The Golf Club 2019 Featuring PGA TOUR Gameplay Video - TPC Southwind, Hole 18

HB Studios has released a new gameplay video, showing off TPC Southwind at hole 18. The game is scheduled to release sometime this summer and includes the PGA Tour license. Summerlin, Scottsdale, Sawgrass, Southwind, Deere Run and Boston will be featured in career mode.

PGA TOUR Career Mode
Users will begin their career in the Web.com Tour qualifying tournament, the start of a journey to become a PGA TOUR member. Finishing in the top 75 in this event qualifies for entry into the Web.com Tour. In a streamlined season, users will have multiple ways of advancing to the PGA TOUR to begin their professional career. Finishing in first place in three of the six events will automatically earn a PGA TOUR card for early promotion. Finishing in the top 25 on the money list after the six events will also earn early promotion to the PGA TOUR. Once on the PGA TOUR, users will join the PGA TOUR and compete for the FedExCup over 32 events. Throughout each PGA TOUR season, not only will they compete for the top spot on the leaderboards, they will be working to achieve sponsorship goals for in-game rewards and competing against rivals.

Rivalries
Once on the PGA TOUR, a player’s skills are noticed, leading to a rivalry with another player on TOUR. Over the following events they will compete head-to-head to prove who is the better player, not only on the leaderboard but also statistically. Players will compete for points in Number of Strokes, Front 9 Score, Back 9 Score, Birdies or Better, No Bogey Round, Best Hole and Worst Hole. The first player who reaches 20 points overall wins the rivalry and the bragging rights before moving on to the next challenge.

Sponsor Goals
On the road to the FedExCup Playoffs, a player will attract the attention of various sponsors, who will offer an opportunity to represent their brand while completing challenges throughout each season. The better the performance, the more attention a player will draw from sponsors. A player will have to manage partnerships and challenges for rewards. Each sponsor comes with three levels where a player will have to complete 1-3 challenges to receive a reward.

Licensed Courses
Throughout the PGA TOUR Career Mode, players will experience some of the most well-crafted user generated courses, as well as the authentic PGA TOUR tournament courses: TPC Summerlin (home of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open), TPC Scottsdale Stadium Course (Waste Management Phoenix Open), TPC Sawgrass’ THE PLAYERS Stadium Course (THE PLAYERS Championship), TPC Southwind (FedEx St. Jude Classic and future home of the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Championship), TPC Deere Run (John Deere Classic), and TPC Boston (Dell Technologies Championship).

  1. The most common criticism I'm reading of these videos over the last two weeks is the ease with which the birdies are being scored. Shaun West, the Producer of the game said in the official forum that this video was made with the player using "Pro" clubs, which is the medium difficulty. He also said they were using multiple takes to get the shot result they wanted for the video.
    Why you'd want to show somebody carving up the course this easily for demonstration purposes doesn't make sense to me, it is what they're after apparently, and they probably know more about marketing than I do. I'm a hard core golfer, and golf gamer, and I want to see something that represents the true difficulty of the game more than the casual gamer. I have to keep reminding myself of that as I watch this unfold.
    One other thing noteworthy about this video at TPC Southwind is that it's limited to 1080p, while the previous two were available with 2160p. It makes a difference, even in a compressed You Tube video. The sun behind the clouds also creates an eerie light effect and bland contrast. I don't think they've got the lighting where they want it yet, as they've maintained that a lighting pass will be among the last items to tend to before release.
    So my guess is they don't show a punch shot a long iron out of a fairway bunker or a flop shot before release. As time goes along I find myself more in the camp of changing this tempo swing. It just feels too slow to me.

    It's hard to predict what they're going to do, but I'd love to see some streaming video of an average player playing like three or four holes. I've read the tempo has been tuned since the stress test beta I participated in, so I can't hazard a guess there.
    I thought it was harder to get the tempo perfect/perfect in the stress test beta, but I also found the penalties for not getting it right, particularly the oft fatal perfect/fast were not as severe as what we now have in TGC 2. I'd imagine this has been changed from the stress test beta as well, so I'm not sure what we're going to wind up with. I hope it's an improvement from what they had with TGC 2, because it's on the right track, but it would be nice for it to require more intuition to execute.
    I think people are missing the point of these videos.
    It isn’t about how easy it seems to get birdies, it’s about showing the hole and I guess the new apparel.

    No one is missing the point of the videos.
    Does the PGA season include real players or an ability to add real life players?   It doesn't sound fun being a rival to Fogell Mclovin an organ donor from Hawaii.

    Does the PGA season include real players or an ability to add real life players?* *It doesn't sound fun being a rival to Fogell Mclovin an organ donor from Hawaii.**

    You can edit the player names in the PGA TOUR field, to those of the real life TOUR. The problem will be trying to figure out which fictional player would best translate to which TOUR pro. I'm sure there will be some community guidelines posted shortly after release to help players with this. HB Studios can't be seen as helping to facilitate that because it would no doubt be seen as unauthorized by the PGA TOUR.
    Here's something to keep in mind, you won't ever see these players actually playing in the tournament, along side you... even as nothing more than a ghost ball. The benefit of that is you won't have to worry about getting their likenesses right, for authenticity. The reason I've never enjoyed career mode is because you wind up playing a spread sheet of invisible players. Their scores a derived from statistical formulas, not a attribute based recreation of a particular player, playing out the round, stroke by stroke as an AI player.

    Swing still looks horrible. TW1999 had a better looking swing. But keep up the great work team!

    Talk about yer backhanded compliments! hehe
    But the swing does look awfully stiff.
