Maccabi Golf Day
Monash Country Club
Thursday 25 November 1999
Anyone who has ever played or watched golf knows that all golfers aspire to score at each hole, results with an avian name such as birdie, eagle and albatross.

Playing in the annual Maccabi golf day at Monash Country Club, Dr Tony Wasserman, a dentist from Chatswood, introduced a term to the golfing lexicon which is normally confined to cricket he scored a duck.

Standing on the second tee with his three partners, Dr Wasserman was being humorously sledged by the eight members of the following two groups who were becoming impatient with the slow play ahead. Dr Wasserman, a left hander, took aim and let fly with an unusual shot on this picturesque hole. Normally this shot would be referred to as a worm burner if it happened on dry land; however, in this instance there was a small lake in front of the tee. Dr Wasserman’s tee shot bounced across the surface of the water and slammed into a duck peacefully sitting on the waters edge. The ball disappeared, being caught up amongst the feathers of the duck and then dropping into the lake as it struggled after being slam ducked.

As the four on the tee and the eight waiting to hit off commiserated the plight of the stuffed duck a voice from the group said:

“Can someone please say Kadish for the duck so that we get on with the game?”

From the minyan established on the banks of the lake came:

“Yisgadal v’yis gaduck….”
