TeamXbox has posted an interview with Tim McDowd, Producer of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 06.
TeamXbox: "Will players still have the ability to add “aftertouch” to their shots with the new Dual Analog system?"
Tim McDowd: "Absolutely. While the core swing mechanic is done through pre-shot controller movement with the analog sticks, players will still have the ability to add additional spin to their shots during ball flight through the “Spinna” button."

Unbelievable... I'd be ashamed to have to go on record as touting the "Spinna" button as a feature! This is an abomination, and yet another example of how EA Sports seems to be ignorant of the fact that there is an untapped console golf simulation market out there. We may be in the minority, but we are here EA!

I'm still holding out hope that this year's TW game will finally make a turn for the better. The dual analog stick control sounds like a step in the right direction, but I still have strong suspicions about the putting and chipping interface. If you've seen the videos at teamxbox.com, it looks like the golfers are still taking full putting strokes at all distances!!?? Links 2004 did a reasonably good job at proportional putting control, why can't the Tiger Woods series not do this?? The new putting grid system will make it more difficult to align a put, but if we're still going to set a distance before the stroke and then flail away with 100% stick movement, where's the feel... the intuition!? Grrrrrrr!!......
