The Jack Nicklaus series of golf games adds several new features and updates. A new MouseMeter control system is designed to feel more like real golf than the more traditional 2-click and 3-click systems which are also provided. The action can be viewed from anywhere on the course, although some views are more suited to action replays than actually taking aim or playing a shot. Ball lies are not always flat in this edition.

This one offers nine Jack Nicklaus courses and a specially created course for the game that is similar to Pebble Beach, as well as an online facility to download over 100 more. CBS' Gary McCord provides a running commentary. The course includes a number of 3D golfers that the player controls. The course designer, a mainstay of the series, has been enhanced for this version.
