Nothing Golden About Golden Tee Creator’s Game

LIBERTYVILLE, Ill. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Larry Hodgson may be the creator of the popular Golden Tee Golf arcade game, but there’s nothing golden about his game.

Although he designed the bar arcade game staple 15 years ago, Hodgson says he’s still “not very good.”

It miffs Hodgson, who says he “knows how everything works,” but he figures his lack of hand-eye coordination has held him back from being the Tiger Woods of the arcade gaming world.

Unlike most arcade gamers who are unathletic geeks, Hodgson says the best Golden Tee players are “really great athletes and have unbelievable hand-eye coordination.”

Still, Hodgson says he continues to play Golden Tee several times a week – including teeing it up on his latest version, called Golden Tee Live.
