I have been so frustrated playing with friends the last couple of years, everybody else playing is seeing the shots more or less as they happen.
With me it has been, "did you make it?" "still seeing your golfer waggle in the fairway" "I'll have to disable then enable turn enabled" "I'll just change rivals, remove you then add you back" Just constant waiting and messing about in the menus.

Today I put my router in "modem" mode (I just googled - how to putt my router in modem mode), plugged the ethernet cable from my PS4 into the main ethernet port on my router, nothing happened, I couldn't get an internet connection at all.
I then powered down completely my PS4, then rebooted the router/modem, booted up my PS4 and I had connection and a NAT type 1  :D
I then decided to see if anything had changed. I played a round with Furzoo at Lytham and it went very smoothly, just as good as it has been playing on PC. I didn't have to wait once in 18 holes, that's never happened before.

I've only played one round so far, so it's not definitely solved, but it is looking good.

Now I have to hope that if I run all of my network devices though a switch, they will all work at the same time? I'm ordering another ethernet cable to see if that will work.

That's the only problem at the moment, whether I will have to manually switch cables etc, every time that I want to play multiplayer on PS4?

I am not sure if it would solve this problem but yea playing with a open NAT is a good thing for online gaming.

NAT 1 = Wired connection
NAT 2 = Wireless
NAT 3 = Usually means a bad port config.

I'll have to check at home what NAT-type my console is currently running on.

Not sure anymore... but it's NAT1 if I remember correctly.

If you are wired then it will be NAT 1. If you are wireless it will be NAT 2.
