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.

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.

    • I would still argue that most people that are passionate about soccer (the world's most popular sport) aren't on twitter.    Have you been to a pub in a foreign country watching a soccer match?    It's crazy and full of emotions. 
    • Many, many years ago, I cut my left pinkie at work.  I didn't think it was anything serious, no real pain.   I was headed on vacation the next day.   Two week later and I still couldn't straighten the finger.   The tendon had been cut.   Because it happened at work it was a Workman Comp claim and I heard all kinds of crap from the boss and the medical department.   The shop doctor tried to convince me that I was too  old (26) to have the surgery and the finger would be fine since I wasn't in any pain.    I had the surgery and they placed a pin in my finger from the middle knuckle to a little past my nail.   It was irritating but not painful until they removed the pin w/o any anesthesia.     The hard part was the PT.   I didn't have any and worked with the finger myself.   Arthritis has caught up to some of my fingers but still vividly remember the PT.

    • Day 430 - March 3, 2021 Played 18 holes at Lonnie Poole Golf Course (NC State's course). Played from 6950 even though we got NO roll. Raleigh isn't sandy like Pinehurst. 😄
    • Day 59 - Frustrating day of practice. A bunch of swings, slow and full speed, trying to open my hips enough during the backswing. Each time I seem to get it, something else seems to go wrong. Golf, gotta love it.
