Drive, Swing, Die is a case featured in Criminal Case, appearing as the forty-sixth case of the game as well as the city of Grimsborough. It takes place in Maple Heights, a district based in Grimsborough.
Jones and the player went golfing in a golf course, where the player found something suspicious in one of the holes. After looking through it, they found Tony Webb, a golf player, buried in a golf course. The killer turned out to be Harold Knight, a professional golfer and Tony's rival.
Harold wanted to be number one, but Tony was always winning. Tony was about to be exposed for his womanizing ways but still it was not enough for Harold. Tony would just come back later to steal the trophy from him again.
David Jones contended that golf was just a sport and not a game of life or death. Harold believed the only way to be number one was to invite Tony for a little game at the golf course via Tony's cart. Upon arrival, Harold struck Tony with Tony's golf club and bound his legs and arms to finally bury him at the 5th hole. Tony screamed all throughout the night until Harold came back in the morning to put the final nail in the coffin: he played the 5th hole, thus choking Tony with his golf ball.
Judge Hall told Harold that he killed someone in cold blood just for the love of a golf tournament, but Harold believed that golf was the fuel he needed to live life. For the murder of Tony Webb, Harold was sentenced to 25 years in jail, with a chance for parole in 15 years.
