I rented this game tonight, and I really like it so far. I went to the new Rivals mode, and I've had fun tearing apart the competition. I'm doing this with the putting, which is thankfully improved from two years ago (I didn't buy or play TWPT 2005, so I'm going off of the 04 edition).
The putting is controlled just like the regular swing. Basically you adjust the power with the analog stick, and it has made putting 100 times easier. I went straight to the Putting contests vs. the computer players and killed most of them. It's almost too easy, as I sunk an 85 foot putt with ease.
I love playing through the eras of golf in Rival mode as well. It adds a new dimension to the game.
So, anyone else play the new Tiger Woods game? Or are you all waiting for the game to come out on the XB0X 360?
Overall, I'd recommend at least a rental of this game.

I dunno... I LOVE the TW series, but 06 hasn't totally clicked for me yet. The presentation feels a little off, but maybe I'm still adjusting to it.
The Rivals mode is a nice twist to the career mode, though. The putting? I like the change, but I'm still struggling to master the swing physics. It does seem to be more challenging this year, so I'll likely get more mileage out of it.
If anyone missed this the 1st time around, I can't recommend it highly enough. It is still very playable today. I haven't played through it in about a year, but I was glad I have a PS3 that is backward compatible.
