Nike's endorsement of Tiger Woods, the most prominent face in golf, dates back to when he first began his professional career in 1996. Since then, shoe technology has evolved tremendously, thanks to the development of new design materials that have made footwear lighter and more comfortable. To th...

EA Sports' 15-year relationship with PGA Tour cover athlete Tiger Woods has ended. In a post on the company's blog, Vice President and General Manager of Golf Daryl Holt said that the split was a mutual decision and wished Woods continued success. While this isn't on the scale of, say, separating ...

The PlayStation Move. It's funny to think just 15 months have passed since Sony first unveiled its motion controller, and now we're mere weeks away from hitting the retail market. To be sure, it's not like the company didn't have waggle on the mind already -- patents dating as far back as 2005 reve...

It may not seem quite as impressive now that Microsoft and Sony have shown off their visions of a motion-controlled future, but Nintendo's Wii MotionPlus is still as good as it gets when it comes to consoles today and, as promised, it's now finally shipping alongside the latest Tiger Woods game. T...

Say it with us now: "Phew!" When Nintendo announced that its Wii MotionPlus dongle would be hitting US shelves on June 8th, we all wondered why Wii Sports Resort (Nintendo's first MotionPlus-enabled title) was set to ship over a month later. Now, EA Sports has relieved worries that early adopters ...

For players who wrestle with the virtual greens, Electronic Arts has announced a way to better your game while on the go. The newly launched mobile version of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09 includes a feature called Console Boost, which (as you might have guessed from the all-too-descriptive title) gives X...

As a couple of you astute readers have noticed (thanks!), Madden NFL '08 and Tiger Woods PGA Tour '08 are now available on the Apple Store, just a little over a month after they were released for PC and consoles last August. A month isn't too bad for Mac ports-- at least the football season is sti...

We couldn't help but giggle when we saw this article on "facial yoga" that described it as the hot new craze. It's certainly not new to us DS hipsters; after all, we've already got a game dedicated to stretching and firming our faces, and since the practice is apparently the latest it-exercise (de...

Ever play a game of Tiger Woods 08 and say to yourself, "self, I've put in three weeks of my life into this game and I still haven't maxed out my player's skills. Self, I want my player's abilities maxed out ... if only there were a way to bypass actually playing the game do so". If that sounds fami...

Of this week's U.S. releases, there's really only one title of note for us: Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08. The golfing genre of games has always captivated us, as we enjoy driving and putting on virtual fairways and greens, but in the real world we couldn't swing a club to save our life. Will you be hitt...

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 in...

We have to cop to being just a little bit ignorant of golf games. It's never been moved to a street or played by a league of mutants, so we have a hard time separating it from the herd. Honestly, it's a good thing that Mario's played it, or else all our golf knowledge would be drawn from Billy Mad...

There's really something mesmerizing about video game golf. Maybe it's the laid back pace or the simple nature of the game, but a good round of video game golf is just satisfying. We are, of course, talking about Outlaw Golf, one of the finest golf simulations ever to grace a gaming console. We ima...

After several great weeks for releases, we're back down to a lighter list. We can only guess that sometimes, they have to do this -- so we can afford to save up for all the other games we want! But hey -- maybe you guys are secretly lusting for Garfield's Nightmare. If so, please, tell us all about ...

The Gamertag Radio guys every so kindly wrangled up a few newly released Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08 screenshots that hit the web today. And, as a bonus, they smell like freshly cut grass! Cool huh? Our overall impressions are that the screens show off PGA Tour 08's soothing lighting effects and nice f...

Tiger Woods attempts to recreate his famous "Golf Trick" ad with a Wiimote, and all we can think is, "That's no way to treat a Wiimote!" Although he did have the wrist strap on, if you notice, we don't think it's good to be smacking balls around with it like that.. A slap in the fac...

As if the last commercial wasn't brilliant enough, the marketing minds behind, well ... marketing Tiger Woods' latest game on the Wii have done it again. This time, they parody one of Tiger's most well-known commercials: his Nike spot where he bounces the ball on the end of a club before driving th...
