2019 Pro Season for HISTORY MAKER GOLF

sample golfer cards for 2019 Pro Season, HMG

Today's pro golf stars take their places on your tabletop with the 2018-19 Pro Season cards for HISTORY MAKER GOLF Championship Golf Board Game, NOW AVAILABLE!

The 2018-19 pro season had some notable changes: a shorter schedule, numerous venue changes, some new rules designed to speed up tournament play, and more than double the prize money from the previous year. When it was all over, Rory McIlroy had put some distance between himself and the rest of the field, winning the championship cup by four points. McIlroy was the consensus Player of the Year, finishing in the Top 10 in fourteen of the nineteen events in which he competed. (Only Jon Rahm and Adam Scott had as many as half!) Despite his success, McIlroy ($7.8 million) still found himself behind Brooks Koepka ($9.7 million) in money-earnings. In all, fourteen golfers cleared $4 million on the 2018-19 pro tour.

And then there was the continued resurgence of Tiger Woods! An epic afternoon at Augusta found Tiger earning his fifth green jacket by one stroke over a trio of runners-up!

With the new 2018-19 Pro Season cards for HISTORY MAKER GOLF, you get cards for golf's biggest stars and many, many more: every golfer who had a top ten finish during the season is carded for this set, almost 200 golfers in all. (Cards for an additional 27 pros who didn't post a top ten finish are also available for free download, or as printed cards for an additional couple of dollars, see ordering information for details.)

Each golfer's card, whether star or on-the-fringe, is thoughtfully crafted to re-create his real-life golf game on your tabletop, capturing abilities (or deficiencies) in shot-making, distance and accuracy, putting, short game and everything else! Big hitters like McIlroy, Watson and Johnson will get that extra distance from the tee, while Stuard, Stenson and Furyk will sometimes frustrate you by coming up short. Pros like Reavie and Casey will consistently set themselves up for birdie opportunities with accurate shots from the tee box, while Thomas and Koepka will be among your most lethal with an iron. Other golfers will have to be more creative, though! Guys like Spieth and Leishman will tap into superior scrambling skills to get themselves out of trouble brought on by (not infrequent) errant shots. It's sometimes a struggle for someone like Mainati to get to the green, but then you'll often watch him hole an unbelievable putt from long range to earn birdies the hard way. For a pro like Conners, it's the opposite experience: consistently true shots to the green are undone by missed putts.

Each golfer is also rated for his actual tournament standing, which when used in conjunction with HMG's "Tournament Mode" will ensure that the top golfers show up most often as your final round contenders, while allowing for the rest of the field to have their shot as well. (We recently published this newsletter article on tweaking Tournament Mode to allow for the selective participation of today's top stars.) Intangibles will factor in, adding a fun element of unpredictability and surprise to your schedule of events. Experience comes into play, too—you'll see journeyman pros rise to the occasion by drawing on veteran "smarts," while the highly-touted young stars occasionally make "rookie mistakes!" It's all part of the fun of tabletop pro golf, with the 2018-19 Pro Season cards for HISTORY MAKER GOLF.

You'll have a great time watching your season unfold, as the world of pro golf comes alive on your game table with this realistic collection of cards representing today's pro golf scene. Who'll win top honors at your Pro Open, or the green jacket at your version of Augusta? You'll experience tension and drama as your season winds down, with the top guys on your money list scrambling to move up a notch or two, or hanging on for dear life!

Or, line up your favorite golfers and conduct match play, stroke play, skins games, short-form tournaments, or just enjoy a leisurely round of golf with your favorite golf star on one of HMG's many available pro courses. However you choose to play, we know you'll have a ball!
