About a year-and-a-half ago, I posted about getting my best-ever score in Vs. Golf in MAME: 16 under par.
Since then, I've kept playing and have gotten back to that score and near it quite a few times. But 18 under eluded me. I'd always have one or two bad shots that kept me from reaching it.
I also started playing the Women's Vs. Golf ROM as well. If anything, I think the course is trickier. Part of that might be due to unfamiliarity with it. But it did help me practice and get better overall.
Today, after playing a decent round in Men's Golf, I played the Women's version again. I was doing quite well. No bogies. One par, but an Eagle made up for it. After 13 holes, I was 13 under:
Another par though set me back. But I made it up with another Eagle at 16:
Then I had another par at 17. Even with a Birdie at 18, the best I could do would be 17 under...
But 18 was another par 5... and I Eagled it:
Resulting in a final of 18 under!
Finally! I managed to shoot 18 under in Vs. Golf! And on a course I'm less familiar with, too! My final score was 55. This is only one stroke less than my previous best, because that was a par 72. But I'll still take it!
I kind of wish I'd recorded it - but I play this so often, I never do. I never intentionally set out to attempt 18 under. I'm not after records or anything like that. This is strictly for fun.
Now then... anyone for 20 under?
(It does make me wonder if a decent port of this could be made on the 2600. Maybe with bus-stuffing?)
