You left out the most important rule of honor in golf;
calling a penalty on yourself when you commit an error.
I, like most golfers or contesters, do it for the sheer
pleasure of the game and doing it by the rules is just
part of the routine. Contesting is no different. In both,
at least for most of us, the primary contest is with
yourself and as the bard once said, "To your own self be true."
