"Unlike most other sports, golf doesn’t really have any other gaming series beyond Tiger Woods. The series has been consistently excellent, earning praise and accolades for its accurate representation of the game; yet, since there’s no other golf series trying to supplant it, you might wonder if the series would ever hit its middle-aged golfing years. Note that I’m not talking about Tiger’s middle years, but someone like Vijay Singh or Ernie Els. You still see them playing, signing autographs, and trying to win, but you can recognize when they’re going through the motions. With this year’s version, developer EA Tiburon has added Kinect functionality and a new swinging system, and the result comes this close to reaching the level of the game’s famous namesake."
