Let the Ball Lie

The little boy said to his father,
I wish I could drive the ball farther.
    He said to his son,
    By time we are done,
Your ball will "lie" just past the others.

    Is this for the golf limerick contest? I really like this, Ray! My grandfather is big into golfing and used to take me to play with him a lot when I was growing up; I recall being absolutely terrible at it, but it sure is a fun sport regardless! I enjoyed your limerick this morning. :)
