Just thought I would add this post just to let people know just how tough this golf course really is in real life, and so it should be in our Virtual World.
The US Open was held at for the first time at Bethpage Black in 2002. Tiger Woods won it with a 4 round total of -3.
He was the ONLY PLAYER in the tournament to post a 4 round total UNDER PAR - OK !! That just indicates how tough this golf course really is. Tiger is also one of the longest hitters on the tour. So - you cant reach the fairways off the tee - thats only the start of it, there's many more problems you're going to have to face on this brute of a course before you put any kind of reasonable score up. You cant just tee up and expect to simply hit all the fairways straight up - unrealistic. You couldnt do it in real life - you cant do it here either.
Yes - it is only a game, I realise that - but it has to be reasonably realistic, and I think they have done a great job.
Keep up the good work WGT
