Haunted clubs

Internationally renowned psychic medium and all round good egg, Derek Acorah, was fitted for new Golf Clubs earlier in the week.

Having befriended Jimmy Tarbuck, despite the ex-comic not being dead or a celebrity, Acorah got into celebrity golf, and discovered that he had a flair for it, completing each course in a score that would make Tiger Woods envious.

Having been accused of cheating, due to only having a sand wedge, and still getting a hole in one on a par four, Acorah realised that if he was to compete in the pro-celebrity golf tournament in Augusta later this year, he would need to at least appear to be taking it seriously.

Although only five feet ten in height, his huge personality initially led the golf-club fitters to believe he was over eight feet tall. A quick word in the fitter's ear from his dear departed grandmother soon put them right, and he was fitted with a full set of custom made golf clubs.

Although they are very good clubs, made with a tungsten alloy and Barbados rubber grips, with perfectly angled heads, the new clubs have made Acorah's game much worse.

"We have since discovered," said Tarbuck, "that the sand wedge was haunted by Ben Hogan. You'd have thought that Derek would have picked up on that."

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
