Futagolf posterWhen a dedicated couch potato is given a free golfing session at a cutting edge VR simulation company he gets more than he bargained for.

Add to the mix a computer generated golf pro that’s low on both processing power and patience and a frenetic disco dancer that invades the hallowed greens of Augusta and you may just have the chance for something special to happen.


 About the Authors

Mark Hardwidge

Mark Hardwidge

IT Consultant Mark Hardwidge is 43 years old (physically that is – way younger mentally!) and lives with his wife and two 2 children, Seren and Ethan, in Church Village near Pontypridd. He has had a short story called ‘Nirvana Inc.’ published in an American compilation and a play, ‘Wild Merthyr Skies’, performed at the Chapter Arts Centre in Cardiff.

Mark is developing quite a relationship with the Dolman Theatre, having written an adaptation of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ for Solo and a darkly amusing piece called “Frost” for the Newport Playgoers Studio Group, which was entered into the DAW one act play competition last May.

His next offering will be for Playgoers New Generation (PNG) and is called “The Trial of Edward Byfleet”, which may or may not be about the destruction of the human race.
