I am playing in my career mode (offline) to practice more. Which I definitely need! The courses that were randomly put into my tour seem overly difficult. I think I can chose my own courses for my career mode but thought it would be easier and quicker if I let the program do it for me.
The 9 Courses Difficultly on my tour:
Fairways, Greens and speeds all vary.
I am learning about the roll out of my shots after they land but these hardest courses give you next to no chance at stopping a ball on the green. With tight fairways and punishing wind, heaven help me to keep it out of the rough! Is there a way to see if these courses are actually real life courses? Or some designers creativity? Seems that some designers are sadists! LOL!
I am no quitter and know I will get better but any advice from our veteran players? Oh, I am thankful that the program adjusts the computer players to match my level of performance. At least it gives me a fighting chance, well in my own mind anyway.
Ok, my rant is over. Have a great day everyone!
I hate to say it, but it just takes playing a ton of rounds to figure out. I can give you a few pointers though.
1. Figure out what side of the cone you are missing most. If it's a fade or draw action. Then compensate you shots to allow for the ball action. Example: You hit a draw most of the time. Line up 5 or 10 feet to the right of your target. Not straight at it.
2. Learn your roll outs. This is based on green firmness. Over compensate for a while. also, try to set up an uphill putt.
3. Elevations. The basic rule is + or - 3ft equal 1 yrd of distance. Example: the pin is 12 ft below your feet. 3 goes into 12 4 times, so subtract 4 yrds of distance.
Those are 3 steps that will help over time. Good luck!
