Dazzling. Delightful. Intricate. That is, by far, the most beautiful of the many Roman to Decimal
solutions presented in this node IMHO. Paraphrasing
Your golf solution is like exploring a large medieval castle, surrounded
by a dark, mysterious forest, with something new and unexpected around
each corner. There are dragons to be conquered, maidens to be rescued,
and holy grails to be quested for. Lots of fun.
By comparison, my golf solutions look like a Louis-XVI castle and garden to me.
Straight, symmetric, and bright. There are wigs to be powdered,
minuets to be danced, all quite boring.
