Can anyone tell me how the announcer in the following video came up with "Not enough club"? I could see "Too much club" but "Not enough"? Is he drunk?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TA4HvpjlqQg&feature=youtu.be

Notice that the distance to the hole is 207 yards and the ball traveled 221 yards.

Haha! I love listening to John in TGC2, it's not his fault, they just never seemed to recode the triggers which trigger his comments when they added new clubs. He seems to be wrong about as much as he is right.

The devs obviously are really limited to what they can work on and how much time they can spend on it. It's not like work on this until you get it right, it's more like.... OK, that's good, time to move on now. These guys probably have to account for every hour invested and you know that includes coffee breaks, emails, bathroom visits, youtube cat vids and everything else that all normal workers do in an 8 hr work day.

Love to know how they know if the ball is landing in a bunker or maybe the rough as the ball leaves the club,Outcome sometimes different from one said but makes you think how little the ball is effected by the wind at times.

They should know the exact results as soon as you finish your swing and make contact with the ball as far as the commentary goes, the problem seems to be when they added new club options they never went back and adjusted their code to trigger Johns commentary. You know, small studio has to manage their man hours and money spent to make a profit, it is a business, not a hobby.  ;)

I am more than happy with the game, just wish they had a bigger budget.  8)

John IS NOT an announcer. This was explained before atleast a year ago. John is more like a friend, standing close to you who does not have any more beneficial vantage point than you.

Apparently you don't play in societies where he is almost whispering his commentary and telling you the leaders score, etc. He graduated from golf buddy in TG1 to something else in TGC2.

This was in Career mode tournament play. He was acting as an announcer. This was not a casual round.

I guess I can chime in at this point with regard to the original post’s question as to how something as glaring and offensive as this could happen.

I hooked it up and it only works correctly most of the time. In some cases it appears to the code that it went long when in fact it did not (and vice versa).

Hope this clears it up.
Sincerely,
John

When I first got the game I couldn't stand the commentary but as time has gone along I find that now I kinda like it.

I've always been happy enough with it although a few more quips would be nice, plus John's a good lad.

Yeah, but sometimes I think the programmer, when he was hooking the audio into the gameplay, was drunk.

What I want to know is why he keeps saying, "The score to beat is 27 under." or "The leader is sitting at 27 under." when the leader board shows the leader is 21 or 22 under. I guess reading the actual leader board is just too much to ask. I understand a miscall on hitting the fairway or green, but to out and out bald face lie to me? I don't tolerate being lied to; at all! I'll be turning the commentator off until this is fixed, and I really enjoy the commentator. So thanks HB. THANKS FOR NOTHING!!!!!!!! >:( >:( >:(
