Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour (Nintendo GameCube) Playthrough – Part 1
To add on to the collection of sport game playthroughs on my channel I’ve decided to add one of my personal favorites, “Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour”. I chose Wario for Lakitu Valley because of his booming hits on the ball and because he has the record for the course. — Each 18-hole game will have a two parts [the front nine for one part, and the back nine for the other]. Unfortunately, I won’t be playing any of the Star Tournaments since I’m nowhere near being experienced enough to beat them all.

This is good, if painful. At many golf tournaments, the pros can win a car if they ace a certain hole. At the WGC-Cadillac Championships on Sunday, a Cadillac was the prize. Makes sense, right? And when Paul Casey stepped up to the par-3 15th, he assumed that the Cadillac behind him was the prize for acing that hole. Casey informed his caddie, Craig Connelly, that the two of them would split the prize car if Casey aced the hole. You can guess what happened next. Using an 8-iron, Casey dropped in the 1, and Connelly, nicknamed “Wee Man,” went crazy with delight. There was only one problem: The 15th wasn’t the prizewinning hole. The 13th was. Nice ace, but no prize. Sorry! When he learned the sad news from a rules official, the Wee Man was more than a wee bit peeved as he walked from the tee box straight to the next hole. Casey, for his part, took it in stride. “I don’t think I’ve ever not wanted a ball to go in the hole,” he laughed after the round, according to CBS’s Eye on Golf. “I never enjoyed not winning a car so much.” You can forgive the Wee Man for being a little antsy. This marks Casey’s first start since injuring himself snowboarding last winter. Still, he’ll be in the field for many a big event in the coming weeks … and you can bet his caddie will know exactly what’s at stake on every hole.
