Eidos announced a new golf title called Swingerz Golf which will make its way to the Nintendo GameCube this Fall. The game is an English version of Japanese development studio Telenet's game, Wai Wai Golf. Swingerz Golf offers six different courses, 14 insane characters, lots of mini-games, and four modes of play (1-4 players) including Tournament, Stroke, Match and Short Course. This is not your daddy's golf game.

Swingerz Golf is a fast-paced golf game combining comical characters with real-world golf physics and intuitive gameplay. The result is a humorous pick-up-and-play golf game for both novice and expert gamers alike.
