Wii – I’m improving my game July 29, 2008

I play golf, I’m lousy at it, but I play golf. The main reason to why I haven’t really improved, a least I think so,  is that I only play 3-5 times a year. The last couple of years I have played to a handicap around 48, which I’m not entirely satisfied with.

But in november 2007 we got a Nintendo Wii at work, so people can play in their lunchbreak and after work. I have played a lot of golf on the Wii, and on the Wii like in real life, I have a really bad slice. So game after game on the Wii, during the winter, I have tried to correct this slice, and I have succeded. So a little month a go, when I was out playing my first real game of golf this year, to my big surprice, I did in real life as I did on the Wii, and my slice was almost gone. Now I have played a couple of more games, and each time to a handicap around 40 and almost without slicing. With this in mind, I have played a lot of Golf on the Wii for the last week, to prepare for the next game of real golf, which will be on sunday. This time I have focused on controlling my swing speed, to be more persistent. Hopefully It pays off.

I just thought I would share this mini epiphany of mine, and I will report on the result of the next game.

I am playing Tiger Woods 2008 (and 2009) which both have some detection of slice/fade and hook/draw in them.
