Got my wife a Wii sport and fit for Christmas, and just had to get the TW game for me (I didn't wrap it though...) :D

I've only managed to play it once so far, but I'm having trouble figuring out how I'm going to hold the controller. I'm worse with the game than I am in real life! Towards the end of the round, I just started swinging one handed and scored better, but that's not how I want to play the game.

How do you hold the controller?

I played it yesterday for the first time...I played with AK at pebble and shot a 78...for a first time player I thought I did pretty well..You should swing with 2 hands on the controller and try to mimic your actual swing. The sensor on the controller is pretty sensitive as to hiting a draw or fade...I wish I can score a 78 in real life at pebble...lol

Soooooo much better than 2009. The putting isn't absolutely perfect, but it doesn't make me scream in rage anymore which is a good thing. I swing with both hands as close to a normal golf grip as I can get. It works great!

Glad to see others are enjoying this as well! I swing with 2 hands just like a regular golf swing, I figure at worst it will get me used to swinging before I go play at Mrytle over spring break! Although my wife was yelling at me that I may wear a hole in our new carpet so I'll have to come up with a remedy for that! Actually what I do (laugh if you want) is put a golf ball on the ground, and take my normal stance/address and watch the ball, don't want to develop any bad habits on the real course, I have enough problems as it is! But the putting I do watch the screen so I get the right %.

Hi,

Do any of you use the plastic golf club accessory or do you just use the controller?

I'm thinking of attaching a plastic wii-club to a real shaft so I can have a more normal grip. But if I have to manipulate the controller buttons during the swing then that probably won't work.

Heh. I bought a four-pack of the little plastic/nerf wiimote golf club accessories on a super markdown at a discount store. I think they do absolutely nothing but give me the sense that there is a club-head I need to open and close through the swing, but I guess that is _something_. I like using them, but if they had cost me anything more than the $5.99 I paid for the lot of them, I wouldn't think it worthwhile.

I just got the Wii and Wii Fit for my wife for her birthday (SERIOUSLY! She wanted it more than I did!). We played until 1 in the morning the first day! Got hooked on the Challege games (Bowling strikes is cool, it adds one row to the back every shot, until you are going for 91 pins the last shot!).

We rented TW 08, that was the latest Blockbuster had at the time. What we didn't like about it is that you have to pass the remote back and forth. Does TW 2010 support two remotes?

Also, look at monoprice.com for all your accessories. I bought the component cables, a two-controller charger with two battery packs and a skin for the nunchuck and controller for $18.60 shipped. You can buy most of what you need from them.

I must say that I am addicted to the career modes. The Challenge feature is intense...as I have nearly thrown my controller across the room numerous times (wife really doesn't approve of such viloence, LOL) :D.

Does anyone else play this? If so, have they found out that swing plane = no effect? It seems like its only the clubface angle that affects ballfilight? Anyone else agree/disagree?

I'm interested in replies. I just got a Wii and I was thinking about grabbing one of the Tiger Woods 2009 or 2010 games. If there isn't much difference, I'll save the money and go 2009. If 2010 really is better, I'll spend the extra for the 2010.

Get 2010. Better than 2009, and it's awesome. It's not going to give you swing feedback based on your swing plane, etc... (c'mon, its a video game! lol) but the clubhead position at impact determines if the ball gets drawn, hooked, pulled, sliced, faded or pushed. All the fun is actually being able to swing it like a real club lol

best score: St. Andrews I shot a 37

Here's an idea how EA could add some spice to the game...

Anyone remember the 'Hot Coffee Mod' for GTA San Andreas?
Might also be good for TW 2010.

The more I think about it... lots of potential on the Wii

I got it just before christmas, and played it a couple of times. I can't putt for crap on that game, and pretty much quit playing it about a week after I got it.

    • My Swing (b101)
      Not much of an update, as due to a lot of work in the run up to exams, I haven't actually hit the range much recently. I've also quite enjoyed taking a break from endless swing thoughts and just getting things feeling a bit more natural. The flight is now high, with a 7 iron flight looking more like what my pitching wedge used to look like. The shape is now usually right to left with the bad miss still when I get the face closed at impact. Distance is definitely better, too, with a 7 iron now carrying around 170 on a good hit - at least 10/15 yards longer than with that shorter swing I had around the turn of the year. I'm going to get on the range a bit more in the next few months and will start uploading some footage, but things are looking and feeling pretty good.

      Stupid easy to hit, too.

      I find it becoming a strange discussion. My 2c. Stick with your evolved instructor. Or respect the given instructions. And deal with it. Use what you think is helpfull. Otherwise I do not understand why you would seek advise in this thread. I might be wrong but to me it seems you do not trust your evolved coach and or the given opinions.    To me, it presents an insight how top coaches are looking at your swing.

      Handicap card completed - Off a 23 which is a bit higher than I'd like, Going to play in my first comp next month hopefully. Still working on those blow up holes. Shot an 86 yesterday which is my best round in a long time! 
    • What would a PGA Tour player shoot at your home course?
      @iacas Not sure why you feel the need to try and make people feel stupid? What's the attitude all about?

      Because you seem to think that nobody else has any valid arguments, I felt compelled to contact a friend of mine and ask him about the subject. He has won twice on the MacKenzie Tour, 4 times on the Gateway Tour and played in the US Open in 2010 at Pebble Beach. I Facebooked him a few days ago and heard back from him today. He said that his Tour buddies of that calibre typically shoot in the mid 60's (or lower) if they play an "average" course for a Pro-Am or a sponsor's event or for a casual round. He added that he played a municipal course in Phoenix last week (he didn't say which one) and shot -8 without ever having seen the course before. And he was never able to make it through the final stage of Q-School so he self-admittedly doesn't have the skillset of the PGA guys. I still say the average Tour player would shoot in the low 60's at my course. Here's the scorecard of it, and Nick Taylor's scores from the 2006 Provincial Tournament. He was only a junior at the time and hadn't played for the University of Washington yet. Safe to say his handicap has improved a little bit since then  and he still shot 68 twice and under difficult tournament conditions! No way he'd shoot that now.
