  • ”You’re doing a good job out there! Should I be worried?”
  • ”Your courses are well below par. That’s a good thing!”

  • “You are a God walking among mere mortals! A spectacular golfer!”
  • ”If I had a trophy to give for your amazing swings, I'd give you ten!”
  • ”What a breathtaking golfer! You may be at the top, but never stop reaching for it!”

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • In multiplayer, the Golfer's shop unlocks are per player, so everyone must golf in order to purchase his full inventory.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Due to the Underground Desert becoming much more dangerous in Hardmode, it is recommended to find the Golfer before entering Hardmode.
  • The Golfer can be found using the Hunter Potion.
  • The Golfer can be a lot harder to rescue in expert and master mode, so if you hear his hurt sound or see the damage indicator, try to reach his position as fast as possible. One way make finding the golfer easier though is to illuminate every small pocket of the desert so finding and retrieval is easier.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The name "Lion Pines" is a reference to the real world professional golfer Tiger Woods.
  • The name "Arnie Palmfrond" is a reference to the real world professional golfer Arnold Palmer.
  • The name "Gunner Mclovin" is a reference to the real world professional golfer Rory McIlroy and fictional golfer Shooter Mcgavin from Happy Gilmore.
  • The name "Harry Madison" is a reference to the Adam Sandler comedy Billy Madison.
  • The name "Jake Nicklelisp" is a reference to the real world professional golfer Jack Nicklaus.
  • The fact that he is found in the Underground Desert is likely a reference to getting stuck in a sand trap while golfing.
  • One of the Golfer's quotes, "Don't go chasing water hazards, please stick to the fairways and greens that you're used to." is a reference to the TLC song 'Waterfalls'.
  • One of the Golfer’s quotes, “Huh? You eat WHAT for breakfast?” is a reference to the movie Happy Gilmore.
  • The Golfer was first shown off in the town night spoiler released by Re-Logic’s YouTube channel on October 1st, 2018.
  • The quote "I'm not the type to scream and thrash around just because my ball lands in the water. I stay calm, and collected, and focus on the next shot." could be a reference to the fact that many golfers have suffered a brief bout of anger due to a misplaced shot.
  • The quote "I don't know what's scarier, a Blood Moon, or my sister during a Blood Moon!" suggests that the Zoologist may be the Golfer's sister, because she transforms into a Werefox during a Blood Moon.
    • This is further supported by a quote from the Zoologist, "Of course I like <name of Golfer>! I like, knew them since I was born!".
    • It is even further supported by the fact that they have the same eye color, same skin color, and ( before the Zoologist's hair turned orange after taking a cursed fox bite to the knee ) even the same hair color.
  • The quote “You’re doing a good job out there! Should I be worried?” suggests that the Golfer cares a lot about his golf score, and is concerned the player may become better.
