Summary: I originally purchased "Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09: All Play" for the Wii because I enjoyed the "Wii Sports" golf game, and I wanted a game where I could play more courses. I was disappointed by the manual, since it was only about four (tiny) pages long, and it didn't cover 99% of the features of the game. The in-game help is not much better, leaving the user to figure out the vast majority of the game through trial and error (and sometimes serendipity).
Putting has gotten worse, McCord and Feherty are gone

Summary: The Good There's finally online multiplayer and it works really well. The simultaneous shot mode present in online play is a great idea that allows up to four people to play 18 holes in a reasonable amount of time without being forced to watch everyone else's shots. The party game mode is fun to play with other people who don't have the patience for a full round and the new All-Play swing system lets beginners pick up the game pretty easily.
Summary: I bought this game anticipating it was going to be better than, or at least as good as the little freebie that comes with the Wii. BOY.....was I wrong!! Hitting the ball is easy when you're Teeing off or on the fairway but putting is INCREDIBLY difficult.....in fact most times I managed to hit it more than 3 inches were by accident....and an accident I could NOT replicate...despite MANY MANY online guides trying to "instruct" me on the finer points of putting in TW 09.
Summary: This is a dreadful game! You have to swing at 100% to put a few yards grrr. The gameface option is pretty good tho you can get a player that looks a lot like yourself. I woud skip this and go for 07, 08 or 10 they are much better. The motion plus with 10 is great. Give 09 a big thumbs down DON'T BUY IT!
Summary: I am not somebody who plays golf but I do know that when you are on the green you don't have to swing your putter like a 3 iron to putt the ball. However on this you do it is so silly I can't beleive Tiger Woods has allowed his name to be put on this game. This really ruins the game if you are a serious golfer I would stay clear because it's not how you play golf not unless you are on Great Yarmouth seafront on a Tuesday night if you know what I mean.
Summary: After playing wii sports games i anticipated this game to be a notch higher and more "realistic" than the wii sports golf. Sadly i've been very disappointed. The putting is completely ludicrous! Having to take a full swing just to move the ball a few feet! The green graphics are very poor so unless you use the very confusing contour grid its like putting with a blindfold.
Summary: This game is one of the most frustrating I've come across. The game play and set up is great until you come to the greens. Putting seems a complete lottery and totally spoils everything else. It isnt that it is difficult , that would be fine, it is just that it is completely random. Basically you move the controller to access a power bar and then send your put on its way.
Summary: I already have Tiger Woods 08 on ps2 and then came TW 09 for Wii. And here is what it is like. When you arrive at the tee the drive is so easy. I mastered that in just two minutes and nothing is better than driving it 300 yds off the tee in the fairway. The iron shots are also wonderful but you either end up on the green or off the green. But it's not a problem. The wedges don't seem to be up to their usual self and then you are on the green and going for a par.
