> Roger is only so-so all-around, but has a wide range of tricks (Turbo driver! Homing ball! Excavator wedge!) which make up the difference.
EXCAVATOR WEDGE!? That's one way to get out of a sand trap. Or get a tree out of the way.
I'll toss in a couple more:
Tawny - Excellent control on the fairway and long drives, but her short game is not as good; tends to overshoot putts and chip shots. Pretty good at bunker and rough play. Keep her moving, though, she's not very patient. Wasting time on club selection and lining up shots makes her short game worse.
Rainman - Takes a LOT of balls to golf the way he does. Any shot into a rough or hazard automatically takes a 2-3 stroke penalty for losing the ball. Short game and putting are quite good. Although his range is excellent in the long game his control is unpredictable at best. This is balanced by "spamming" tricks such as The Shotgun: launching six balls gives a choice of playable lies for a single lost ball penalty. Has a limited number of balls to use per game; one starting option trades a few clubs for extra balls. Nearly all upgrades involve carrying more balls or launching more of them per stroke (that penalty never goes away.)
Kasi - the Lethal Joke Character of the game. Wildest swing and least control at any range in straight play. She could use a putter at the tee and get anything from one yard to a hole in one. However, with unconventional club selections (a 3 wood on the green?) bizarre technique (aim 45 degrees off the fairway, swing way too hard, force a severe slice and get a decently targeted drive) and a long list of strange shots specific to each green (e.g. to get down the fourth fairway, use a #2 iron, aim her at the club house, swing as hard as possible; the ball will ricochet off two trees and a duck) she's amazingly effective. Fast reflexes and exceedingly fast play are necessary to get ANY use of her, she's the least patient.
Howie turns up in the game driving a beer and hot dog wagon. Ask him for pointers about specific holes, it can save a huge number of strokes. Just make sure you buy a hot dog.
