the only way you can like this game or have any respect for it is if you are already a pro on the greens. if you dont know anything about golf this game is a complete waste of time. the graphics and game play are decent but there is no explanation within the game about anything about golf. you just start the game and wing it. it leaves you wondering whats that or hows that. its just ridiculous how much easier the game would be if there was just a little bit of insight. take golden tee for instance , anyone off the street can play golden tee because there are simple explanations and instructions. PGA tour on the other hand dont tell you squat. if you dont know how to play you never will. they could at least make a power bar for swinging. the game would be cool other than that. there is no room for error in the game play and that sucks. games can give a little bit of lead way in some aspects and still now be a gimme game. i just think its gonna keep a lot of gamers from making this ea title as big as madden, where anyone that has never seen, touched, or played football can pick up the controller and within 10 minutes be able to play. whats my opinion on Tiger Woods PGA Tour 07, screw golf, its weak and this game is gonna be what gives people who aint tiger himself the wrong idea about golf and say the same thing.

Well, normally I am a Hot Shots player, but every year, I give Tiger a spin, just to see if there is anything I'm missing. This year, I am very happy that I took that test drive. The controls are spot on and the graphics just shine on the PS3. The create your golfer mode is awesome this time around and after a little trial and error, I made a golfer that looked alot like me. Now, I have read lots of reviews and either I am a gaming God (which could be true), or I am just a lucky SOB, but I have noticed that if you ease your way into the game, then you can win from the beginning. What I suggest is to train your golfer and to do the Tiger Challenges before starting your season. This raises your golfers level, and gives you the practice you need before taking on a full field of golfers. Overall, I am very pleased with this game. As someone who plays golf in real life, but isn't all that great, it's nice to play Tiger and hit the shots, that I can only dream of making.
