This is an implementation of the Golf and Putt-Putt solitaire card games for up
to four players.  Wikipedia considers this one of the solitaire games most
affected by skill.  This implementation has undo/redo functionality.  

The object of the game is to leave the fewest cards on the tableau as possible. 
If the discard pile is empty, discard any exposed card or a card from the stock.
 Thereafter, discard exposed cards that are one rank above or below the rank of
the last discard.  If stuck, click the stock to start a new sequence.  An ace =
1.  A hole is finished when there are no valid discards and the stock is empty
or all face-up cards have been discarded.  The score for a hole is the number of
face-up cards remaining minus cards remaining in the stock.  There are nine
holes in a game.  Each hole is par 5.The lowest 25 totals of nine holes are
saved. Up to four players may play each hole.  Match play is supported.

There are three difficulty levels:
   Strict - No card can be placed on a King.  First discard is from the stock.
   Default - Queens can be placed on Kings.  First discard
is chosen by the player.
   PuttPutt - Same as default but you can also rollover between Kings and Aces.

'1-4' changes the number of players.  'S, D, or P' selects the difficulty level,
'N' starts a new game, 'H' shows help, 'A' is about, 'LEFT' is undo, 'RIGHT' is
redo, 'R' shows saved scores, and 'Q' quits.  Alternately, you can use the menus
for these actions.

Please contact me at the above e-mail address if you find any bugs or want
additional features.  Have fun!
