Swing it or fling it.

It works well either way with "Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10" for the Wii.

Those tired of hitting the digital links with a set of clubs can now tackle the game’s courses with flying discs. Both methods work very well thanks to the addition of the Wii MotionPlus.

The attachment adds only an inch to the length of the Wii’s motion-senstive remote, but it adds quite a bit to its precision. The new gadget, which comes bundled with some copies of "PGA Tour," detects twists, turns and speed far better than an unassisted remote.

This is essential to getting the wrist action right for throwing a Frisbee, but it also helps when whacking a ball with a driver or putting.

I have to admit that I didn’t notice a huge difference in most aspects of my play at first. However, it became very obvious when I played through a game using one character with the MotionPlus and the other without it. On almost every hole, I cut strokes off my score when using the attachment. In fact, around the sixth hole, the game detected that I my non-MotionPlus character was having some trouble and offered to dial back on the difficulty.

I found MotionPlus incredibly helpful when I needed to draw or fade, but was quite pleased with the new Precision Putting mechanism, too. This puts a greater emphasis on the backswing and follow-through.

Traditional golf is only one option here. Of course you can play through the courses using flying discs, but you can also try your hand at a variety of golf-related mini-games.

Also, in addition to adding more golfers and courses, EA has incorporated real-time weather into the game. Thanks to the Weather Channel, you can now blame your bad putts on the wet green if it’s actually raining in Augusta, Ga.

How could it get any more real? Perhaps next year, they’ll link "PGA Tour" to the Wii balance board so you can get the feeling of walking to the next tee.
