Ah, golf humor.

Michelle Wie wrote a piece for the latest GolfDigest in which she described the time Gary Player asked her to punch him.

The result was fantastic.

"I was at another event with Gary Player. Out of the blue he says, 'Michelle, hit me in the stomach.' I didn't want to punch him, so I kind of poke him instead. He says, 'No, I want you to really hit me!' He widens his stance and clenches his stomach. Now I really hit him. I'm no fighter, but I hit him as hard as I could. It hurt my hand. It didn't faze him. He pointed to his stomach and said, "A thousand sit-ups a day" and kept walking."

The thought of Wie poking Player in the stomach might be even funnier than what actually eventually happened.

Wie tells another great story about a time Natalie Gulbis almost brought her to tears and how her dream forever was to play in the Masters.

A great read.
