Need Sleep

I am so behind and it's all because of Tiger Woods.

I'm somewhat addicted to the Wii and the golf game I got for Father's Day. It is taking up a lot of my time.

Today I received an assignment back - not good news. I need to resubmit another one. It wasn't totally unexpected. I wasn't really happy with all of it.

Not a lot else to tell - I got my first hole in one on the Wii!

Okay, I'm going to bed now. I promise I'll catch up - especially with you Fel. I do read your blog most days, just like I read Ben's and David's and everyone else in my feed list. I don't find the time to comment a lot though. I'll try to rectify that--among other things.

Speak to you soon.



  1. congrats on the hole in one. I am looking forward to giving my family a wii for christmas this year. Sorry about the turn back on the paper. that really sucks. I got one today as well and nothing really sucks the life out you faster.

  2. God - my Wii golf is terrible, it's even worse than my crazy golf...

  3. Hi Miles!

    Thanks for taking the time to comment.

    I've become a Wii junkie and my golf is just starting to come good, but then it should with the amount of time I spend on it.

    What is part are you finding the most difficult, maybe I can help with how I got over certain issues.

    If the writers of Tiger Woods is reading (as if!) please consider putting in some way to study the lie of the green as part of the hole fly-by preparation. it is very frustrating to have to wait until I'm on the green before I find out which way the ball is likely to go. I'd much rather be able to aim for a particular spot to hopefully get a better (and easier) putt.

  4. It's my putting - for some reason, it's absolutely dreadful, I'm a very swish driver, but my putting, geez...they might as well stick a windmill in front of the hole...

    I'm really good at Wii tennis though!

  5. I'm terrible at Wii tennis. Bowling and golf is about it for me. Putting was my biggest bugbear. I figured out I can swing the putter pretty much at 80-90% regularly so then all I need to do is get the right putter in my hand. Tiger Woods 09 has a bad habit of giving you a putter that will either only just make it or will come up short if you're putting up hill. It does the opposite when you're putting downhill! If 100% of the put is either a touch short or only just there, move up to the next putter and strike the ball at about 75-80%. If downhill, drop down a putter and hit the ball at around 75%. Get it lined up fairly close before you use the putt view. If the 100% marker is a good two grid squares past the holoe on uphill putts, you should be good to go with the putter you have.

    Last night I discovered the game cheats. After the first round in a tournament, I had an 8 shot lead on the field and then suddenly in the second round people were posting ridiculously low scores. I got through the second and third round but my lead is bing cut each day. One round to go an I'm only up by two and I shoot close to 10 under a round. I led the last tournament for the first three days and then fell in a hole, or more to the point, the ball wouldn't. Nothing about my putting changed, it just wouldn't go in.

    Like I said, I think the game cheats to try and make it more of a challenge for the player.

    Let me know how you get on.

    Good luck.
