Thomas replied, "Actually, I've found many women I wanted to marry, but when I bring them home to meet my parents, my mother doesn't like them."
His friend thinks for a moment and says, "I've got the perfect solution, just find a girl who's just like your mother."
A few months later they meet again and his friend says, "Did you find the perfect girl? Did your mother like her?"
With a frown on his face, Thomas answers, "Yes, I found the perfect girl. She was just like my mother. You were right, my mother liked her very much."
The friend said, "Then what's the problem?"
Thomas replied, "My father doesn't like her."
Seeing the ladies, the Pro approached them and asked: "How did your game go?
“Great! I actually had 25 riders.”
The Pro was a bit perplexed not knowing what a "Rider" was.
The second lady quickly chimed in and said that she had a very good round as well with 16 riders.
The third lady then said that her round was average and that she only had 10 riders.
The fourth lady admitted that she played the worst round of the day and that she only had 2 riders all day long.
The Pro was completely confused about what the term "rider" meant. But, he didn't want to look dumb so he wished the ladies well and then left.
Passing the proshop he asked the kid at the desk, "Hey, can you tell me what these ladies are talking about when they refer to "Riders"?"
The kid didn’t even look up and said..."A 'Rider" is when you hit a shot long enough to ride on the golf cart to your ball.
