Bug causes Tiger Woods to choke, then freeze

In their review of Tiger Woods 08, TeamXbox discovered a troublesome bug that caused the game to freeze between the second and third hole. The bug pretty much locks up the player's console forcing them to complete a good old fashioned reboot. So, the TeamXbox gang contacted EA to get some insight into the bug problem and EA confirmed that they knew about it and already created a patch which is currently sitting with Microsoft certification. And until the patch passes through certification and gets rolled out, EA advises Tiger Woods 08 players to "hold down the A button while launching the game from the dashboard" to prevent such bug from making an unwelcome appearance. Next time Tiger will be getting a flea and tick shampoo before he makes it to store shelves.
