It means that the PGAS code needed to be changed from this:
$data{ $hole->[1] }->{golfer} !~ /$golfer/

to this:
$data{ $hole->[1] }->{golfer} !~ /\Q$golfer\E/

Since "BoB (Best of Breed - referees)" has some metacharacters in it, it
wasn't matching correctly.  Wow, that's the first time I've touched PGAS
code in a while.  It feels good to have it be that stable.

I thankfully got out of the Sand Trap but have had no time to put together a
postorder solution since I've been at a wedding and then a conference
( since Saturday.  I doubt I'll have time to play
anymore this round.  Maybe a last second attempt to get on the leaderboard,
but I'm doubtful.  Perl Golf just seems to keep slipping too far down on my
list of things to do.
