i am gettin g it on release day like i have. the new screens and vids for it look so good. wish they would make a fantasy course and make a mock up of Augusta in it since they will never license it out. having the trainer seems like it will be good. i wish they would add some features such as instead of l;eveling your power up you havd to level up each indiviual club, level up coming out of sand,rough and more.
for the straight shots i had problems with it too for awhile,,its all about timing,,going fully back and taking that millisecond stop at the top of your arc then swinging seemed to cure it for me, i rarely hit bad shots now and i am on a dif golfer whos attributes are all in mid 30's
try that if you play a little 08 before 09 comes out
