Instead of posting the scores for the individual holes, it might be
interesting to have a virtual competitor, let's call him BoB (Best of
Breed) whose entry consists of the leading solutions for each hole.
Then, if BoB is the leader, the people lying behind him will be aware
that they aren't optimal on at least one hole, but they won't be given
the huge clue as to which hole it is.
