  1. Hit or Miss

    Hit or Miss is a solitaire card game which uses a deck of 52 playing cards. It is one of the unique solitaire card games because the player only deals the cards one at a time. As the player deals the cards, he says the words "ace, two, three, four... nine, ten, jack, queen, king, ace..." and so on. To make things clearer, the player says "ace" when dealing the first card, "two" when dealing the second card, and so on until "king" for the thirteenth card, "ace" again for the fourteenth, and the process continues. The player can continue counting after the cards in the deck are used up, recollected and redealt. Once the word uttered matches the rank of the card dealt, the card is "hit" and it is discarded. Cards that are "hit" no longer take further part in the game. The player can continue the game and redeal the cards as long as there are cards "hit." But when all the remaining cards are dealt twice in succession without a "hit," the game is lost. Therefore, all cards must be discarded in order for the game to be won.

  3. William McGirt:

    The rough is now so wet, it's really juicy and it's going nowhere. It's coming out just so dead. The fairways, it's kind of hit or miss, i had a couple of times where I had a bunch of mud on it and a couple of times where it was borderline casual (water) but I didn't get relief. I heard we're playing it up in the fourth round, so at least they're thinking smart in that respect.
