Graphics
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Now you can actually progress into the game itself, and you will find that as soon as the first hole has loaded up, you will be astounded by the realism of the graphics; the players look almost photo-realistic, and the scenery is superb – with many different trees, bridges, rock overhangs and cacti!.

Gameplay
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
The gameplay is simple enough – pick a club that is most suited to the place you are (Driver for a long tee shot, sand wedge playing from the sand etc), or you can just let your virtual caddy pick one for you. Then you click the mouse at the right time to get optimum power and direction, (one click to start, one click for the power, one click for the direction.

Although in this 2001 version, there is a new type of swing called “power swing”, which is more innovative. The club in your player’s hand will react according to your mouse movements. Move it backwards, and the club will go up in the air, and move it forwards, and you swing through the ball. The amount you accelerate the mouse, and any slight lateral movements will change direction, spin and power.
I have tried this method out, but I find it much too complicated – but if you are good enough and persevere this method can be very rewarding.

I'm not for games but perhaps I can try this one you are saying. Oops, let me see the minimum requirements, oh, can be, can be. Let's keep on playing... Alex
