“What's up? I'm new, but golf is my thing! And I'll go toe-to-toe to prove it!”Princess Daisy, Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour
Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour is the third installment of the Mario Golf series, initially released in 2003 on the Nintendo GameCube.
Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour is Daisy’s first playable appearance in the Mario Golf series. She is one of the twelve starting characters on the roster. Daisy also debuts her modern sportswear in this game, a yellow tank top and orange shorts with yellow pockets. Additionally, this is the first time Daisy is voiced by Deanna Mustard. After being provided a gentle and regal-sounding voice by her previous two voice actresses, Kate Fleming and Jen Taylor respectively, Mustard gives Daisy more spunkiness and a proclivity to slang terms.
Gameplay wise, Daisy is one of the strongest characters in the game. Her normal drive’s distance is 213 yards, the fourth highest drive in the game, and her Star drive’s distance is 270, the fifth highest in the game. Overall, her stats are very positive, with the exception of her Star impact and control.
Daisy is featured sporadically in Toadstool Tour’s opening cutscene. At the beginning of the movie, Mario and Luigi are shown admiring a trophy and looking at their reflections in it. From offscreen, Peach and Daisy call the brothers (with Daisy specifically calling Luigi and Peach calling Mario) so their golf game can start. The four characters are all shown hitting their golf balls and supporting their friends after they hit their golf ball. Later in the movie, Daisy, Mario, Luigi, and Peach move to another part of the golf course. The quartet gets a perfect view of a building that they are shocked to see explode (unbeknownst to them, due to a Bob-omb Bowser dropped on Wario and Waluigi).
- Select Screen: If the character goes to Daisy’s icon in the select screen, Daisy is shown dancing, putting one leg up after the other and pulling her arms in and out. She is heard humming.
- Eagle: Daisy jumps up and down twice while yelling "Yes! Yes!". She waves to her right and to her left while proclaiming "I rule!" . She then grunts and makes a peace sign to the camera.
- Birdie: Daisy, with clasped hands, jumps up and down, alternating from facing left to right.
- Par: Daisy puts her hands on her hips and tilts her head.
- Bogey: Daisy puts a hand on her forehead and makes an exasperated sigh. She puts her head then, then picks it up, placing a knuckle on her chin.
- Double Bogey: "No, no, no, no, no, you klutz!" Daisy exclaims while shaking her head and throwing her hands down. Daisy sighs and calms herself down, telling herself to "Get it together" in a low tone.
