Tiger Woods The Masters Video Game ruined my swing.

8 posts in this topic

Damn this game.

Last week I was playing this game and finally got the chance to play the Augusta course for The Masters championship...

Well I stayed up all night and won The Masters; however, the next day I played 18 and shot a 118!

Keep in mind I have consistently been shooting in the 100-105 range the past couple of months.

I played again yesterday and shot a 116.

I think the PS Move may have ruined my swing.

It wasn't playing a game, it was staying up all night that ruined your golf.  Been there, done that.

This isn't the first time I've heard of peoples real life swing going in the toilet after playing a lot sim golf. I assume your playing with a Wii remote or something similar? I can see how you might groove a lot of bad habits that way.

I wouldn't be surprised. I have to force myself not to ever play the Tiger Woods wii game, or at least just swing with only my wrist because of this. If you actually pretend to swing, you groove in sloppy habits.

Yup, I agree. My daughter wanted TW for the Wii, I bought it, played it, got hooked on it, added 10 strokes to my average round over the past 6 weeks. Not playing it anymore. I shot my best round in over a month today becuase everytime I stepped up to the ball I did each individual step the way my pro taught me that I "thought" had ingrained in my memory already.

Of course I usually have 34-35 putts and today I had 41 so my score was still too high BUT at least it was for a new reason. No more TW for me.

That's why I play it on Xbox360 without Kinect....but lack of sleep would be a bad thing for golf swings.

    • Video tape yourself making a slow backswing  to the length you want and hold the position. Make a mental note of what it feels like. Then try to make a swing and make a mental note of what the swing felt like, how much turn, how much did the arms move. Then check the video. See if you hit your the swing length you want. If not then do the slow swings again, hold the position you want. Then make another swing but this time try to shorten it up. If need to, swing like 50% backswing turn rates. Check the video, how closer were you? Keep doing it till you get the swing where you want it.  This is what I do to try to teach myself to swing shorter. It will take some time, but it gets easier over time. For me, my driver is a between A2-A3 swing length feel that gets me A4. 
    • I nit pick a lot.  I'm smarter than the average voter. I actually read the voter pamphlet. I study the issues in the campaign and research the candidates. There's a lot of propaganda out there. For Trump, where's the beef? Trump steaks? I don't see any beef. I just see a lot of hot air.  I'd still like to know how he's going to kick 11 million people out of the country without having a secret police force. It'll involve racial profiling and people will have to make sure they have their papers in order. They may even be citizens but still get caught up in the sweep because they don't have their papers in order. Does everyone have their papers in order? Plus who is going to pick next season's crops? I know that's stereotyping but still.  His statement on immigration... all countries have shown themselves to be vulnerable. So... no more immigration? We're a nation of immigrants. Tariffs worked really well for Herbert Hoover.  Hillary is no saint. That's a given. But damn.  
    • Steve Stricker is grouped with David Toms and Rich Beem. How many fans can correctly identify who isn't the past champion in that threesome?
    • Since it's law in Virginia that a Governor can only serve on term in office at a time it makes it difficult to gauge their time there. During his time as Governor the state of Virginia was one of three states to earn the highest grade in terms of management in a report by the non-partisan Pew Center on the States. Also, Virginia took first place each year from 2006 to 2009 in the "Best States For Business" rankings published by Forbes magazine. I think he's a good pick as VP. Virginia has gone Democrat the last two elections.  For his term in the Senate he's got a very good relationship in working with both Democrats and Republicans.   
    • Don't you think deporting 11 million (or whatever the figure is) undocumented/illegal immigrants will take a pretty big government? How about building a giant border wall? Or the 35% tariff he would impose? Oh, and don't forget he promised not to touch entitlements.
