Play Golf in your browser

May 23, 2007

What must be one of the coolest sites I’ve seen in a long time allows you to play a round of golf from within your browser and has the potential to eat up hours of your day.

San Francisco based Word Golf Tour offers the world’s first photo-realistic online golf experience. WGT enables multiple players to explore famous courses simultaneously and sparks competition with tournament play and real-life prizes.

Anyone can play for free, registration is painless and you up and playing in a couple of minutes. You choose your club for each hole and move your mouse up over the club to start your swing. Once released, you need to click as close as possible to the blue line to take your shot.

This site has massive potential. I’d invest in it! Future updates have promise of a full multi-player experience. Can you imagine playing a full 18 hole round of golf with your mates from around the world right from within your browser. At last, you don’t all have to own a console or the same version of Tiger Woods Golf.



Why did I not think of that?

I seem to always have something in my mouth. Anything from pens, bottle caps, pieces of plastic etc. When playing a round of golf, I often find myself with my golf tee in my mouth. I’ve never given the taste much thought until now that is…

Flavoured golf tees…

US inventors John Packes and Ramon Peralta have come up a product line called Tasty Golf Tees in various flavours including mint, cherry, strawberry, and grape.

Mint is the strongest-tasting flavour in the range.

“It will knock out the foulest of cigar, beer breath within five seconds,” Packes of Norwalk, Connecticut, said on Tuesday.

Packes said they came up with the idea while walking along the fairway one day and noticing that many golfers popped a tee in their mouth as they headed to the next hole or waited to tee up.

Tasty Golf Tees, which cost about 25 cents each, are made from uncoated wood, which is sanitized and flavoured. They look and play like regular wooden golf tees.
