Tiger Woods returns to Game Boy Advance in a golf game featuring six golfers and five different courses. Modes of play include Speed Golf, Skill Zone, and Career, with the latter spanning multiple tournaments to compete in for cash rewards. Money earned during Game Boy Advance matches can be transferred to Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2004 on GameCube to unlock additional bonuses in the console game. Tiger Woods and John Daly are both playable in the portable version, but the remaining characters are fictitious. Of the five courses, three are authentic and two are fantasy based.
Unlike the first Tiger Woods game on the handheld, the interface is designed to mirror the console versions. The primary view is set behind the golfer as players carry out their swing using the vertical motion of the Control Pad, while taking account ball lie and wind conditions. Planning a shot's direction switches the screen to an overhead perspective, which also serves as the viewpoint for the putting game. As in the console versions, an off-screen caddie will automatically read the green's slope and suggest where players should aim before carrying out the putt. All money earned from competition as well as individual player statistics are saved to battery backup. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
