All of them scored 11 pars.  The rest of the plays were either eagles, birdies or bogeys.

PRIME NUMBERS

Prime numbers have captured the hearts of many mathematicians for centuries.  During 18th century, mathematician Christian Goldbach (1690-1764) wrote to Leonhard Euler that he believed it could be shown that every even integer greater than 2 is the sum of 2 primes.  For example, 30 = 23+7 and  36 = 13+23.  Until now, this conjecture has neither been proved or disproved.
