Not sure if anyone has seen this yet or not, but I didn't see it when I searched the forum. I found this the other day and its a pretty good online game.

It's a flash game, but its much better than nearly any flash game I've seen before. Its in Beta now, so I'm wondering if it will become a pay service once it leaves beta.

I've played the stroke play at Bethpage Black a couple times and ended up +6 both times, from the red tees. The putting is pretty hard to judge out passed 10'. I think my best put has been 15' or so to this point, although I did have a chip in from 30'.

I found the tutorials pretty invaluable if anyone is having problems figuring out the controls.

I haven't played any golf simulators in probably 10 years but this one seems pretty good, especially for an online one.

my best putt was 8 foot and ya the short-mid putts suck you have a bar from 0-30 foot and guess how hard to hit it it sucks i hit like 93% of grens but still end up at +11 at the end of the round

The game has sure come a long way since the last post.  There are now seven 18 hole courses available for stroke play (although 1 course you have to pay greens fees and is a ripoff).

Give it a try if you're looking for a realistic golf game.

Anyone play this game?  I have an account that I haven't used in ~ 2yrs.  I logged on tonight to see what courses they have and was impressed with the line-up.

Hi All,

Does anyone play this game at all?

I've recently downloaded it and it's surprisingly difficult (in comparison to tiger woods on the xbox/playstation), and there's a few decent courses on it like St Andrews and Celtic Manor to name a couple.

I only ask as there's a bit where you can create a club and play against each other, so it would be interesting playing against other actual golfers.

Regards,

Rob

I just started playing. I am not a fan of the constant need to buy credits on the games to get better equipment. I know this is the current trend but it is also the reason I quit playing video games. I just clicked over to amateur... I don't know how much longer I will keep playing it...

Anyone in here play world golf tour? The best free online golf game I've played. If anyone knows of a better one let me know. If you play WGT my screen name is the same, CMartis.

I played it but found the putting so annoyingly difficult that I've never finished 9 consecutive holes.

    • I have a “low” launch angle too, and my driver is 9.5°. If you don’t mind my asking what shaft do you have in your driver? You may not need a 16° Driver, it could be the shaft has too high of a flex point. But I’ve heard of higher lofted drivers though they can be hard to come by these days.
    • This season I was consistently shooting in the high 80s. Played some of my best golf and I am really happy with how straight I am hitting the ball right now. The ONE thing I would change in my game is simply the height of my drives.    I hit about a hundred balls today on trackman and with the driver I am getting average clubhead speed of 120 mph, launch angle 7 degrees, 268 yds carry. It’s bugging the hell out of me to see these low bullet balls, and despite trying all this year to deliver more loft (I’ve had a few lessons trying to fix just this issue alone), I just can’t seem to do it.  I currently play a stiff shaft Taylormade R1 set to 12 degrees loft. I’m thinking about possibly experimenting with one of those super lofted (16 degree) drivers. Has anyone ever tried this, and if so did it actually make a difference? In advance I just want to also say, yes, I agree an equipment fix in this case is a bandaid for a larger problem. But I’m also just trying to have fun with my game and if buying a higher lofted driver helps this problem, I’m happy to take it for now.  
    • Day 129.  During the workday, went to the next door room to hit some 6-iron shots;  indoors, off a mat, into a net, real balls. 
    • Day 320 Superspeed workout, then some mirror work on takeaway/backswing, and finally hit some balls with 7-iron. Hit the ball well today. Still searching for a good feel/thought to take on course for backswing piece. Current one is okay, but I think I can come up with something better.
