I have tried EVERYTHING people on this board have suggested and that I could think of myself. I have...
1. Turned the PS3 off for minutes at a time
2. Pushed the small, reset button on the SIXAXIS controller
3. Turned the SIXAXIS controller off then on again
4. Reassigned the SIXAXIS controller to another port
5. Bought a BRAND NEW SIXAXIS controller to see if that would help, it did the same thing with the new controller
6. Hooked up my old PS2 controller to my PS3 via a USB adapter and tried to play with that, still had the problem
Again, for those who don't know what I'm talking about, I bought Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds today for PS3. My SIXAXIS controller worked fine thoughout every part of the game (selecting different options, etc) except to when I actually try to hit the ball during a round and when I push "X" it doesn't recognize it until seconds later, there is some sort of lag. I ended up taking the game back, because it's impossible to play the game if you can't get the right impact you want during a shot. I also had the same problem when I tried to play Hot Shots Golf Fore for PS2 on my PS3, there was a lag when you pushed "X" to hit the ball. Also, my SIXAXIS controller works fine for every other game I have, High Velocity Bowling, Resistance: FOM, NCAA 2008, etc. It's just this one specific part to this one specific game that it won't work for me. And unless I'm missed it, I didn't see any sort of "controller settings" option in the game itself. Maybe it's something I have to change on the desktop of the PS3, but I've looked all through that too, and I can't find anything that would correlate to my problem. It's very annoying because I was very much looking forward to play the game. I know I've already asked this, but if anybody can help, I'd appreciate the suggestions. Thanks guys!

Delete all the files from Hotshots (the install file)
REINSTALL Hotshots again
if that doesn't work go to the store you bought it from and get an exchange for another copy and reinstall that one.

Some TVs have millsecond lags, which may not be noticible on other games that don't require such precise button presses.
if you really want to know, hook it up to another tv - or best yet, take the game to a friend's house and give it a go.

Triton, I think the problem may be the combination of using "traditional" shots (with the horizontal power meter at the bottom of the screen) and some TVs. The problem stems from the power meter cursor moving fast enough that the inherent input (button) lag on some TVs becomes evident. Most HDTVs have some input lag (usually about 1 frame per second), but it is usually unnoticeable. Only games where precision movements (like a fighting game or FPS) or ones with timing meters (sports and music games) really show the lag. Rear projection TVs usually are the worst offenders, with several frames per second lag. I have an older 40" Samsung LCD HDTV that has about 2-3 frames per second lag and it makes playing "trad" quite challenging in HSG: OOB. On many newer TVs, you can switch to a "Game Mode" that will reduce the incredible amount of video processing that HDTVs produce to make the picture look so vibrant. I would suggest one of the following:
a) Try hooking up your PS3 to a different TV to see if it makes a difference.
b) Try using your TVs "Game Mode".
c) Try using "Advanced" shots.
