From BBC News Online:
In PowerPlay Golf, each green has two holes instead of one, with a black flag denoting a more difficult pin placing and a white flag the easier one.
Over nine holes, players have to make three powerplays where they have to go for the harder option.
(…) Other innovations being considered include placing a 30-foot diameter circle around the last black flag hole. Players can win bonus points for landing shots within the circle but will lose points for misses.
It sounds fun, but it doesn’t seem like the sort of people who watch golf would be interested by something like this; either they’d find it silly and childish, or they don’t find normal golf sufficiently boring to switch. Golf on TV is heavily edited as it is. I suppose it might attract new followers, but I’m not convinced that this is fast and interesting enough for the ‘kids’.
It’d make a great game on the Wii though.
