The first large patch for Rory McIlroy PGA Tour hit today, with various gameplay fixes and a new course, TPC Scottsdale, being added.
TPC Scottsdale is a perfectly fine course, and if you pre-ordered the game you already had access to it. The desert oasis setting is pretty awesome, with the desert creeping into a few holes.
Despite the desert setting though, there's a lot of greenery, and a few holes with ample water later in your round. I personally found no hassles getting the ball to the green on most holes, as the hazards are few and far between. In fact, the course could be a hair on the easy side for any experienced Rory player.
The patch fixes various gameplay elements, and it's clear the game is playing a much tighter game of golf. The ball bounces are more realistic, the swing mechanic is improved, and the gallery is even acting more realistic. It's a good first patch to get a lot of items on the right path. See all of the fixes we know of here.
All in all TPC Scottsdale is a good addition to the game, and the patch moves things forward. A thumbs up from us!
