At first I was amazed at the voice acting. It sounds just like Lee Carvallo from that episode! But surely they had to somehow record new lines to account for the gameplay options that weren't shown in the TV episode, right?

Somehow I learned nothing from "her sweet can" about splicing clips to make new content.

Nope, no new lines necessary – Lee Carvallo says all of the options available in the game in the original episode (since he keeps advising the player to use a putting motion with a putter for his putting challenge).

Now having played the original game, I just hope Marge got it on remainder.

3 wood + power drive + 788 = perfect putt

take that, Carvallo

Also forwarding this to my Simpson's loving brother.

It has been 25 years since I first saw that episode and it has been 0 days since I learned that Lee Carvallo was a fictional character.

I am so smart, S-M-R-T.
