    What Doyler said . LOL. Also the King of the new version is IrishKing1916. 

    P.S. He's now 104 years old as well(2020 minus 1916) so...

    Hahaha , Kind words all, not quite that old KP lol and Clem you are still the only Irishman to acknowledge my being King, if only just to humour me, and just to shut me up really lol

    Thank you Sidersbest for the acknowledgment lol , i now feel old, its been a long trip since the days of Bali Hai CTTH and a set of starter clubs, there were no choices lol

    A trailblazer award may be just getting a little carried away though , but again , thank you

    As much as I appreiate WGTChamp for being there when we need him (and it seems he has always been there.)   Vetting says 2015 is his start date 


    And as to the age of Irish King 1916 only he knows for sure maybe he is maybe he ain't 104 . I know at 89 my Dad played several rounds and had fun last year.
