You know, the house rule i implemented when playing rory (3 click) was i didnt allow myself to adjust the distance meter when taking a shot or a chip. This way i knew what the full distance was and i had to estimate the backswing needed to get the correct distance
  Much more realistic then adjusting a marker and then getting a perfect 100% line / indication that would lead to the perfect distance everytime.   Know what i mean?

Be fun to see the results of combining the tgc swing with the left stick and adding the 3 click at the same time. Could be fun, could be terrible, but could add all kinds of dispersersion results.

I wouldn’t advise playing against the computer. I tried a match and it was embarrassing. The AI is half finished. They can’t chip for instance. Happy Gilmore style chipping.

Yeah I understand. That could be quite cool to be fair. Distance control much more important. You leave the marker at 100% for every shot then? I’ll have to try it at one point.

I do. I leave it at 100% for every shot and, i agree the pro's chipping is half finished.  Also when i was playing this game more, i created some more pros and built their attributes in areas i thought thise pros were good at.   Would be nice if i didnt uave to work to build up their attributes but it gave me more to play against

I would also have really liked HB to have added more PGA courses as dlc packs.   We need to be playing along in pairings in career mode too.   I dont think tiger golf ever did that but that would be great for career mode.   
   I just dont understand how golf became this (assumed by many ) to be a second rate sport?   There are just as many interesting golfers in todays game as there has ever been.   When i was growing up in the 80's and even into the 90's we couldnt wait to play every weekend.    If we had a beautiful fully fleshed out golf game i bet it would sell.  Like i said on the EA forum you cant put goofy bounce it three times off the tiki post type courses in the game or you lose the interest of the fans of the sport.   What if they had teams in madden that were made out of cows  or giant rats along with the 32 regular teams,  wouldnt you question its authentucity and just take a pass on the game?

Yeah I don’t know what HB were thinking about by having some of those community ‘official’ courses. Should have had the real life licensed ones as official and then just had the community ones as recommended. No offence to the community ones as there are some gems on there, however, to be labelled official is just putting to much pressure on those courses.

A proper PGA Tour game would sell well if not ‘half-finished’ like Rory or ‘half-licensed’ like TGC19.

I played a few holes this morning before work.   Dustin johnson was good.  Miguel jimenez not so much and then there was me.  Very much, not so much but its fun playing them and for a game thats 5 years old its a looker!!  Even by todays standards that frostbite engine is sweet looking.  19 courses total i think it is.  Kind of thin

3 click, hard, advanced, no downfield cam. Grids off.  I do like that this game gives you the option of grids without moving beads as the putting views leave a lot to be desired.   I did struggle putting on oakmont #2 as i was above the hole twice on tournament set greens and putted past the hole and off the green twice... i think i saw the dustin johnson character smile but.... i know thats not possible. 😁

Yep only problem is i am 3 clicking off to spain for a few days......only had 2 rounds so far so i will need a bit more practice.To me more than enough decent courses just can't find how you create a AI player with good stats.Yes got hardest setting on everything.

Yes, only way to create more pros is to create their likeness, use them and build their attributes to where they should be .   I know thats not ideal but, EA did add a bunch of slots for newly created players so, it is possible to get a large field of newly created  players to go along with the pros they gave you.
