PGA Tour Golf is a very good early 90s golf game by Electronic Arts. The game offers a tournament option, four courses to play on and has better physics than Links, PGA's main competitor. The game sports many options including the ability to play against a friend or computer players in tournaments to earn money, and watch a Live Score card after each hole you play. There are many practice options as well. After FIFA Soccer and NHL Hockey, PGA Tour Golf is a great start in a sport series by Sterling Silver (later absorbed into EA Sports label). The game series is still going strong, and has been recently renamed to Tiger Woods Golf.
PGA Tour Golf introduced many of the conventions commonly seen in the genre since. The three-click control method (the first to start the swing, the second setting power and over-swing, the third setting draw or fade) allowed for a multitude of different shots, and required a sense of timing. One of the four courses is a fantasy 'links' course designed by the programmers. Some of the holes are fiendish, with bunkers, water hazards and trees, and the need to plan strategies to get the best approach to the green.
When playing a tournament there are 60 opponents, each representing top US golfers - ten of these appear with tactical advice for each hole.
