All hail Cixelsyd!

Ic23b ties for the best round, escapes the Costanza.

My trendline isn't pretty. If there had been another round I would've scored -1.

Well done Cixelsyd!

Ufez, you're 2/4ths of the way to the Costanza Grand Slam for the year. I believe in you.

Thanks for the thanks .. And thanks to rcade for organizing the pool.

(Noticing that my round scores are almost exactly like the first 4 holes of my normal golf game)

I am stunned and deeply impressed that cixel routinely birdies the third hole, which is a killer Par 5.

Ah yes, comfortable mediocrity once again. The old saying is that the nail that sticks up feels the hammer. Perhaps a better ability to pick results will make me the hammer. Of course, by that time we will be using screws instead of nails. Thanks, rcade, for another fun time. The pick 'ems are one of the better parts of SpoFi.
