Yes, doing battle with `/anick is perhaps the pinnacle of any golfer's
career. Michael, thanks for sharing that story; it was great compensation
for not having the pleasure of battling with `/anick hand-to-hand this
time around.

BTW, I've jotted down a few scrappy and informal "fundamental insights"
into this golf game at:

Please let me know of other "fundamental insights" I've missed or any
"blunderific overlooks" that I've made. I'm not sure I like the term
"fundamental insight" and I'm open to persuasion as to a better term.
[Erm, I'm a bit ashamed to admit that I was provoked into writing these
notes in response to what I perceived (perhaps incorrectly) to be an
attack on perl golfers ... which I won't stand for ;-)].
