Oh my god, I also suck at Playstation Golf. I couldn't sleep last night so I teed up Tiger Wood 2005 on the PS2. Playing in Tour Difficulty mode I totally stunk it up shooting 13 over at Harbor Town. I played in regular mode and shot 6 under and missed the cut. So sad, so pathetic.
Tour difficult mode removes the caddy tip - without which the game suddenly becomes very, very hard.
How pathetic. If I'm not even good at video game golf, what chance do I have in the real world?

I managed to hit a few balls at the Norwalk Golf center and set up a mini-putting area in my basement so far - but basically winter stinks worse than I am at golf.
The Norwalk golf center is pretty amazing however - they have a simulator, a ton of bays with computers and cameras and a full bunker. My girls are doing a girl scouts/LPGA thing so they can learn to stink at golf too - and while they were getting lessons I hit a bunch of balls on my own.
Seeing yourself on video is odd - my swing really isn't that bad but I have literally no power - something to work on for next spring. It would be nice to be able to hit the ball another 30 yards or so - there's no reason why I shouldn't be able to hit the ball 250 yards with a driver (or more to be honest). I'm capping out at around 225/230 and think it has to do with my hips not opening soon enough.
Maybe I should get some real lessons!
