One afternoon, Ian found a ransom note slipped under his front door.
The ransom note read: “Bring $50,000 to the 17th hole of your country club tomorrow at 11am tomorrow if you ever want to see your wife alive again”.
So, not wanting anything bad to happen to his wife, the following day, Ian went to the bank and drew out $35,000 in cash, which he added to the $15,000 he kept in the safe in the house. He wrapped the bundle of cash in brown paper and headed out to his country club.
By the time he arrived at the designated meeting spot, the 17th hole, the time was almost 2pm.
As Ian approached the 17th green, a masked man stepped out from behind a bush and demanded to know why he was three hours late and what took him so long.
“Give me a break”, Ian said, pointing to his scorecard. “I’m a 27 handicap”.
