Of course being a newby i'm slowly taking the time here and there to read a liitle to try and improve. i found your comment very helpful, and it had had me wondering about the chip, pitch, punch and flop options as i had not seen them, so with a little investigation i found them LMAO!!! wish i would have known sooner, of course being my own fault for not taking the time to read everything, though there is much to read. I would suggest a screen shot of the avatar standing at a tee box with all the options indicated and their location be made readily available to newbies such as i so we can be aware of all the play options(IF IT'S NOT ALREADY DONE). I would aslo suggest a driving range, putting green and chipping area for practice purposes. anyhow thx for the help i'm going to keep on reading.
P.S. i tried the AE sports Tiger Woods as i heard other talking about it and though the dial is probably more consistent (not necessarily better) THE ONLY ADVANTAGE I SAW WAS NO LAG. i have a top of the line computer and connection, i know the lag is not at this end. Even so AE tiger woods is no where near the quality in both sofware, graphics and enjoyment this site provides. I'm certainly stying here as there is nowhere better.
