Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 received "mixed or average" and "generally favorable" reviews, according to review aggregator Metacritic. [28] [29] [30] [31]

Many critics praised the PlayStation 3, Wii and Xbox 360 versions for impressive graphics and smart gameplay. The experience and upgrade system, however, led Tycho of Penny Arcade to say "Tournaments that don't normalize player statistics aren't skill competitions... they're time competitions, measuring not the quality of your leisure hours but the volume", [32] and Gabe, "You can not compete unless you put the time in." [33]

According to NPD for the month of June, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 for Wii sold 272,400 units in North America, outselling Wii Fit in its debut month, putting it in fourth place for the month in overall sales. [34] The game did not make the top 10 positions for other platforms according to NPD June sales.
