    Short Version: Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 with the Wii MotionPlus accessory is the closest you can get to a true golf simulation for $60.

  • Fake golf club holds 48 ounces of booze

    Drink-dispensing golf clubs aren’t new, per se, but this one just hit SkyMall’s new arrivals section so here it is for those of you who haven’t seen it before and are looking for a good way to sneak some booze onto your local golf course. Read More

  • Video: Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10's Disc Golf feature

    New to Tiger Woods PGA Tour on the Wii this year is the “Disc Golf” feature, which allows you to play all of the in-game courses as a disc golfer. I figured it’d be gimmicky at best. Well, I was wrong. It’s fun, and it’s a great use of the MotionPlus add-on. If you’ve ever played disc golf before, you’ll probably enjoy playing it in the game. If… Read More

  • Modular indoor putting green is like giving yourself 'The Stranger' but with golf

    One of the main problems with indoor putting surfaces is that the layout and hole placement never changes. So you get really good at one particular putt and then once you hit the course, your golfing buddies laugh at you and pull down your pants when you miss any putt that’s not ten feet away and dead straight. At least, that’s what my golfing buddies do and I can only assume the… Read More

  • Computer version of Tiger Woods to be browser-based, PC and Mac compatible

    EA is going the online-only route this year for the computer version of the Tiger Woods golf franchise, called Tiger Woods PGA TOUR Online. That’s good in the sense that it’ll be Mac compatible too, updates should be automatic, and you’ll be able to play from any computer. Read More

  • Doorstop helps improve your putting

    Clearly there’s gotta be some crossover between people who like golf and people who need to prop a door open or this $18 “Golfer’s Doorstop” would cease to exist. Read More

  • Quick Review: Tiger Woods PGA Tour for iPhone

    For ten bucks, Tiger Woods PGA Tour on the iPhone/iPod touch is absolutely, hands-down, the best deal going when it comes to portable golf games. Read More

  • Tiger Woods 10 will be bundled with Wii MotionPlus

    What’s the best way to encourage the adoption of strange video game accessory? Right, bundle it with a popular video game, like Nintendo did with the Rumble Pak and Star Fox 64 nearly 12 years ago. (God, 12 years!) Now EA is helping to ensure that the Wii MotionPlus isn’t a huge bust by shipping it with Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10. The game comes out this summer, but no North… Read More

  • Golf hole's tee box is 1,400 feet above the green

    The Legend Golf and Safari Resort in South Africa features a world-class golf course with each of the 18 holes designed by a different professional golfer. The true magic is found in the “Extreme 19th” hole, though, which is a 630-yard par three with a tee box that’s only accessible by helicopter and looms over 1,400 feet above the green. Read More

  • Golf Tech: Callaway’s new Diablo driver punches your slice right in the balls

    I’ve been playing golf off and on for about 20 years now and as a mid-handicapper, I’m prone to shooting in the low nineties thanks, in large part, to inconsistent tee shots. It’s no surprise that hitting your second shot from the middle of the fairway is a lot easier than hitting it from underneath a tree that’s located behind several other trees. And so we dance. I… Read More

  • Video: Tiger Woods 10 gameplay demo

    Hot damn, Tiger Woods 10 for the Wii is looking better and better all the time. Jason Shenkman, EA Sports’ Senior Producer for Tiger Woods 10, gives us a gameplay overview and talks about some of the new features for the MotionPlus-enabled game. Read More

  • Video: Sports tech at the Boston Golf Expo

    I spent an afternoon at the Boston Golf Expo this weekend and found a few interesting technology-enhanced products and services for your perusal. Please enjoy with my compliments. Read More

  • Golf: OnPar GPS unit looks pretty cool

    That OnPar GPS device that we caught wind of last week has been captured on video by Rob over at Golf Views. As far as golf gadgets go, this one’s bound to make a splash thanks to the very iPhone-like interface and what seems like a relatively straightforward user experience mixed in with some pretty interesting shot tracking and statistics features.

  • Golf: ‘OnPar GPS’ handheld due early next month

    Sure, it’s –65 out right now but it’s never too early to start thinking about golf. Savant GPS knows this and, as such, will unveil the “On Par” GPS unit in Orlando this weekend with retail availability slated for “early February.” Read More

  • CrunchDeals: Golden Tee Golf TV game for $9.94

    Fans of Golden Tee Golf might find a quick fix of the craptastic home version to be just what they need to tide them over between trips to the bar. I, myself, have been holding off on buying this little guy due to the $30+ price tag, the fact that there’s only one course, and the relatively mediocre user reviews. However, for $9.94 on clearance and with free shipping from… Read More

  • Last minute gift ideas: The UroClub

    No, no, no, no, no, no, no. Come on, man. The UroClub is a screw-top container shaped like a golf club that you urinate into behind a built-in privacy towel. NO! It’s a simple three step process, according to the UroClub web site: “Unscrew the UroClub’s triple seal, leak proof cap, clip the privacy towel to the UroClub and your belt or waist band, discreetly relieve yourself… Read More

  • Nitrogen-infused golf clubs mimic big swing speeds

    Above, please witness what I’d purchase if I were the type of person who’d spend $500 on a single golf club (I’m not). The PowerBilt Air Force One – by the same people who bring you Louisville Slugger baseball bats – has nitrogen inside of it. Nitrogen! Read More

  • Golden Tee championship to be held in Las Vegas

    Looks like all the wrinkly dollars you’ve fed into Golden Tee machines over the years could finally come back to you full circle (and then some) if you can take home the $20,000 first prize at the Golden Tee World Championship next week. Actually, you probably should have signed up by now. If you did, you’re fully aware that the championship will be held at the Las Vegas… Read More

  • Review: Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09 (Wii)

    Here’s one man’s opinion: Nintendo Wii, as a gaming system, was meant for golf. I would have bought the thing if it was called the Nintendo Golf Simulator back when it was released. Nintendo keeps releasing non-golf games for it, yet I just wait for one game every August. Tiger Woods 07, released in mid-March 2007, was a pretty good first crack at motion-based golf on the Wii.

  • Golf and bike GPS devices coming from Holux

    I’ve been doing okay with the yardage markers and sprinkler heads on the golf course but maybe someday when I retire — rich beyond my wildest dreams thanks to blogging – I’ll be able to work on my game to get to the point where I need to know the exact distance to the pin. That’s where the GR-130 from Holux will come in. Or there’s the GR-245 Bike GPS, a… Read More
