For the love of golf............ will people stop comparing this game to any type of xbox, sega, playstation, atari and any thing else I may have missed.
Why? This game is a direct descendant of PGA Golf 1990. Obviously technology has made it a different game, but I disagree that the video games, at least the ones I played, took nothing at all to learn how to hit different shots. Just as this one takes a great deal of time and practice to become a TL, and people reach that tier by doing the very same thing I did on PGA Golf. Practiced like a crazy person.
And unless you did, you would never shoot TL scores on those simple video games either. So, I apologize in advance for the next reference you see of mine to a video game with many similarities, just fewer variables and easier equations, to this very game you play here.
In fact, if not for the developers of that particular golf game many years ago, there wouldn't be a WGT. That's just the reality of it and the facts concerning where this game came from. There's a very good, yet simple, reason why BPB and St. Ann were the 1st courses on this site. Because they were the 1st ones on that 25 year old video game that you may try having a bit of respect for, even if it was a little 'easier'.
