We were pretty pleased with John Daly's ProStroke Golf's fine motion controls, though less so with its presentation, and now anyone who's been putting off getting to grips with the Lion can get a slice of the game with a free demo, available across Europe today.

The demo offers several single-player modes, with nine holes in total to practise your driving, chipping and putting, and the tutorial mode to help you grip it and rip it.

If you like the freebie, be sure to read our John Daly's ProStroke Golf review to find out if the full game is worth your hard-earned cash.
