I guess what I am really suggesting is that a "Hot 10" replace the top ten on the home page of the site to take some emphasis off being in the top 10. It would be nice to have different courses...

No TD has to do it. But that doesn't mean that whiny 55-year-olds who want a trophy/plastic won't insist on it. When the 50+ division is already small and the TD caves in and splits it, it seems kind...

You are the one overly concerned with the comma, not me. Whose expectations are referred to in the par definition? They are the TD's...

That you would have to explain this at this point is surreal. Par may be many different things to many different people, but apparently only one thinks that it can be a birdie.

3. Not tasty to beavers.

Climate change, weather trend - whatever the...
