This is a good golf game with very smooth gameplay. The game offers several modes of play ranging from super easy to pretty realistic and difficult. The easiest mode eliminates the possibility of a mis-hit or an unwanted hook or slice. Essentially, if you hit the ball, it goes far and straight. As you increase the difficulty, the way you swing your controller has a greater and greater influence on how your ball flies. I was not able to find where the stats of a created golfer can be increased in a versus mode. I found this to be the greatest disadvantage of the game. My roommate and I wanted to play against each other with created golfers, which we were able to do. But during our head-to-head matches there were virtually no rewards for the low scores we posted.
This seems like a great game, but I would love to be able to use a standard (x-box like) controller. Players should have the option of wii remote or standard controller. It would have made game play a lot more fun. Still a very good game, but could have been more fun!

I had recently played this game and was not disappointed. The graphics have been upgraded to look more beautiful then 2011. All of the courses are back with the addition of the Masters courses some more difficult then others but all beautiful rendered. The golfers in this game are all the current players on the pga and lpga tours. I liked the road to the masters game mode where you create a player and take him from amatuer tournaments to hopefully playing in the Masters. I also liked the disc golf and mini golf games as well a fun distraction when you are not looking to play real golf. This game is as close to being on the real golf course as you can get without actually being outside. I would highly recommend this game as a purchase for golfers and golf games enthusiats alike. Keep up the good work EA Sports. Looking forward to many more years of tiger woods pga tour golf.
