The Start of the Crazy-ness
Now Playing: Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2005
You may see all this Madden stuff on this site, but every play of Madden is starting to become agonizing to me. Winning by 80+ points on a regular basis gets boring, so that game's over with for me for now. I'm on to Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2005, an excellent golf game. The commentators are hilarious and there are almost too many things to do in this game. I only wish for more playable golfers (Ernie Els, Phil Mickelson), more courses (Augusta, Pinehurst No. 2, Shinnecock, Oakmont), and the game to resemble the PGA Tour in its scoring... why does it take -40 to win a tournament? Some players don't get -40 in a season. I'm going to Tiger-proof some of these courses until they don't resemble golf courses anymore, and then play my own tournaments, so hopefully the difficulty is real.
Speaking of golf, Tiger Woods may be the best golfer in the world, but Sunday at the U.S. Open proved even at his best he's not that much better than everyone else, like he used to be. A birdie at #17 may have forced a playoff. Instead, he three-putted for bogey. I bet he wins the British Open, with a strong challenge from my favorite golfer, Ernie Els, who I hope wins.
Jason Gore? Don't get excited about this guy. He had three good rounds. Put him on the PGA Tour for a year and he'll be shooting +14's on easier courses. The number to remember with him is not 0, or even par through three rounds, but #818, his ranking in the world coming into the U.S. Open. I doubt he ever gets that "close" to winning a major again- and a tie for 49th isn't that close, either.
