Taking a day off, Jesus and St. Peter decide to play golf. At one part of the course, they came up to a short shot over a shallow pond. St Peter tees up first. He stops and thinks for a moment and then states, "I'm going to use a six iron." St. Peter swings and lands a beautiful shot about three feet away from the cup.

Jesus tees up next. He ponders the shot, and then declares, "Jack Nicholas would use a seven iron." He takes his seven iron, pulls back, and swings. The ball goes too high in the air and lands in the middle of the pond. Jesus casually walks on the water, retrieves his ball, and tees up. He swings and, again, his shot ends up in the pond. "Why don't you use a six iron?" suggests St. Peter.

"No!" retorts Jesus. "Jack Nicholas would use a seven!"

This goes on for several shots - swing, splash, walk on water, recover ball, and tee up again. By this time, other golfers have caught up to Jesus and St. Peter. After watching Jesus walk on water several times to retrieve his ball one baffled golfer turns to St. Peter and asks, "Who does that guy think he is? Jesus Christ?"

"No," replies St. Peter. "Jack Nicholas."
