I have a very old MS Windows program "Golf Digest Scorecard", released by Parsons Technology.  I've used it for a LONG time and have rounds stored in it going back around 20 years.  A thousand plus rounds, with hole by hole scores, putts, GIR, etc.  

It's time to move on to better score tracking tools, but I can't get the data out of the program.  There's no 'export' function and no way to list the detail data in a way that it can be copied.  I've tried looking at the data files with various text and hex editors, but can't make sense of it.  Parsons Technology is long out of business. (I think the owner was Bob Parsons, now head of PGX clubs...)

Anyone else use the program?  Any ideas on how to extract my data?  Bob...are you out there?

Golf Digest abandoned the program many years ago.  Even if they were responsive to inquiries, I doubt that they'd help.  Hell, half of their articles are on non-golf topics - like cigars or NFL.  Most of the other half are thinly disguised advertisements for equipment or casinos & resorts.
