Try Wii! They have both 9 hole plays and 18 hole plays... the simulation is quite like the real game... except that you get to do your swings in the comfort of an airconditioned room and on a comfy sofa with perhaps a can of Coke in your other hand...

Not too bad for a small break. Smile

In any case, wish you a speedy recovery! I once hurt my wrist and still I went to the range and it hurt very badly... so it pays to be obedient and stay at home and really recover before you do any swings / hits. Wink

It takes some practice but amazingly, it works. The speed of the controller and arc at which you swing it affects the putt. Ok, so it's not perfect but it's way better than I had expected Smile

Glad to help. Let me know if you end up sending the ball 100m into the virtual bushes Smile

Yup, if you do your swings and putts proper as you would in a proper game, you would enjoy the Wii session more... at least that's how it works for me.

And I thought I was the only one who enjoys playing golf on Wii... didn't know got 知音 here also... really love this forum. I love you
