Game Informer writes, "It seems there's always a new golf tip to learn. Just ask Larry David. The problem is that they aren't always good. You try many out, only to find that most of them don't improve your game. EA has made some slight tweaks this year to what I think was the best Tiger ever – Tiger 08 – but, like those golf tips, they don't improve the game. Luckily, this title still knows how to stroke the ball."
