Four friends - Jerry, Will, Roy, and Dan - head to a local course to enjoy 18 holes of golf. Given that all four men finish the round, and that ties can occur between players:

In how many different orders of finish (1st, 2nd, etc.)
could the four men possibly complete the round?

Here is the SOLUTION.



24 different orders are possible if each player has a different score, and another 51 possible finishes involve tie scores between players.
