“Why did Tarzan spend so much time on the golf course?"/"He was perfecting his swing.”

Tarzan (a fictional character) usually swings in the jungle, but a golf riddle is:

Q: Why did Tarzan spend so much time on the golf course?
A: He was perfecting his swing.



Wikipedia: Tarzan
Tarzan (John Clayton, Viscount Greystoke) is a fictional character, an archetypal feral child raised in the African jungle by the Mangani great apes; he later experiences civilization only to largely reject it and return to the wild as a heroic adventurer. Created by Edgar Rice Burroughs, Tarzan first appeared in the novel Tarzan of the Apes (magazine publication 1912, book publication 1914), and subsequently in 25 sequels, several authorized books by other authors, and innumerable works in other media, both authorized and unauthorized.
