Now that I know roughly the number, I divided the world's population by it to get number of people per hole and that number was... interesting.

496,125

(estimathing - 350 courses per state, which is to high, so say 90% of that give me 283,500 in the US and then thinking there is another 75% of that around the globe. sure there are a lot in the UK but its a relatively small island. I'm guessing US has the most courses, then Canada (but not many in northern Canada, then the UK, Japan, Australia then the rest of the world)

What to I win???

For some unknown reason, I kind of like @Wally Fairway  reasoning. I think his number is low, but the reasoning seems sound....... I guess? Maybe?

    • Hello and welcome to TST. What one may gain from updating clubs can vastly vary. Club head technology has certainly improved with the ability to get the ball in the air and to be a bit more forgiving than older models. The shaft plays a very important role as well, maybe even more important which is why a fitting can be very beneficial. As far as expectations…hard to say. But at the very least you’ll know you’re optimizing one area of your game by having the best irons for you. Cheers.
    • Unless you have undergone swing changes I wouldn't expect any change at all.  The lofts might be stronger which could make you think you've gained distance when you haven't. 10 year old cavity back irons of good quality aren't much different from brand new ones. Your golf doesn't improve when you get new irons unless you were playing something with the wrong shaft or clubs with little or no built-in forgiveness.
    • That’s up to the respective governments to determine. Many countries only require proof of a negative test. 
    • I am sure that it wouldn't be mandated. I don't think one should be allowed to travel internationally without proof of vaccination.
    • I heard David in FL's pool hall will begin to require passport cards beginning on Monday...             😁
