Just in regards to turning off club suggestion. I have this always turned off when I play, as it makes me think about what club to use for each shot rather than just being on autopilot. While I understand why it feels like a pain in the ass, consider this. I can get from driver to putter in less than 2 seconds. Is it really that hard? Come on now, really?!

Give it more than just a round. I bet if you play through the entire tour you won't even be thinking about it anymore.

It's an unnecessary irritation and it's not needed IMO having club suggestion on doesn't help us with elevation or wind or lie, it's not needed sorry i really wanted to play this tour too.

Agree with this. I set up a tour not too long ago that had this setting off because I wanted to see what it was like. More annoying than realistic and it really didn't give me much to think about.

Calculating my shot distance is what I think about, the club i use is secondary depending on how much I want to loft it.

But I'm still playing this tour to the end. I'll be setting up another tour with these courses in a few more days with a different setup. Be ready :)

I still disagree. He said he really wanted to play this tour, but he won't because having to change the club every time is annoying. It literally takes less than 2 seconds to cycle through every single club. To me, 2 seconds is not enough to keep me from doing anything that I really want to do.

Obviously it isn't stopping me, I'm playing the tour. I'm just not a fan of that particular setting :)

To each his own though, if it's enough of an annoyance to make him not play, that's his choice. The annoyance outweighs his want. No biggie imo.

Started the first round of the tour yesterday. What a nice score Bent ;)
Agree with the fact that shot suggestion off is useless...but the tour is very challenging when i see all names here so i'll play all of it and try to be in the top ten ;)
Very please to see your ghosts on the greens  ;)

Thanks!  Round 2 did not go so well.  +5 but rebounded with a -6 (I think) on the third round.

I was playing catchup in both rounds - couldn't catch you in the first round and during the 2nd round I missed making birdie on the 18th (was 9 yards away for eagle ouch!) to be currently behind by 1 shot on Mojave.  Aced the 16th and birdied the 17th to make a good run at it.  Will try to knock off another course or two tonight.

2. Mojave -1
3. Wang Chung -4
4. Vulture -2
5. Crystal Canyons -3
6. Hoodoo -8
7. Coyote +2
8. Giza +1
9. Red Diamond -2

Total -23


I'll be looking to bounce back in the next tour, that was a horrendous performance :)

if you play tiger woods don't you have to change clubs when you play that.

OK, just wrapped up the tour and currently leading at -38.

I can't really say I disliked any of the courses, but I really liked a few of them.  Secret of Giza stands out for me just because there were so many holes where you had multiple choices of how to play them or the greens were accessible by inventive shooting, run ups, etc.  In particular, if anyone happens to play with my ghost ball, check out my shot on the drivable par 4.  I can't remember which number but it has water to the left and three or four bunkers to the right and a right to left sloping fairway.  Believe it or not it was exactly the shot I was trying to make but just didn't anticipate that good of a result.

Nice 60 on Red Diamond, taste!

Anyway, here's my scores.

Badlands (-10)
Mojave Palms (-7)
Chicken Tetrazzini (+3)
Vulture's Perch (-1)
TPC Crystal Canyons (-5)
Hoodoo Gulch (-9)
Coyote Run (+2)
Secret of Giza (-5)
Red Diamond (-6)

This was a very entertaining tour, for sure.

First two courses down and I wanna barf......I need to practice a lot more before doing one of these tours again....lol

No matter how bad my scores are, I'll keep pushing forward.

So far I like the layouts and how they play, they play fair, I just stink.

1) Badlands Golf Club +15 (I was all over the place on my putts and chips)
2) Mojave Palms Resort +8 (was getting better at putting but still was having problems)
3) Chizhi Tsheg +23 (WTF.....I really can't putt...omg)
