John Daly's Prostroke Golf

A Pretty Good Tee Shot

Emulating those better than you is one path to success. John Daly’s ProStroke Golf, however, does the opposite and still produces a fun game. Tiger Woods the man has proven to be anything but invincible, and there’s always room for competition in the video game realm. John Daly proves that there’s more than one way to hit a golf ball, and ProStroke Golf tees off with a strong drive but misses some shots here and there on its way to the hole.

The gameplay basis for the game is the aptly named ProStroke controls. These let you control aspects of your swing and ball placement by moving your feet, shifting your weight, and changing your club face. This differs from Tiger in that putting spin on the ball, choosing specialty punch or lob shots, and applying draw or fade are engineered directly from how you use the ProStroke controls – as opposed to jamming on a button for mid-air spin in Tiger, for example. Moreover, shifting your weight via the left analog stick as you swing your club with the right analog is a big part of getting more power out of your shots in ProStroke and adds another gameplay input, which is cool.
