    My only complaint is when I play the U.S. Open course, tee off  and can't reach the fairway even with a perfect drive. I'm hitting a four iron just to get out of the rough and there's no hope of even a par. It did however, make me a more accurate driver but my average went from 73 to 84 and I'm still supposedly a pro. In real life I could barely break 100........ some pro.

    I to went from a hack to pro, it was when i tried the us open course, I haven't tried Kiawah  again to see if I go back. The problem is yardage, on Behtpage there are 3 holes that I cant reach the fairway with my current driver. Most par 4's im not getting to the green until my 3rd shot. I checked the leaderboard and I see a guy shot a "64", there must be a way to create more distance with your clubs than just upgrading, they only show an average of 230 yards for the Ping & Taylor Made, an extra 5 yards is not going to help shoot a 64 on that course. Any suggestions or does anyone know how to increase the distance with your clubs.

    I've been reading the post's regarding the new tiers and I must say everyone who is complaining about moving up to a pro or master must be scratch golfers away from this virtual golf game! This is just a GAME fellas! dont take it so hard . I too was moved from amature to pro with my average of 68  and I must say it is much more tougher, with that said.. this game is the close'st to the real thing when it comes to miss hits reads on the green etc. I  like many other golfers have bought top of the line clubs (taylormade) and it has helped my game some what I now play to a 10.2 HCP  but its real! when I miss a drive or a green or a putt I dont blame the corse or the clubs! LOL!Enjoy the game here on this site guy's!! You dont have to play  a acual stroke play game if you need practice.. click on practice and do just that PRACTICE!
