Is there a way to flip the golfer's direction?

You're cursed to only hit right! 

The graphics - gorgeous. The music - fantastic.

Failed over hundred times probably, never got past the 3rd hole, don't care, love it!

If I ever get to the 4th, I'll call my parents, make them proud.

(1 edit)

I love golf games, and this one is unlike any other. I am a pretty casual gamer so this is a bit intense for me. However, even when I fail I find myself starting right back up. Definitely worth checking out!

mac port pls

golf

It's good stuff.

This might be a silly question but - can't you turn left to strike the ball from right to left??? WHAT AM I MISSING
