Summary: It's just a game; or is it?
Nine holes at Langston on a bright summer morning.
It’s a rare pleasure and Ducky accepts, although he wonders what the real motive might be for the invitation.
He and Fornell aren’t terribly close, and the jovial greeting of “Morning, Ducky” feels slightly intrusive.
Ducky puts that aside, focusing on the game. Their skills are evenly matched, although Fornell is prone to hooding the club.
By the final hole, Ducky has solved the mystery.
“Jethro’s idea?” he asks, to which Fornell nods, before sinking his last putt.
Ducky finds himself smiling only slightly bitterly.
Gibbs is a golf widower again.
