When I wrote the script in order to detect the aliens among 
us, I simply discarded a golfer's worst Y-index and averaged the 
rest.  Prior to doing this Markko had evaded detection.

By the way, the script is using the updated book.xml that includes 
this month's data.  Not surprisingly, nothing has changed.  The usual 
aliens, the usual suspects.
