''EA certainly isn't resting on its laurels this year with regard to its line-up of sports titles. It seems that all its major titles are receiving pretty big enhancements. The problem the Tiger Woods team has is that last year's game already included a pretty massive new feature in the shape of GamerNet. This user generated challenge system will of course be improved upon in this year's 09 edition, but having already made quite a leap on this generation of consoles is there anything else left to wow gamers with? We got some hands-on time with the PS3 version of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09 to see if some new behind the scenes features revolutionise golf video games.
EA's focusing on the inclusion of Tiger's coach Hank Haney, who appears in the game to offer advice and help you improve your abilities. New players are greeted by Hank straight away. Key to this year's game are your ever changing attributes. After hitting a couple of drives and approach shots he tests your short game from around the green and finally your putting. This then gives you a rating in four key areas: driving, accuracy, short game and putting. From this point on every ball you hit goes towards your ability ratings.''
