 ACCOLADE AND PRODIGY FORM THE PRODIGY NETWORK GOLF TOUR FEATURING JACK NICKLAUS GOLF AND COURSE DESIGN: SIGNATURE EDITION(TM)
 SAN JOSE, Calif., May 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Accolade and the PRODIGY Service have jointly announced the formation of the PRODIGY Network Golf Tour in conjunction with the PRODIGY online computer service and Accolade's newest golf simulation, Jack Nicklaus Golf & Course Design: Signature Edition. The new Custom Choice feature will be offered from the PRODIGY service beginning in June. The more than one and a half million members of the PRODIGY service will be able to access the Network Golf Tour for an additional $7.95 per month in addition to their regular service fee.
 Each month PRODIGY members may compete in either an "open" tournament with up to 149 other PRODIGY service members or in an "invitational" tournament, where they can create their own competitive field of four to 32 players. Members will be able to download a different golf course and play 18 holes off-line at their convenience using Accolade's Jack Nicklaus Golf & Course Design: Signature Edition computer golf game. When they have completed their round they will then upload their scores back on to the PRODIGY service. A "Clubhouse bulletin board" will provide the rules, upcoming tournament schedules, and a way to contact the "Club Pro" with questions.
 Jack Nicklaus Golf & Course Design: Signature Edition is the only 256 color VGA course designer currently on the market. Players may "create" their own golfers and may design their own golf courses utilizing the sophisticated yet intuitive interface. Realistic golfer images and sounds, as well as customizable terrain features, make the Signature Edition a "must have" for computer golf fans. For those golfers who prefer to turn on the computer and play immediately, two Jack Nicklaus designed courses have been included in the game, English Turn in Louisiana and Sherwood Country Club in California. Play against a field of computer generated players, other human players, or the Golden Bear himself in a single round or up to a five round tournament.
 PRODIGY Service Start-up kits are available at over 15,000 retail stores nationwide. PRODIGY maintains a toll-free information number (800-PRODIGY) to help located stores that sell the kits.
 Jack Nicklaus Golf & Course Design: Signature Edition is currently available at a suggested retail price of $69.95 and may be purchased at local software retailers or direct from Accolade by calling 800-245-7744.
