    Looks awesome.

    2011 is OK with the Move, but you can tell it was more of an afterthought, can't wait for this one.

    It should be a good one. Augusta National is a class act and they wouldn't allow anything but the best. Stay tuned.

    LOL... I was so excited about the Augusta inclusion that TW was an afterthought... but in that vein how about...

    I wonder how accurate the move controller movement will be. I always hated golf on the Wii b/c accuracy seemed to be based on how straight you could swing the controller forward and back; a real golf swing didn't yield the appropriate results.

    Of course I usually shoot in the 95-105 range when I play real golf so maybe it IS my swing :biggrin:

    If you're bored, check out a YouTube vid of John Daly's Pro Stroke Golf. I haven't played it, but it certainly looks spot on accurate. Hopefully the new TW is somewhat similar.

    The Move controller is surprisingly accurate since not only does it record movement, but it has a gyroscope in the controller to determine wrist movements as well.

    I live in North Augusta and I can not believe the Augusta National is letting them make a game based on the course. There must be a TON of cash involved.

    I am sure there was quite a bit of money involved but game is not solely based on Augusta and as usual there is a balance in promoting the courses used and the game itself (don't forget the help with Tiger's image clean up...he may have taken a hit on this one to self promote:rolleyes::rolleyes:)

    This one should be great looking foward to it

    This is being released on March 29th. According to Tiger, EA has The National down to 6mm accuracy. Suppose to be a large demand being a week away from the real deal.

    I rode by there this afternoon. They had the gate open and you could see all the way to the big house. Hope the blooms hold out as all the dogwoods are in full bloom now. I'm off that week, got to find something to do.:wink:

    ^ I have not done it yet. It's kind of a hassle to do it. If I could find an older couple to rent it that wouldn't tear the place up it might not be too bad. I don't want to haul my 2.3tl's around in the trunk for a week. However; I could buy two pair+ for the week's rent.

    I'm always willing to give a free night's stay to the right (blonde, brunette, redhead) golf fan.

    I'm pretty sure they stopped making Tiger Woods for the PC back in 2008. Not only that, but also NCAA Football and Madden. Pretty crappy if you ask me.

    I've spent the better part of the day with this game on PS3 and the Move. I'll give you the short version...

    The ball striking is great and lots of fun, the putting is absurdly difficult and inconsistent.

    This isn't on Augusta, you have to work your way up to that course. This is on the second course on the Amateur Tour, gameplay on the easy setting.

    I can't wait to play Augusta, but at this rate it'll never happen...

    I downloaded the demo for this game and it was pretty sweet. Might pull the trigger soon, but I am just not sure I have the time to commit to it.
