An Embarrassing Moment...

It was a sunny  morning, a little before 8:00 am , on the first Hole of a
busy course, and I was  beginning my pre-shot routine, visualizing my
upcoming shot when a piercing  voice came over the club house loud speaker,

'Would  the gentleman  on the woman's tee back up to the men's tee please!'

I could feel every  eye on the course looking at me. I was still deep in
my routine,  seemingly impervious to the interruption.  Again  the announcement,

'Would  the man on the woman's tee kindly back up to the men's tee.'  

I simply ignored  the guy and kept concentrating, when once more, the man

 'Would the  man on the woman's tee back up to the men's tee, please!' 

I  finally stopped, turned, cupped my hands and shouted back 
 'Would  the Asshole  with the microphone please be quiet and let me play
my second shot.'
