Tiger Woods 10 to feature real-time 'Play the Pros' mode

Tiger Woods 10 for the Wii is shaping up to be a killer game. Yes, I’m getting my hopes up and yes, Tiger Woods ’09 let me down but this — fingers crossed — might be the year that everything finally falls into place. The graphics look nicer, there are a ton of new features, and the addition of the MotionPlus peripheral ought to push the entire motion-controlled golf experience up at least a few notches.

IGN.com has a couple new videos up today. One showcases new golfers Anthony Kim and Rocco Mediate, plus the following new golf courses: Banff Springs, Bethpage Black, Hazeltine, Oakmont, Pinehurst, Torrey Pines, and Turnberry.

The other video (shown below) details a feature called Live Tournaments, which consists of daily and weekly stroke-based competitions that you play against every other Tiger Woods 10 owner along with a Play the Pros mode that allows you to compete against professional golfers in real time when a particular real-life tournament is being played on a course that’s in the game.


I’ve always thought it’d be cool to have a real-life Play the Pros feature where the professional golfers’ actual shots were plotted along the course in real time so you could, for instance, virtually play alongside your favorite golfer while he plays in a real tournament. This new feature in Tiger Woods 10 seems to be a good first step.
