Just curious if anyone had tried this on the Xbox one X ? I tried it for one hole on Bay Hill and it was not for me.  I know its not intended for this generation of consoles but would have thought they would have greyed it out.  However; with 60 is the swing crazy fast because that is what I felt compared to 30 FPS I am used to.  Just very happy that they put this out there for the next generation of consoles as I know its been a big request.  For those who have the Series X can you also comment on the difference.  Is the swing faster or just smoother ? Thanks

It's both faster, or at least able to be swung faster, when desired, and smoother than it is at 30 Hz.  I get more feedback for my senses that translates to my thumb thanks to the doubling of the frame rate.  I don't feel like I'm swinging the club underwater at 60 Hz, versus 30.  When I want to swing the club faster at 60, I can without feeling like I'm being held back by an artificial limitation.

Yep I agree the swing does feel faster on my Xbox One X at 60 but also the ball flight appears to be faster too. Maybe it's just me. You can really feel the difference between 30 and 60 where 30 has a big input lag and 60 seems to follow your input exactly. This does mean that I will need to relearn putting again if I stick with 60. It's clear that when I push for downswing on putting on 30 that at that point the lag is actually adding a touch more power to my putt so when I push forward at the exact same point on 60, as the downswing is instant, the putt is coming up shorter than I am expecting lol.

Ok so I know this will sound crazy but just realized after 2 years that my Samsung tv supports VRR.  So, I realized the reason it was not working is I did not have it checked in the xbox. So after doing that decided to try 60Hz again on my Xbox One X.  I played one hole and hated it.  Maybe worse was my paranoia that the fan was going crazy, maybe first time I have ever really heard it which made me nervous and the fact that I just started feeling my swing with the 30Hz.  So switched back but kept VRR on.  It seems smoother which does not really make sense to me unless the swing itself really has drops in FPS during the swing ? Anyways, played a round and a half with it and seems like everything is smoothed out although I have not tried it on an intensive FPS course yet.  Due to this like folks have said with the 60hz, does seem like my swing will need to be adjusted a bit, but putting to me felt more natural for the first time since TGC 2019.  Anyway, was just wondering if my logic of VRR helping smooth out the swing at 30Hz makes any sense or could just be the courses I chose and placebo effect.  Would love to play at 60FPS but seems way fast and clunky to me, not sure why some feel this and others say it feels great, very strange.  Love to hear what you guys think.  Thanks.
