GOLF ON A COMPUTER
It Was High-Tech
Chinese Water Torture
1 played a golf game last night in my upstairs den. Actually, that den
has been partially converted to a computer room by my son. Bill is the proud
owner of a new "Mac" color computer with a big hard drive. He is interested
in computer aided design, draw pro
grams and paint programs. The way
he has gone at it the past few nights,
he may become an even bigger com
puter nut than I am.
Bill is also a golfer, so it was
not surprising that one of the pro
grams he purchased was PGA Golf,
a full-color adaptation of the game
on a two dimensional screen. 1 have
played one or two of the arcade golf
games and spent 30 minutes or so with another computer adaptation. None
of these games provided the icast stimulation to play them again. They were
more like pinball machines than the game of golf.
PGA Golf Is A Winner
The PGA Golf program is something else altogether. It does nothing to
improve or even evaluate your golf swing, but it certainly challenges your
knowledge of how to play the shots. In addition, it tests you on some really
great golf courses.
When 1 arrived home last night Bill had departed to play in his dart
league and lelt me a note to go upstairs and play with his new toy. 1 was
more than happy to oblige. I booted his hard disk with the intention of
browsing his software and fooling around with one of die design programs.
However, my eye was drawn to the golf program.
What the heck. It probably was just another arcade game. I decided 1
would check it out to see. You can imagine my surprise when 1 lound that
you could choose to play the TPC at Sawgrass, the PGA West, or die TPC at
Avenel. Since my brother lives on the TPC at Sawgrass at Jacksonville
Beach and I was fortunate enough to play the course w hen visiting him
once, I naturally choose it as ihe course to play. I also gallcricd the second
Tournament Players Championship at Sawgrass, so I am still familiar with
how the professionals handled the course.
A False Start
Ihe computer asked me if I wanted to practice a few shots on die prac
tice range or go straight to the course. 1 made a bad decision to go to the
course. The computer then asked if 1 wanted to play the blue or white tees,
and 1 opted foi the whites, i was tlieii treated to a helicopter fly-by of the
lirst hole from the green back to the lee box. Then I saw a birds eye view,
two dimensional, of the entire hole complete with the length of the hole and
a quote by Frcdy Couples which advised that I aim my drive to the right side
of the fairway for the best approach to the green.
The next visual was a shot of me standing on the first tec looking down
the first fairway. An info box recommended 1 use a driver and when I
clicked the "dnve" button, the golfer took a 120% backswing and hit a
boomerang slice into the woods.
OK, I'll Take A Lesson
At that point, I changed my mind, went back to the "Pro Shop" button
and asked to hit a few shots on the practice range. There I learned that I
could control the length of the backswing on a scale from zero to 120% by
clicking at the desired point on the scale to stop the backswing and start the
forward swing. To hit a straight ball I had to click a third lime as the club
made contact with the ball. If I clicked loo early, I got a draw or a hook de
pending on how early 1 clicked on the down swing. Likewise, a late hil pro
duced a fade or slice.
While practicing on the hil scale, I also noticed a wind indicator which
gave both speed and direction of the wind. Also, I learned that I could tap
another button to adjust my aim and stance. After a little practice, a fairly
standard draw and faJc were possible. Standard unless I forgol to notice an
occasional "gusi" of wi'id.
Back To The Course
When I weni back to ihe first tec, 1 had resolved to play only the first
three holes and get back to more important things. 1 bogicd the first hole and
birdied die second. Ah haa! Then I tripled ihe third and ihe battle was on. I
played all IX holes and shot an 86 which, believe il or not, was the exact
score 1 recorded when 1 played the TPC at Sawgrass. 1 rationalized at ihe
time that there was more wind thai day than when the pros had played the
course. 1 also fell cheated in thai the water hazards did not allow you to re
cover your ball very easily. I mean, how can you concentrate when you arc
playing with your last new ball?
I vowed at the time, that I would bring that course to its knees the next
time I was in Florida. Last night I also vowed to do the same thing when I
get home tonight
I am out of here!
