Here are some statistics from the recent series of games:
fwp Santa........... 35 players on scoreboard
irc Christmas....... 11 players on scoreboard
fwp Get Even........ 51 players on scoreboard
TPR Base-36......... 82 players on scoreboard
TPR Secret Number...127 players on scoreboard
I'm amazed at the number of new golfers the TPR games are drawing!
All this recent golfing activity has led Stephen Turner and me to ponder: What is the history of Perl golf?
As far as I can tell, the term Perl Golf was coined by Greg Bacon here.
Here is an interesting post: Larry plays golf with himself in 1991.
If anyone has more information on the history of Perl golf, please let me know, as I am eager to write an article on it. In particular, I am interested to learn the first occurrence of an organised golf competition, similar to the TPR tournaments mentioned above.
