I rented Tiger Woods 07 earlier this year, and I absolutely hated it (you can find my review if you like... I gave it a 4).
The big step up here was the motion controls on the Wii. The problems that I had in Tiger Woods 07 with the game registering a 50% power & off target swing WHILE I WAS STILL IN MY BACKSWING seems to be fixed. I played for a while, and it hasn't happened once.
The Good -Motion controls are much improved over TW07 -A few game modes to choose from with plenty of replay value -The club on-screen tracks real motion better than TW07 -Announcers are still relatively mean, but not quite as annoying -Golfer is completely customizable
The Bad -Graphics look the same as TW07... maybe slightly better than PS2 quality -Still can't get a draw shot right, even when I twist my wrist pre-swing to close the club face -Game is full priced even though it isn't much different
Summary -I'm considering keeping this one. With the control issue fixed, it is a fun experience (unlike my real life golf game). If you like Golf, rent this one on the Wii.

The game overall was pretty fun. The swinging motion was sensative, which gave a nice realistic touch. My main annoyance was with the hand orientation. I'm left handed, and although I choose left handed orientation when I started the training, the normal game switched me back to right handed. This is a minor thing and easy to change, but was annoying. It made the game seem backwards on all of my strokes until I figured out that it was right handed. Overall a fun game though.
