Tiger Woods' third game on Wii is the first to be developed by EA Tiburon, lead designers of the franchise on competing platforms. A revamped swing system now features a 1:1 relationship between your off-screen movements and your onscreen counterpart. Pull back on the Wii Remote, for example, and your golfer will begin his backswing at the same time. Draw and fade are accomplished by holding the remote at an inward or outward angle while swinging. As with previous titles in the "All-Play" series, controls can be simplified to the point where novices only have focus on making contact.
PGA Tour 09 on Wii includes many key features from the more advanced console versions, from the club shaping option to Tiger's personal coach, Hank Haney, who will offer advice to improve your game. Exclusive to the Wii version is the ability to jump straight to the FedEx Cup without first having to qualify. Another exclusive is the "Party Game" option that has you competing against friends in challenges like juggling a ball or racing golf carts. PGA Tour 09 on Wii also introduces online support for up to four players. Rather than alternate turns, everyone competes simultaneously for a faster-paced outing. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
