"Catch 'Ya On The Back Nine"
Imagine, playing golf on more than 20 of the world's greatest courses, all on the same day. Start in Scotland, on the challenging links of St. Andrews. Next, how about Georgia, and the lush greens of Augusta? End your day on the shores of the Pacific Ocean, at beautiful Pebble Beach. And, when you've mastered the world's best, no problem, simply design your own "soon-to-be" classics.
