Featuring the unique and critically acclaimed ProStroke control that allows players to craft and control real golf shots like never before.
Sam Torrance and Peter Kessler provide lively commentary across 12 varied and challenging courses, populated with interactive spectators to bring a rich match-day atmosphere to life.
Away from the tournaments and exhibitions gamers would expect from a golf title, the Challenge Mode offers a series of golfing trials presented by John Daly himself, as he takes players through the different disciplines of the game, from putting and approach play to the world famous Long John drive itself.
With great control and realism, you can shape your shots and bomb down the fairway just like in real golf. Beginners can hit good shots and experienced players can hit great ones!
Practice, play on your own, or play with up to three other players (human and/or computer) on a single console. Choose from a number of preset players to play as or compete against. How you fair in this mode does not count towards your Career profile statistics.
Or you can play single player, match play (two or four player) and foursome play, to hone your skills!
Career mode is the crux of the game and can be broken down into two main game modes – Challenge & Tournament.
– Challenge Mode
Take on John Daly in a series of challenges to unlock the tournament on that particular course. At the start of the game only Mystic Rock is available to play in Challenge Mode. Beating John on each course also unlocks it in Quick Game and Practice. You will challenge him in driving, putting, and approach play, pulling it all together for a great round of golf!
Each of the twelve courses has a tournament associated with it. The tournaments are unlocked once you have beaten John during the Challenge on that particular course. All tournaments use the Strokeplay scoring system and each one has an objective for you to triumph. Tournaments can last from single days to four day tournaments!
We have secured both interesting and challenging courses, designed by some of the greatest names in world golf.
Ballesteros, Faldo and Woosnam were three of the “Big Five” generation of European golfers, all born within 12 months of one another, all of whom have won majors, and made Europe competitive in the Ryder Cup.
The Shire London (only course in England designed by Ballesteros) is laid out like few other golf courses in the world. There are six par 5s, six par 4s and six par 3s, and on both the front 9 and the back 9, no two consecutive holes are the same par, with equal numbers of par 3s, 4s and 5s. This gives maximum variety, and maximum enjoyment – a core philosophy of Seve’s designs.
Hailed as one of the finest recently-built golf courses in England, Chart Hills is the British architectural debut of six times Major winner, Nick Faldo. There are 18 very distinctive holes at Charthill Hills which, collectively, demand a great variety of shot-making skills, making this a very strategic test and a real thinking man’s golf course. More than anything, Faldo wanted to design a course that would offer different challenges to different players.
We also haveThe Brabazon (Belfry) which doesn’t really need introducing. After all, it’s unique. This course has played host to more Ryder Cups than any other course on the planet – four in total. The excitement comes from playing memorable and familiar holes- there is more water on the Brabazon than just about any other inland course in the British Isles- the course has two outstanding holes, which have been popularized – the 10th and 18th.
There’s a strong connection with our title to the Ryder Cup and this is something we have planned with our release date in mind.
We are also pleased to announce that Mystic Rock, designed by the legendary Pete Dyer is also featured in the game.
