A relaxing day at the golf course is not without its incidents. The man may not be a good friend because this is the first time he is telling George about the time he met his wife, but then again, men in the 70s rarely talk about such things. However, the man never uses the words 'my wife' anywhere. Is he married to this police officer? Or, even worse, is he having an affair with her? He seems older than George so perhaps this love was an unrequited one stretching back to the 50s. Were there even women police officers back then? Women police were only fully integrated into the police force in 1973, and had limited powers of arrest until then. This means that the man has met this woman recently. He must be divorced and has a new object of his desires, a policewoman.
The man may have an eye for the ladies, but his golf course etiquette is something to be desired. What sort of self respecting golfer would recount a shocking end to an anecdote during his opponents tee shot? It's just not done! George should be furious and demand he take that shot again. The grin on the man's face shows that he is fully aware that the end to this anecdote will surprise George, therefore he should have said it after George's shot, that way they could have enjoyed it together as they walked up the fairway. This man could even be ejected from the course.
On closer inspection, this course must be public. Just look at how overgrown the grass is around the tee area as George places his tee in the ground. This must be the only course the man is allowed on in a 20 mile radius of Wimbledon. Banned for life, for bad timing.
