Levinator25 on YouTube found an interesting glitch with EA's golf title, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2008. The glitch would allow gamers to walk on water to perform a "Jesus shot" without having a water hazard penalization.

In a very brilliant response from EA they've come up with a video depicting Tiger Woods himself actually making the "Jesus shot". Way to go EA, I'm amused.

Original video showing the glitch:

    EA is now just accepting the fact that their games are not polished enough and now putting effort into making it seem like they polish the game up nicely.

      Are you ignorantly making that statement or are you joking? If the former, have you had experience making a game, or, do you at least realize how complex it is? No matter what game you play there will obviously be bugs. Hence patches. I've never seen any company state that their game is absolutely bug free.

      I think EA / Tiger Woods is expressing a great sense of humor with this situation.

        Agreed! No game is perfect..I wouldn't want it that way, anyway. Developers are human, too.
        I think its great they're making light of it.

        I have to agree, if there wasn't any flaws or bugs there won't be any development or advancement in games or anything in the world. In fact you could say having those bugs are the best thing, the devs will see the mistake and know not to make in the future. And fix it with a patch.

    xD Brilliant.

    Nice way to cover up a glitch that shouldn't have been there in the first place, though.

    That was... Definitely weird. Who does Woods think he is, Jesus Christ?

    But wow. Tiger Woods replying to a YouTube user in such a over-the-top way... It's gotta be some kinda record.

    You have got to give EA some credit for that one though. Now, if they would just make a game I was actually interested in, I might actually buy something from them.

    Every game's got it's bugs, this one in no way an exception. However, I do think that EA's video response to the glitch was quite humorous.

    HA! Very funny I wonder if Tiger Woods is related to Jesus in any way.

    Making fun of your own questionable mechanics and paying celebrities to play along is a VASTLY superior solution as opposed to fixing it. You'll remember that shit for years! Kudos to EA!
