Yeah   ... it would be good to replicate the rough in these links courses in #2     ... the various long grasses , bushes etc

Can't see it happening  .. along with pot bunkers  ..

Yes i agree real shame with pot bunkers,£29 price pre order not expecting much to change,maybe better looks which would help the courses and change of gameplay which should suit RCR i hope.

Well Birkdale is the 1st major 3 weeks after release of TGC2,So Hopefully this will be a nice showcase for RCR for TGC2,Getting some interest from
Birkdale twitter feed so all good at the moment.Little Bit shocked they couldn't get TGC2 out in time for US Open,Very little rain so far ths year in UK Course very dry at moment and not a lot of high rough.Still time for that to change.

Very little rain until I decide to take this week off work and all it does is rain, grrrrr.

On topic, really looking forward to this, I love your RCRs.

If TGC2 doesn't deliver new capabilities for longer/deeper rough or fescue, as well as bunker improvements...i'll be very disappointed.

View from the Arnold Palmer plaque winner in 1961,will be sadly missed this year,Hole is normally played against the wind without the wind not really a hard hole in today's modern standards.


Paddy harrington playing same shot today



Par 3 4th Tee is highest point on the course

2nd hole Played really tough in 2008 Wind was blowing a Gale in face,With little wind a birdie chance just 2 bunkers to look out for of Tee.





11th Hole Now not the longest again but a great looking hole from the Pro tee right hand side of 10th green,8th fairway to the Right.Need to be left hand side of fairway to a tricky back right pin.

Final one for a bit 500 yard par 4 13th,small water hazard runs down the left hand side,i wonder if this will come into play in TGC2.

Feels like you are slightly conservative with the elevations? And it's really a shame you don't have the correct bunker faces in the designer.

Magnificent work!

Yes real shame a golf Game not got pot bunkers,but again 100 different people would like 100 different things.The height pic on the 16th is from the tee Height not were that point is on the fairway just how the pic is taken,same as the 11th its 24-25 ft to fairway then up to green just on pic taken as overall distance,Elevations not got alot to go on apart from TW14 and Pics and Videos,The 4th Birkdale website says 30ft down to green,TW14 had it at 12ft,At 30 ft down with size of tee cannot see the green so in the end got to go what you feel is best to play in game.just to get the feel of birkdale never will get it perfect.

I find elevations in TW'14 a bit odd, they just don't make sense sometimes. A shot playing to FW will claim -10' but then the corresponding shot to the green doesn't have the proper elevation to jive with the total tee to green that is expected. I feel EA just threw together courses for the most part, they may look similar but they didn't spend extensive time with elevations. That said you have to work with what info you have and TW is a good a source as any since you assume they had good data with the licenses. Looking great yeltz!

It's like some of the pin positions in TW14 due to the better ball physics in that game some of there pins unplayable in this game,Plus you got 4 or 5 firmness setting to choose from and pins,So looking forward to the different pin positions and hopefully firmness setting so maybe set up a cours ehow you want to,but got a feeling firmness setting may be locked.

My elevation comment was more in regards to the dunes around the greens, comparing to the pictures.
