Even if you wouldn't know a sand wedge from a cricket bat, it makes no difference in PGA Golf Tour. If you're still unconvinced, track down an independent dealer and get yourself a play test. You'll be hooked in no time.
PGA Tour Golf is without question the best golf sim on the market and shows how the excellent attention to detail in graphics, playability and overall gameplay shows that Electronic Arts have got golf sims off to a tee.
It's the break in play as you grapple with the graph that spoils things a bit. But only a very teensy bit, though. Anyway, the rest of the game's so smart that even this niggle doesn't drop PGA below ZERO Hero status.
The added sound effects - birds chirping in the trees, crowds 'oohhing' when you narrowly miss a putt and cheering wildly when you birdie a hole - just serve to emphasise how much attention has been paid to detail and lend further weight to the theory that PGA Tour Golf is the best golf game currently available.

In practically every respect, PGA is excellent - the game itself is very addictive indeed, with some excellent graphics and sound, and the number of options will have any golf freak foaming at the mouth!
If you like a quick round now and then, but your golfing skills leave you horrendously over par at the end of the day, then try a round of PGA Tour. It could allow you to enjoy the game with a fraction of the frustration encountered on the greens - not to mention the saved expense of clubs being damaged when hurled into the bunker in a temper!
A jolly good golfing sim which is not only easy to play and true to life, but rather scrumptiously playable too.
Amiga Joker HIT. Nicht genug damit, daß PGA Tour Golf auf seinem Gebiet alles bisher dagewesene in den Schatten stellt - die Umsetzung ist sogar noch ein kleines Quentchen besser als das PC-Original! ... Und da PGA Tour Golf Anfänger ebenso zu fesseln vermag wie erfahrene Profis, ist es keineswegs eine Übertreibung zu behaupten, daß der Amiga nun wieder um einen Klassiker reicher ist! Der Amiga Joker meint: PGA Tour Golf ist die neue Nr. 1 im grünen Sport!
Golf is certainly not my favourite sport but I rally enjoyed playing this, underlying the possibility that it could appeal to non golf fans.
Spät, aber gründlich: Jetzt ist sie da, die Amiga-Version des "Sportspiels des Jahres 1990". Und das Warten hat sich gelohnt: "PGA Tour Golf" bietet bei dieser Umsetzung alle Tugenden des PC-Originals.
All in all, it's still a golf game, but EA's PGA Tour Golf would be a first choice on my list of sports sims.
