Jed Pressgrove from Fate of the Game says: "Wii Golf completely justifies the existence of motion control. Simply put, the Wiimote made me like golf. Oh sure, I still have zero interest in playing a Tiger Woods or Mario golf game, I still haven’t played a real round of golf, and I still can’t bring myself to watch professional golf. But I do have more respect for the sport after playing the 9-hole Wii Sports version countless times, as ridiculous as that sounds. And I might be crazy, but Wii Golf helped me get through a, let’s say, mid-twenties malaise."
