Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2001 is one of the best golf games out there because it provides an entertaining and realistic golfing experience. If you're looking for a quicker way to get a tee time, then definitely focus, and get around to playing this game.
As good as it is, Tiger's latest offering still doesn't have the polish and pick-up-and-playability to overtake the genuine champ of PlayStation golf-Hot Shots Golf 2. Golf fans who don't like the cartoon style of Hot Shots Golf 2, or who want to play on real courses against real players, will enjoy taking a swing with Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2001.

Although I think EA has to get some new golfers on the roster, the shot-shaping controls and varying pro stats make this title a must-play for golf fans.

Tiger Woods 2001 has some good points. The new game modes are fun to play. However, the repackaged graphics and sound just don't improve significantly over last year's version. In some respects they are worse. While the play mechanics haven't changed much, they have taken a step away from this title being a simulation.
This is a challenge and the controls are suspect, but the graphics are terrific. If you want to play a golf game, you may want to stick with a PC version, or go with another multi-player capable versions (like Cyber Tiger).
The game's a solid golf game that should please the fans of console golf sims, but not those that are into deeper sims on the PC or more arcade-oriented efforts like Hot Shots Golf.
Unless the new uniform look that EA Sports has adopted for all its sports games and the addition of Tiger Control really get your motor running, there is little to attract players to the game. Those simply looking for a good PlayStation golf game are better off looking at the Hot Shots series than picking up this antiquated, middle-of-the-road golf game.
