CYBERSPORTS FORE! PLAY BEGINS BY FINDING A GOLDEN TEE MACHINE.
It might not be as valuable as an American Express gold card. But for those addicted to the Golden Tee Fore! video arcade game - and you bar flies know who you are - the Players Gold Card is something they don't leave home without.
At GoldenTee.com, operated by Incredible Technologies, obtaining the card (for a $2 fee), which allows entry into nationwide tournaments and logs personal statistics for each game, is one of many features any serious cyberduffer must check out before venturing back to compete.
The most valuable link might be to the list of every establishment that has Golden Tee Fore! games on the premises. There are 592 registered in California alone. It also lists which version of the game each has. For instance, Jude Roy Bean in Simi Valley and Arkey's Tavern in Thousand Oaks have the 2002 and new 2003 versions.
GoldenTee.com also has a pro shop, where those who feel the need to succeed can buy a Bill Blass sanded ``gab'' shirt ($39.95), a sandwich bill cap ($14.95) or the Golden Tee PC version ($19.95), also developed by the game's creator, PGA golfer Peter Jacobsen.
--John Madden's jump from Fox to ABC's ``Monday Night Football'' already is paying dividends for new partner Al Michaels.
Michaels replaces Pat Summerall as the play-by-play voice on the EA Sports' 2003 version of the Madden NFL video game, which comes out this summer for the 13th year in a row.
Last year's Madden NFL 2002 sold more than 3 million copies on eight platforms.
Last week, EA Sports also began shipment of its 2002 FIFA World Cup ($39.95 for PCs and PlayStation, $49.95 for PlayStation2 and Xbox).
