Quite and exhaustive piece of work the author compiled there... I was impressed!  As for his #1... I somehow missed the boat on that one, but in my case it was mostly due to my inability to embrace follow cam.  If they had been able to get Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13's True-Aim camera to work in '14, I'd still be playing it (in Tour mode, not Simulation mode... I never made a sensual connection which required a diagonal stick motion to produce a straight shot that Simulation difficulty required).

TW10 with TW11 TrueCam and TW14's graphics and content on Xbox One and I would be a happy camper....

That's as good an illustration as I've been able to find as to how the new tempo swing component affects shots.  It's showing the new swing, but not the new swing animation, which I think will cast it in a much more favorable light.  I can start to get a hint of how the tempo component will engage more of the senses and perhaps make it feel more like striking a shot in real life.

Where was Links 2004    :o                             and TW10 would be in my top 3  for the fantastic precision putting among other things

edit: corrected link from jcauthens post.

Thanks... I went back and corrected the original myself after reading this.  I have no clue how I got that link copied in there... I was reading the article when I copied the addy.  I blew it somehow though...

What I would love to see is a video of a few iron shots into greens at different lengths that aren't using the lofting option to control the length of each shot. Either by swinging slower or using a three quarter length swing.

I would like to see them control the length of shot by the length of your backswing which was something i could do on the Tiger games

Have you actually read any of the tutorials, tips posts?

Talked to any of the top players to find out if there is somthing your missing?

Or is it just easy  to blame the mechanics that others have figured out?

Absolutely right Anquila. This is by far the best golf game I've played and I've played them all over the years. By game I mean playing and designing. Played Rory for a few months last year but came back here and TGC2 will be a real bonus hopefully when it arrives. 'Garbage' seems a bit strong to me but everyone entitled to their opinion I suppose.
