Ok, let me start by saying I was frustrated for a day or two with the Kinect controls of the menus and in game changes. Once you get used to them though you can play this game and be addicted. If you change the shot difficulty to harder settings you will be playing a brand of golf that feels as good as a golf simulator. It will pick up all of your swing flaws. You must make a smooth and proper swing to get the best results. If you over swing the ball will go where it would if you were at the golf course. I am addicted to this game already. The putting and chipping takes some getting used to but gets easier and is pretty realistic. Especially the putting. The hardest part is setting up your shots to punch out of the woods or change your putting aim. If you aim a little further back of the hole on uphill putts the ball will roll out more. You can set the greens to fast and it will make you feel like you are putting at The Master's as your ball goes rolling by the hole on downhill puts. What fun.
***Here is the best part. I picked up a short weighted golf club called the SKILZ GOLF TEMPO AND GRIP TRAINER from skilz golf and am using it during Kinect play. It works great. I covered it with some black electrical tape and the sensor does not pick it up. The short club is pretty realistic and has a grip training grip on it. Costs under 20 bucks on amazon. This will enhance your game play ten fold. If you are a lefty you may be able to get one also . Another thing is if you want to face side on to the TV move your sensor of to the side of the TV on a stand or a stool or something and you can then at least stand on an angle to the TV sideways.
GOOD LUCK AND ENJOY...

Does covering SKILZ trainer with black tape really help?
