One thing I'm learning from my Elite 2 adventures with TGC 2019 is that it perhaps accentuates the differences between the 30 FPS swing animation on the XBox One X and the 60 FPS swing animation I get on my gaming PC, even more than the stock controller.  I'm starting to play TGC 2019 more on the PC again now that "The Old Goats" Society (a bunch of JNPG long-timers looking for something new) has come into being and that 60 FPS swing has me going making more tempo errors than before, with my 25%  "Instant Sensitivity" curve setting I use on the XBox One X.

Maybe I need to create a unique profile for TGC 2019 XBox One X and another for TGC 2019 PC?  Either that or perhaps just give up the 60 FPS on the PC version and lock 'er in at 30 FPS on the PC version?

I've tried the smooth and the aggressive curves, and they definitely are a detriment to my tempo in this game.  By their nature though, I didn't really expect either of them to work for me. 

I'm a tweaker/fiddler, so this is like cooked crack to me, but sooner or later, I'm going to have to settle on something and ride with it.

I'm still torn about how to tune my Elite 2 controller for TGC 2019 with my XBox One X.  Tempo management remains my big challenge.  When I adjust my stick tension to medium, I tend to get more consistent tempo results; however, that increased stick tension causes me to lose feel with the putting stroke force, and I tend to run a lot of putts well past the hole.

I'm back to light (1) stick tension, with the "instant" sensitivity graduation set to the second graduation from the left.  I might experiment with this curve setting degree some more, but I still think I might putt better with the default sensitivity (meaning linear) setting.  I can change that in a heartbeat with the profile pushbutton on the controller, but I'd have to remember to do it every time if I wanted to fully rely on it.

John. I think you’re frustrating yourself with it.  Just when you get it set exactly where you want it something will physically loosen up or change with the controller or your swing itself will change and you’ll be back at square one.
With my Elite 1 I have never changed the stock setting and I think we have adapted to each other which is the perfect symbiosis IMO.
IRL you must adapt to the clubs you have and the course conditions, so why shouldn’t it be the same with a controller?  Just my opinion though and I offer it only to possibly save you some frustration.

RMD, I was content with the default tension setting in my Elite 1, and the default sensitivity curve.  For some reason, I can't get the same feel with the Elite 2.  I'm going to leave the Elite 2 on default tension and work around that, as I've come to recognize that I need more help with my putting game.  I missed 3, sub three foot putts in a round yesterday, along with a 5-putt green from 61 feet!

I'd still rather have a working Elite 1 controller than the Elite 2... it just felt and worked better for me, but I'll take the Elite 2 over any of my stock XBox One controllers for dang sure! :)

I looked and you can get a recertifications one from Newegg and there’s also some used ones on eBay.......

I looked into that RMD, and almost went in that direction (Newegg), but then the 'gotta have the latest tech' bug bit me and I spent $30 more for the Elite 2.  I'm really frustrated that I can't repair whatever is causing the left trigger to think it's always being squeezed problem with my Elite 1.  I successfully replaced the shoulder button switch arms after I dropped the controller and broke the right switch arm, almost 3 years ago.  This business with the left trigger just doesn't show a root cause.

I completely understand your comment “ gotta have the latest tech bug”....

I wound up settling on the default settings, which include the lightest (as in stock XBox One controller) tension setting for my Elite 2 controller in TGC 2019.  I can hit the ball straighter, overall, by going with the medium tension setting, but my misses when using it are due to not hitting the tempo as consistently.  Tempo errors often lead to more off-target shots than 'off swing path' errors.

I also found the putting to be too hard to manage with anything higher than the lightest stick tension setting.  I ran a lot of putts way too far past the hole because of the loss of touch in medium or firm settings.
