Tips

 

RJ:

It's possible to "putt" in from the fairway/main screen.

KNOW YOUR CLUBS & the distances they hit.

On your 3rd button press when hitting the ball, if you stop the gauge to the left or right of the "sweet spot", the ball will be hit accordingly. This can be used to hook around trees, hazards, etc.

I'll start: 84 (+12)

 

Mostly pars, with a few birdies and bogeys, until about the 14-16 holes, where I really fell apart.

I'll venture to say Slayer has this contest in the bag already...

 

So far my best is +6, stayed even through the 1st third of the course, did quite well on the water holes.

 

I'll be the first to offer some tips:

Hey Slayer, how 'bout some tips from the (current) master?

I think I can get to par; it would take a lot of practice to get much below. Plus a good stretch of favorable winds. :)

Oh, I am so in for this. I was awesome at it back in the day, but I have not played it for some time! This post here to remind me.

-9 ??? HOLY SH-T!!!

 

I cant for the life of me get less than +6 but I'll keep trying. I already threw the controller once... :x

 

So I had to take a break w/ some Hogan's Alley... :D

I don't think I can better -9. Of course, I didn't think I could do that in the first place, so who knows? :ponder:

 

Can't remember exactly, but I think I bogeyed one hole, double bogeyed one hole, eagled two, parred maybe 5 or 6, and birdied the rest, about 8. :o

 

I didn't play perfectly, hit 3 or 4 sand bunkers, went in the water 2 or 3 times, went out of bounds 2 or 3 times, but I recovered well.

+75

 

I'm so bad at this game it's just funny. I had to play though since I own the cart.

 

1 par, 3 bogeys, 3 double bogeys, and the rest was much worse.

I may have set a record for out-of-bounds violations.

How's come you ONLY post pictures on some of your scores?

 

I've been watching the NES gaming thread for many, many weeks and this seems very odd.

Probably because it doesn't make much sense to "proof" an "also ran" score.

Well yeah!

 

As much as you like to brag and show off when you really do get a score, I'd figure that you wouldn't be able to get a screen shot posted fast enough.

 

I don't believe that you got that score or any other score that you didn't post a picture. Your rep as a honest person is well known on this site and others.

 

I also know for a fact that some of the scores you have posted in these threads are due to leeching and other methods that score more points.

 

You see, I know people at TG that know that one of the scores you posted here is due to cheating. That score is on tape and you can't lie out of that one.

 

Nuff said! :cool:

Can't believe you think his shady tactics are ok and going to the private messages is the answer.
