The great man himself. This is displayed when the game loads. After a few seconds the player is prompted to press the START key to begin the game
After displaying a load of licensing information and a close up of the great man himself, the game finally gets to the main menu screen
One of the options from the main menu is Game Face which allows the creation of a custom player. There's a limit of eight characters in the name though
Lots of detail on the custom players can be tweaked, clothes, hair, eyes, teeth etc. This option allows the player to create their own logo and place it on the clothing
Golf isn't just a simple game. There are six kinds of game on this screen and by scrolling down three more can be seen
There are quite a few tutorial sessions to choose from
The tutorial sessions are short animations showing how each shot is played. However there is no opportunity here for the player to practice the shot.
When playing a match the player is treated to a fly-by of the hole. This is the first hole at Pebble Beach
After each hole has been completed the score sheet is shown. A hole will be terminated automatically if the maximum number of shots allowed is exceeded
