I've always wondered what it is the essence that makes for a good golfer?

Is it something that can be communicated and understood to Perlers at large? Are there dozens of think tanks being funded by black military budgets racing to discover this? Is Ton Hospel really just a quantum computer running Perl NAN?

Can this essence be generalized to non-specific programming and problem solving? AI inference engines? Easy Bake Oven Non-Secular Holiday Turkey recipes?

Or is there something inherently irrational or unfathomable about the whole golfing process, and therefore the mindset that excells at it? (And by extrapolation, something we'd rather not know for fear of becoming too much like "them"?)

    [marto]: hey Corion, good weekend?
    [Corion]: marto: Yeah, even though I didn't write any code :)
    [Corion]: But at least I have a plan of action to move the site to https, played some (free!) VR games with friends and watched the plans for the next German Perl workshop progress ;)
    [Corion]: AltSpace VR is amazingly good - highly polished and with some of the games you get for free what you'd pay EUR 20 or EUR 40 otherwise
    [Corion]: But maybe it's also due to that I play with friends, which makes a game more enjoyable anyway ;)
