Same problem here. Jumped from Hack to pro and can not even reach the fairway with a perfect shot. Mistake????
same situation here, was 68.33 amateur, new tiers come out next day, i'm in master bracket, lumped in with guys who avg. in mid 50's, shoot 2 rounds at BPB and my avgis back over 70...?????
please someone tell me what the tier score ranges are
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.
Here's your answer sgt....
all equip his equipment is available in the pro shop, no enhancements =)
He is just that good. Period.
It happened to me hack to pro It is a big step up. It might be a move to have us buy new equipment, cause I'm gunna need it!
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!
