After playing the demo on XBL I knew I had to try this game out. Was I in for a surprise! This is the real deal, every moment you spend on the links improving your golfer's skills is wonderful. Need I not even mention the Photo Face feature where the user can import photos of themselves, and the game will analyze the photos and create a very lifelike copy of them for the game.
There are only a few things that could make the game more enjoyable, more stuff in the pro shop, and better commentators.
All in all, I would have to give this a 10/10, the very few drawbacks don't detract from the fun in the least.

Ive played many PGA Tour games and 09 has many new things that you will like. First of all the game starts out with talking to you about the new features, and one feature that you will like if you play with your friends online is that you dont have to wait for you friend to put and everybody puts at the same time. Cutting the waiting time down a lot. Another thing i noticed is it looks like they improved the graphics by quite a bit so its even more appealing. But with every game there are down sides. The new coach and commentators are absolutly dreadful. Their voices are very weird and it gets very very annoying. Another thing i wish was on this which they had on some previous games is you cant save your games so it can get pretty annoying if you dont have enough time for 18 holes. But compared to other PGA Tour games it is one of the best and you should try this game out if you like golf.
