***BREAKING NEWS***

It's been over two weeks in the making.  Many hours poured into it and I'm finally able to unveil what I've been working on.  The new PGA Tour has two huge announcements!

1.  All systems supported (PS4, XBOX and PC)
2.  Two tours (PGA Tour/Web.com Tour) with cuts/promotions after each major - play your way onto the PGA Tour (or off of it!)

Details:
All Systems Supported:  Yes that's right!  I took a gamble and started this massive project before knowing the courses would be supported across all systems and it was the key to making this all work.  Well colour me tickled when that was confirmed.  So how will it work?  First of all I'll need to recruit some die hard TGC'ers (one or two from each of the PS4 and XBOX systems) who will act as Tournament Coordinators for their respective system.  They'll be responsible for creating the tournament in the game and for inputting their system's scores into the google spreadsheet.  I'll take care of the PC side.  And that's it!  The spreadsheet does the rest.  The rest of the golfers just have to play the tournament like normal.

Two Tours:  The PGA Tour will have the cream of the crop competing while the Web.com tour will allow those still working out the kinks in their game to have a tour that's closer to their skill level.  Each golfer is assigned a Pro/Am status.  If Pro you're on the PGA Tour and if Am you're on the Web.com tour.  All golfers start on the PGA Tour and after every major your Pro/Am status will update.  If your scores are good enough you keep your PGA Card.  On the other hand, if you struggle on the PGA Tour you will be sent to the Web.com tour where you'll have to work on your game to get your PGA Tour card back.

What's the magic number?  After digging around the PGA website I came up with an average score of 72.7 as the cut line.  If your season scoring average is over 72.7 after a major you'll be assigned to the Web.com tour.  If your scoring average is 72.7 or less you'll get a nice shiny PGA Tour card.  This is all displayed on the spreadsheet - in The Golf Club we are all still playing the same tournament (ie.  PGA Tour - Week 2).  NOTE:  There is a new page not in the link below that will show your scoring average and what your projected Pro/Am status is.  No pressure if you're on the bubble!

I'll be PM'ing some players from the PS4 and XBOX threads in the near future to see if they're interested in helping out.  If you are interested please PM me.  You need to be able to navigate your way around a spreadsheet (basic data entry - name and scores) or be able to send me a picture of the leaderboard from your system.

OK, enough talk - I've run a test season (all 12 weeks) with random data (and names for the most part) so if you want to see a preview of what's to come have a look here:  PGA Tour Beta Sheet.  NOTE:  The beta sheet has some bugs that have been fixed for the final version.  There were some issues with the promoting/demoting that was fixed by Week06.

All I need now are some golfers (from all systems!!)

PGA Tour - Week 2 is just days away.  If you haven't played Week 1 yet you still have until Monday at approx 8am est.

Hi guys.

Is it just me, or is there a problem with the Farmers Insurance tournament for rd1?  When I get on the tee, there are 100s of trees all over the fairway and the green, when I tee of my ball goes right through the fairway and makes a splash sound.  Also, my golfer is laying on his belly and swinging the club through the ground, basically the animation is rotated 90 degrees.

Unless the game was updated in the last few hours I'm going to have to go with it's just on your end.  I played my rounds last night with no issues.  Maybe try playing the course in single player mode (Great Lake Resort HD) and see if renders fine there?

It's in Tournament - slightly confusing.  But to pull off the PGA Tour each week's event has to be its own Tournament.  Also, I'm changing the name of the tour starting sunday.  The first week's tournament is called "TGC Tour - Week 1".  Follow this thread to see the details:  Click me!

Doyley well done on all this, this makes the game so much more exciting, and another thing now with the update we will all have same weather(i think) I don't get to play much anymore because of my work, but I will make it my business to play this :) Game does not need a career mode as some have asked, when you have awesome events like this and there is no stat build etc. so its anyone's game :)

Good luck all.
