I never played this one before today but it looks really good, and it's much better than Golf. I played through once. Lots of bogeys on the front 9. Then by the back 9 I had adjusted to the game with only like 4 bogeys and even 1 Birdie!

 

I'm not gonna but a pic up yet since I'm not done with this one. Had to break out the EMU for it though.

 

+13

My first score is an 87. Putting will really kill you in this game.

 

In case anyone didn't know, you can save your progress and come back to it in this game, so you don't have to play all 18 holes in one shot.

You I noticed that when I OB'd my 1st shot on the 1st hole. Restarted and got to choose continue or new game.

So far I got to play most of a round last night, I was at +16 after 9, I think I'll start over and use what I have learned. Also, I suck at golf games in general. This was fun though, so I'll be back hard at it tonight.

75. Suck it.

 

In case anyone doesn't know this, selecting "slow", "medium", or "fast" for shot speed has a direct impact on your shot distance.

Handy information to have. I was wondering about that but thought it was more then likely just a option to help you set your own pace on the shots.

 

Oh, and I will not be taking you up on your "suck it" challenge, but I'll beat 75 if it means I never get to sleep again! ;) Its on!

Let the sucking commence!

 

70

 

I OWNED! the front 9. Got my 1st chip in. Then I almost chipped Hole 8 for an Eagle too. The Triple Bogey on 16 was from a shot drive that ended up in the water. I've gotta really work on that back 9.

Oddly enough the putting works well for me. I drive pretty well too, but the set-up shots are killing me. I'm having a hard time working out distance for certain shots in tighter places. I would be doing alot better if I could work out the scale of this game. I'm getting better, and I'll get there, you just watch.

Anything 60yds or less can hurt me. Especially if I'm in the ruff. I can't really gadge how much power to give the thing. When I am out say 140yds in the ruff I just go to a stick about 2 stronger. Also go up a club for hitting into strong winds (6mph+).

Edit out the old score and leave in the new to avoid double posting.

 

This is clearly the kind of game I'll have to take one game at a time. I still don't think real golf is this frustrating. Hey, but the scores are getting better.

 

The new score is 77 @+5. :D

What can I say, I really like this game :) Reminds me of Hal's Hole-In-One Golf on the SNES and I played the hound out of that game. I think this score could safely keep the lead so now maybe I can get to that 7800 HSC :cool:
