Just poped on Everybody’s Hotshots Golf World Tour Out of Bounds for abit, and noticed that the scheduled tournaments looked alot nicer. With a forecast of light showers and winds or no wind speeds and various courses available to play on Grade Zero tournaments…

Not sure about the light wind thing since it makes tournaments or scores unofficial for the rankings or personal bests, but it is a nice change… Welldone to whoever managed to make the administrators realise that their settings for the schedules and trial cups are pathetic. Atleast things are looking good for the International server after the game has been out for a year.

Now all we need is more players…

Alright well I originally thought it was something gone wrong with the scripting of this site, but it turns out it was something else. Anyway I have now fixed the issue where people weren’t receiving any email confirmations for registrations or forgetting passwords, so if some of you still are frequently visiting. Please try to use the forgotten password option to see if you receive email that fixes your account, then post a comment here so I know it works properly.


Also some of the guides has been temporarily taken down for revisions… Will be back when I have some time to go over then.

Nearly missed this, but I guess it isn’t a big deal… Just a small promotional clip introducing all the current Download Contents available for Minna no Golf 5. It’s fun to watch if you like this sort of thing or wish to feel some love from the makers of the game.

Finally hit one… A very nice one too… Despite not uploading all my other videos I had to upload this for several reasons… Just watch.

This is a shot I have probably attempted about 10 or 20 times during online stroke or tournaments… It turned out exactly like how it was planned in theory and as an added bonus was hit with Jasmine instead of Yukino. Which is what you’d usually expect from me for these shots right…?

Speaking of Yukino… I have made Yukino Userbar for Yukino players to use:

Yukino Userbar


Just like the other userbars you can use them on other websites or forums. Enjoy…

Updated the back end of the site and fixed some display bugs so other browsers that aren’t IE should be handling the site better now.

Edit: Alright still some bugs to iron out but for now, deal with it if you can… or use Google Chrome.

Alright for those who can get 10 people ready for a tournament when there is no tournaments but Trial Cups on Oceania or G-Rex you can dodge the system… This trick makes use of the Reservation SystemYou will need to deactivate the game content of your PlayStation Network Account which you have purchased the Add-on content on. Reserve the tournament or Jump it if you feel like, however if you don’t reactivate your content… you won’t be able to use your Add-on Characters in the tournament.

Steps to Dodge System:

  • Locate a Trial Cup on Oceania or G-Rex within the hour.
  • Log off and head to Network > Account Management > Activate/Deactivate > Playstation 3 > Game.
  • Log on the Game again and book the Trial Cup.
  • Optional: If you wish to use your Add-on Characters do the second step again and Activate after reserving your spot in the tour.
  • Return to the game and wait for your Trial Cup.

Remember if you don’t reactivate your account all your PSN purchases won’t work. So keep that in-mind…. 😉

This maybe abit tedious for some players who have their purchases made on a different account, but for those who are willing to get a game… it is worth the 2 or 3 minutes of extra effort. If 10 people are also willing to dodge it even more… There is a part 2 to this. If you are interested, ask if you see me in the lobbies.

Today I figured I would spend a little time on the International server… What do you know, they are enabling the trial cup feature. Basically this is a feature that allows you to play a course you currently have not played or enabled. Usually this is in the form of a Grade Free Tournament, but for some odd reason the people in charge of the International server think this will be fun to enable it for Grade Zero Tournaments.

 What are they? Retarded? Enabling this feature for tournaments means that only players who don’t have the course can participate in them. Why enable this feature on courses such as Silver Peaks and Crown Links? People cannot participate in them if you do that, since most people who reach G0 would have already played all the courses. Understandbly this should be a Grade Free feature because on the International server none of these tournaments will fill up since no one can join them. This feature should remain a Grade Free option and also allowed only for the Add-on courses such as Oceania and *Cough* Golfasaurus-Rex *Cough* courses since they are something that not everyone will have or purchase. Giving them a trial or sneak preview which doesn’t count into their profile might give them the urge to buy those add-ons. Anyhow that is about it…

 Also the course comes with some bugs. One being the flag icon has not been implemented correctly leaving a strange icon… or the Okinawa one.
