    Awesome! I'm so ready to cough up some bogies! I really enjoy taking the time to properly read the greens. The putting is tense when you have a good round going.

    No scout cam will make the use of a practice round very worth while.

    I just played a few holes today on McArthur Village and was noticing how nice the greens look without the grids on them.  Visually it makes the game look amazing.  Especially when you get the sun hitting them at just the right angle.

    I really enjoyed the no grid major this week, and I like the no scout camera that clv does. So put them both together and I think you are on a winner.  Looking forward to running up some high scores in the coming weeks!!!

     Although I have no clue how to play with or without a grid I am looking forward to it!  :o

    Do we get a few days after release for us console guys to figure out which end of the putter to hold??? ;D

    Man, I'm looking forward to this.  Just played my last round of no grid in Doyley's other tour. Dealing with a 9 mph wind and really grinded for a one under par round.  It's so maddening to miss a 5 foot birdie putt, but so exhilarating to sink a breaking putt of any distance.

    That six foot par putt, that's downhill and breaks a few inches...those are the 'pucker putts'

    OK i guess it helps to play-test the settings before I set them!  I'm playing a round now with grids off and scout camera off.  There's one big issue - I didn't realize I used scout camera on the greens. 

    There are two cameras you can use on the greens
    1.  Scout camera (Y button on Xbox, triangle on PS4) - this camera moves very fast and allows you to zoom in/out at quick speeds.  I use this with no grids extensively
    2.  Approach camera (B button on Xbox, circle on PS4) - this camera moves much slower and does not allow you to do quick sweeps of the green but you can do it slowly

    We can get by with approach camera but I really rely on scout camera to pick up the breaks with no grids.  I'm going to finish out my round with scout camera off and if I find it too slow I may have to re-insert scout camera to make the no grids bearable.

    I suggest some of you play a round under the proposed settings and report back on your experience.  I really want the no scout camera in for drives and approach shots - but not having it on the green is pretty close to a deal breaker at this point.  Let me know what you guys think.

    So I finished a few more holes with scout camera off and it's not as bad as my first impression.  There are still a few issues (using putting camera on long putts blurs the green/hole when viewing from behind the hole) but on short putts it works well enough.  You don't get the free camera roaming like the scout cam gives you but it's still good enough to let you see the breaks if you have a keen eye.

    Hopefully they can fix the blur effect on longer putts and adding the option to use the scout camera on greens only would be ideal.  Either way it looks like we're still good to go for No Grids/No Scout cam.
