Links 2003 scores an impressive double-eagle with a real-time swing and 3D golfers.

Superb real-time swing mechanics; high-poly 3D player models; exceptional ball physics; course designer; enhanced online options

Only four pros featured; pre-recorded comments don't always jive; static water; no tournament commentary

And there was Keith Pullin thinking Americans knew nothing about golf

Hugely improved graphics ; New real-time swing ; Variable weather during round ; Huge amount of tourneys in single and multiplayer

Back at the top of the leaderboard
