EA talks about Tiger Woods '09

About so high, likes golf. Still.

EA has popped up plenty of information about what will be in the 2009 Tiger Woods golf game.

PS3, 360 and Wii versions will all have coach Hank Haney on hand to help you and give you feedback and training drills based on your performance in competitions.

You will be able to use a Club Tuner to customise your stick collection, and your created characters will match your skill level so you're not always starting completely from scratch. Your skills will both increase and decrease depending on how you do throughout your career, though.

Online you can play simultaneously with up to three of your chums; you see their shots superimposed next to yours, but there is less waiting around to do.

PS3 and 360 versions let you challenge your friends to things like who has the longest drive or who can get closes to the pin on GamerNet, plus you can record it all and leave it on loop at parties or something like that.

Meanwhile, the Wii has its wacky motion-sensing controls that you can adjust to your skill level, presumably turning the stabilisers off if you are a pro sofa-golfer.

It also has its signature mini-game Party mode for you and your family. Or friends. But probably family.

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09 is due out in August on 360, PS3, PS2, PSP and Wii.
