Conclusion: Outlaw Golf is what sideline amateur golfers have been waiting for. Simon & Schuster has put together a great golf game that actually has pretty impressive physics and realism.

After all, the slower pace of the sport just isn't all that appealing to video game fanatics who want instant action.
