GameSpy has posted their preview of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08.
"First, the putt mechanic is getting a critical change. Although the view and basic gameplay hasn't changed, you can no longer get an "ideal putt" view. Instead, hold the left bumper and you'll get a one-shot preview of where your putt, as currently set up, is going to go. Being able to only do this once is a great balancing decision, both in terms of difficulty and forcing people to just play their hole. As opposed to previous versions' caddy hints, where you had to carefully convert distances from metric measurements to the putt grid and laboriously insure the perfect shot, this simulates a golfer's ability to eyeball a putt while still demanding real skill. We'd like to see the number of previews be variable with difficulty, but it's still a solid change."
