We didn't think we'd be writing about new Wii Sports discoveries in 2021, but even the oldest games retain dedicated communities. After unseen E3 2006 footage came to light several weeks back, a new Wii Sports Golf glitch has just been discovered.
Found on February 18th, this was uploaded by YouTube account Plyd823. Having previously undertaken Wii Sports Golf speedruns – yes, you read that correctly – he revealed a new glitch that allows players to take shots from any location, even if it's out of bounds.
So, how does this work? If you disconnect your Wii Remote during a shot, your Mii character enters a "disconnected" state, inputting a new hit when reconnecting. This essentially tricks the game into thinking your shot landed on a fairway, even if it lands out of bounds.
By letting players take large shortcuts, we could be in for some ridiculous speedruns soon. You can check out the video for more details, and Gaming Reinvented has offered a full text breakdown, too.
Will you be trying out this Wii Sports Golf glitch? Let us know down below.
I miss this game.
I wish this was a Switch port.
Unrelated, but how many games are motion-controlled in 51 Clubhouse Games? (like Bowling)
Cool, but does this glitch also work in "Wii Sports Resort" or "Wii Sports Club"?
I'd say there's a likelihood the glitch is applicable to the Wii Sports Resort version since it's the same system and wasn't explicitly fixed in the v1.01 version.
But for the Wii U version it might've been addressed if anything like a "please reconnect your controller" prompt was added, in events of the battery running out.
Can't really be sure until you try though.
@LEGEND_MARIOID You could play Wii Sports Club on Wii U
@MaxlRoseGNR That is true. Yes. I have it on there. I meant I haven't played it in a long time.
This game seriously needs to be on switch or it needs a switch equivilent
Dame it nintendo life you made me think it was a wii sports port on the switch.
Nintendo tried Wii Sports Club first with Tennis and Bowling with Day and Club passes. Then came Wii Sports Club as a download with free passes. Confusion. So then a physical version came out but it was too late to repair.
Wii Sports Resort on the Switch would be nice. Swordfighting anyone?
so this is how my dad plays golf irl
The ball. Is in. The parking lot.
Would you like to reset to the fairway?
You have selected: no.
It's an unlikely scenario but not complex at all to do.
Reminds me of the gravity rotation glitch in Sonic Adventure, it only happens in one level, in one section, and can only be accidentally triggered by pausing the game and selecting to restart the stage.
But the game doesn't give you any reason to restart a level because it takes a life away so it's no different than just dying normally, so it's near impossible to trigger it by accident.
@TeamRocket47 Bowling and Darts. I believe that’s it.
So is there any simpler way to disconnect the Wiimote on command than pausing the game with the home button and choosing the "disconnect all" option (and then reconnecting it in a similar manner)? I suppose you can pop out a battery, but that would get in the way of your golf swing.
