in a crash. Two ambulances come

and take the man and his son to

different hospitals. Son goes

into the operating room, the

doctor looks at him and says, 'I

can't operate on this boy. He's

my son.' How's that possible?

(beat)

The clock's ticking boys...

Tin Cup begins bouncing a ball on the face of his wedge.

EARL:

Father didn't sneak back in,

right? He's still at the other

hospital?

TIN CUP:

It ain't 'Star Trek,' Earl. No

one beamed him aboard.

That eliminates the most plausible theory in their minds.

The men think harder.

EARL:

Well... if the father married the

son's daughter -

TIN CUP:

It's a family riddle, Earl. Think

clean thoughts.

4.

The regulars puzzle some more.

CLINT:

Give us a little hint.

MOLLY (O.S.)

The doctor's a woman.

All heads turn to take in the arrival of:

3 MOLLY GRISWOLD 3

Standing just inside the door -- she's a fresh-faced

beauty in her early thirties, and she's got all new

everything the sport of golf requires: new bag, new

clubs, new shoes, new clothes, new visor... she looks

like she stepped out of an ad in Golf Digest. And all

the men are asking themselves the same question: what's

she doing here? The silence invites Molly to supply the

riddle's answer.

MOLLY:

The doctor is the son's mother.

Feminists pose the riddle to

reveal how deeply our sexual

stereotypes run.

(directly to Tin Cup)

I take it you're a feminist?

Tin Cup misses the ball he's been bouncing, breaking the

spell. The regulars wait for Tin Cup's response.

TIN CUP:

Ma'am, I've been called a lot of

things -- but no one's ever

saddled me with that one.

MOLLY:

You might try being saddled

sometime -- the smell of leather,

the sting of a whip...
