Today's pro golf stars take their places on your tabletop with the new 2017-18 Pro Season cards for HISTORY MAKER GOLF Championship Golf Board Game, available November 6th!
The 2017-18 pro season had a fresh, new look to it with almost a dozen first-time winners. A four-week stretch in October and November saw an uninterrupted string of golfers (Armour, Cantlay, Kizzire and Cook) winning their first pro tour event. Six other golfers also celebrated their first tour win later in the year. At season's end, the 2018 money list included a new name, too: golf phenom Bryson DeChambeau, in just the second full year of his pro career, joined established pros Thomas, Johnson, Rose and Koepka in clearing the seven million dollar mark in tour winnings for the year.
But the season's biggest story wasn't about a new golfer. Rather, it was the amazing comeback of one of the most storied names in the history of pro golf, Tiger Woods. Golf's dominant pro in the '90s and early 2000's, Woods returned to the sport's forefront with solid play all year and a season-ending Tour Championship win in Georgia on September 23rd, his 80th tour victory. For the year, he finished eighth on the money list, and his resurgence was one of the biggest sports talk topics of the autumn.
With the new 2017-18 Pro Season cards for HISTORY MAKER GOLF, you get cards for these stars and many, many more: every golfer who had a top ten finish during the season is carded for this set, as are many who did not, over 150 golfers in all.
Each golfer's card, whether star or on-the-fringe, is thoughtfully crafted to re-create his real-life golf game on your tabletop, capturing abilities (or deficiencies) in shot-making, distance and accuracy, putting, short game and everything else! Big hitters like McIlroy and Finau will get that extra distance from the tee, while Na and Furyk will sometimes frustrate you by coming up short. Pros like Moore and Horschel will consistently set themselves up for birdie opportunities with accurate shots from the tee box, while Stenson and Spieth will be among your most lethal with an iron. Other golfers will have to be more creative, though! Guys like Mickelson and Reed will tap into superior scrambling skills to get themselves out of trouble brought on by (not infrequent) errant shots. It's sometimes a struggle for someone like Summerhays to get to the green, but then you'll often watch him hole an unbelievable putt from long range to earn birdies the hard way.
Each golfer is also rated for his actual tournament standing, which when used in conjunction with HMG's "Tournament Mode" will ensure that the top golfers show up most often as your final round contenders, while allowing for the rest of the field to have their shot as well. Intangibles will factor in, adding a fun element of unpredictability and surprise to your schedule of events. Experience comes into play, too—you'll see journeyman pros rise to the occasion by drawing on veteran "smarts," while the highly-touted young stars occasionally make "rookie mistakes!" It's all part of the fun of tabletop pro golf, with the 2017-18 Pro Season cards for HISTORY MAKER GOLF.
You'll have a great time watching your season unfold, as the world of pro golf comes alive on your game table with this realistic collection of cards representing today's pro golf scene. Who'll win top honors at your Pro Open, or the green jacket at your version of Augusta? You'll experience tension and drama as your season winds down, with the top guys on your money list scrambling to move up a notch or two, or hanging on for dear life!
Or, line up your favorite golfers and conduct match play, stroke play, skins games, short-form tournaments, or just enjoy a leisurely round of golf with your favorite golf star on one of HMG's many available pro courses. However you choose to play, we know you'll have a ball!
