tiger Woods by three strokes."
