Super Mario Competes with Tiger Woods

Golf is not only a lot of fun on a green field but also a very intense sport for those who understand it. So, it is no wonder that one of the most famous video game heroes also tries his hand at golf. So far, Super Mario has also been active as an Olympic athlete, a racer and a tennis player, but now he is also turning it up in golf: Super Rush. The first test shows that the video game is an overall success.

Super Mario is an ace on the Nintendo Switch, so even Tiger Woods has something to be jealous of. The game is the first sequel to the Mario Golf series, but this time, Nintendo has spared no innovations and realism is at the forefront today. The realistic style affects the essential elements, such as the physics or roll behaviour and the terrain. The wind, the power of the strokes, the club choice and its material also influence the game.

No Big Experiment but Lots of Fun

All stroke variants known and loved in golf are also available in Mario Golf: Super Rush. Even golf professionals can let off steam here. On the other hand, beginners are not overwhelmed by the requirements and should quickly find their way around. Moreover, you can learn a few tricks over time and a par, a birdie or an eagle become child’s play. It really sounds like a lot of fun to play this game.

Finally, Mario Golf: Super Rush also has numerous elements of an artillery game hidden within itself. For example, instead of golf balls, gamers can also shoot bombs to their opponents’ direction or throw something while running. That is even more fun to play with a joy con than with a traditional controller. Overall, Mario Golf: Super Rush does not dare to experiment, but still delivers a high-quality gameplay. The only criticism is the number of available golf courses, they could be a bit more extensive.

Painful Rehabilitation

It is unknown whether the former best player in the world Tiger Woods will also try this golf game. But right now, the superstar is primarily focused on his recovery. Recently, in his first interview after his serious car accident, he talked about a painful rehabilitation. He is currently not thinking of continuing his remarkable career as his focus is to be able to walk independently again.

Tiger Woods, 45, is currently doing exercises every day and is entirely focused on his physical therapy. It’s not his first attempt to get back on his feet after an injury. Tiger Woods has already suffered several painful setbacks and over the past few years, he has had five operations on his back and five procedures on his left knee. Experts have already written the star off several times, but so far, he has always come back. Only the future will tell whether the accident ended his career or whether Tiger Woods can celebrate a successful return to the golf course.
