I was struggling with my drives&out of the ruff always slicing with perfect tempo,on the xbox &playing on tour with normal control set up.&I put on this forum moaning about it.i just wanted to apologise to all who read it&hold my hands up as it was my fault all along.skimming stones gave me great advice about moving stick from 7 to 1 o clock to hook the opposite to what I thought would cure a slice.now i have played about 8 rounds &no problem &I understand the controls far better.i found a happy meduim to keep the ball straight.i feel like a complete prat as was my fault all along&I am really sorry I complained so sorry hb plus everyone else.i am a muppet ;).i hope this might help someone else &put the record straight

I don't think you have anything to apologise for,i still can not play this game on xbox,but really enjoying my sand trap rounds on ps4,So its down to a controller if you enjoy the game or not,I still think there's a problem on xbox either controller wise or game wise but in the end i have given up on it just hope others on xbox have not done the same.

2 eagles on a long par 4 in the Sand trap event (same hole),i can play game but not on xbox

Just shot a 62 so going pretty good here on Xbox. Friend list has a lot guys playing and seeing some low scores.  Feel for guys having issues but maybe it isn't just the controller. I don't know.

99% of the time I am fine now.if the course has alot going on it can sutter a few times which can be annoying.i really hoped they might patch it to optimize the performance a bit for courses like that.but apart from that any mistakes are mine now I think I can now swing straight most of the time with tour set.really hoping the scorpio will make the game run a little better so won't struggle on those few courses.

Yep never understood the issues people seem to have with just XB. 

Is it more difficult than other platforms?  No doubt since we don't have a straight edge to run our mouse against and obviously the PS4 controller much more forgiving but I don't have any complaints on XB......my newest XB1S wireless controller hits the most consistently (I only use it to golf), but when I have live mates over to play I use one of my older controllers and still can keep it within reason even with a worn out stick.

After purchasing a new PS4 controller to add to my collection of 3 older PS4 controllers I broke down AGAIN and purchased a wired Xbox One controller for Windows.  I can now hit the ball fairly consistently straight (close or on the center line in the shot cone) with my new Xbox One controller where as I could not consistently keep my swing results even in the cone on any of my PS4 controllers.

Now I still need to work on getting a consistent P/P tempo or at least a S/P tempo.  :-\
