Yep, I echo Jasper's congratulations Ton. What remains freakish is
the speed at which Ton posts a great score.

I'd also like to thank Samy. Having refereed similar sized tournaments
on my own, I know how exhausting and time consuming it is. Thanks Samy!

Here are some names I noticed playing in the fonality tournament and
their final placing from the season ending money list of 2002, as
noted in mtve's perl golf history tome:

 1   Ton Hospel             $4,384,000.00 (10/13)
 3   (-ugene van der Pijll  $3,540,000.00 (10/13)
 6   Juho Snellman          $1,264,000.00 (6/13)
 13  Jasper McCrea          $  719,600.00 (10/13)
 17  /-\ndrew Savige        $  652,400.00 (8/13)
 23  `/anick Champoux       $  468,800.00 (9/13)
 27  Honza Pazdziora        $  420,200.00 (9/13)
 35  Michael Wrenn          $  304,506.67 (8/13)
 57  Sec                    $  179,466.67 (4/13)

Ah, the good old days. This was my first round of golf for four years
and I enjoyed the little battle at the end for positions 6-9 with my
old golfing buddies pijll, Sec, and Jasper. That little competition
within a competition motivated me to put in some extra last ditch
effort. Sorry 'bout that, Jasper. It never occurred, not in my
wildest dreams that you'd never heard of mtve's big book of golf!
Your name is mentioned in it a total of 97 times.

Erm, Yes. You were the only golfer in the top ten who missed it.

And, equally fatal, (-ugene and I seemed to be the only ones who missed
using symbolic references. I sometimes admonish beginners on Perl
Monks, for example:

where I said "Symbolic references should be avoided as much as possible",
but forgot to add the caveat "except during golf tournaments".

I look forward to the winner's post mortem analysis. :-)
