Each spring, a special golf cruise makes its way across the Atlantic, delivering avid golfers from bustling New York to tour the bucolic courses of the old country, culminating in a pilgrimage to St. Andrews, Scotland. Arrangements are made for them to compete with their British cousins, loosely matched as to ability, which is how the yankee tourists Cyril Grooley, Gladstone Bott and Bradbury Fisher came to play England's own Rollo Podmarsh and Colonel Bodger.
Now each of these gentlemen had a new trick intended to improve his game! One wore a neck brace to keep him from moving his head. One was using wraparound amber sunglasses to help him keep his eye on the ball. Another golfer had a specially annotated rulebook, with niggling arguments to fit almost any golfing situation. One of them had scientific tools to measure wind and distance, and finally, one had a shiny new lucky niblick.
The spectacle of the tournament was a painful one, for they went 'round the course with scores of: 102, 106, 108, 110 and (sadly) 114 strokes. But certain brave young members of the club formed a sort of spectators gallery, and adopted pet names for each of the competitors: Slosher, Hacker, Gravedigger, Poker and Skippy.
Can you determine, from the five clues below, how the five duffers scored in the tournament, their individual gimmicks, and the affectionate nickname given to each?
