    We could actually see some legitimate Beginners in Online Matchmaking starting tomorrow! :) I'm really curious to see how this game goes over with casual gamers who take the initiative to pick it up and try it tomorrow. I'm concerned that most of them aren't going to grasp how the game's tempo dependent swing affects hooking and slicing, far more than it affects distance... we'll see, I guess.
    If you've played golf games before that use the thumbstick, analog control input method... I urge you to make sure you change your golfer's equipment to at least "Pro" clubs in the game before you play a round. It defaults to "Beginner" clubs and they are almost totally on rails. You'll get no idea of the dynamic nature of this game unless you use Pro, or better yet, Master clubs.
    I’m definitely downloading this today as I have been waiting to get into this game. I’ll be sure to change my club set before I start playing but I’ve had the itch for a good golf game for quite some time.

    You will definitely enjoy it, and for free no less! If you really like it you can sign up at TGCTOURS.com and get in weekly tournaments after you go through Q-school and get your tour card. There are a few stutter and framerate issues from time to time but overall it is a great golf game. Enjoy
    That's a good get for anyone on the fence about it, obviously because it's free. It's a good game though. Leaves stuff to be desired IMO, but the course creator makes it worth every penny even if you had to pay for it. Definitely recommend checking it out to all.

    Lol. This made me smile a bit.
    Allow me to recap your post point by point..
    Neutral, sort of negative, sort of positive, negative, positive, positive.
    Just went through the shot tutorials and played the opening round to earn my tour card. I shot a +12 for the round as putting was pretty difficult (as it should be). I didn’t earn my card but I’m dying to get back on the course and try again. I enjoyed it for my first play and can imagine that playing with friends would be a blast.

    Cool R1zzo23, and it is a blast with your friends, especially in Private Matchmaking... there are no delays there and it feels so "live".
    May I ask which club set you're using: Beginner, Pro, or Master? I recommend Pro, as a minimum, but give the Master clubs a go once you've gotten competent with the Pro clubs.
    Started with pro clubs as everyone said the game would be far too easy with the beginner set. Also I think I put difficulty in medium when I started the round.

    Probably my most played game on my Xbox or at least right up there with Fifa I really wish I would know more in advance what the free games will be. This is the second time I bought a game and then in a few months it was free.

    Isn’t it only free until the end of the month?

    As long as you download any free game before the game is no longer free then you own it for good

    I only played one round so far, but I can tell that Pro clubs will be the permanent setting for me. Just by the feel of the swing and the putting, I know that my best scores will occasionally be in the mid 60's and I will blow up and shoot some 80's too. That range is perfect for me to enjoy the game.
    The price is definitely right. :y15:
    I'm not a big fan of the TGC series, the presentation is basically the same from TGC 1 to TGC 2019. It becomes redundant after playing a month or so. It does give a good round of golf.

    ...to the extent your install doesn't become corrupted. Back it up if you want to be sure to keep it ;o)
    This game is a blast.  I played a few head to head matchmakers this weekend and I very much enjoyed the experience.  Looking forward to more online gaming with this one!

    The actual multiplayer handling is responsive by the server. I'd like to ask you though, would you enjoy it more if you could lock to club set to a given type? I like to play with Master clubs in online matchmaking, but I quite often find myself matched up against players using Beginner clubs, who really have no business using beginner clubs, and it makes for what feels a bit like an apples to oranges match, IMO.
    When I'm matched up against someone using Master clubs, it's a much more complete and balanced experience. If I could have one wish for multiplayer in this game, it would be to have a filter to lock the club type to a certain type.
    Since the game went "Free With Gold" last week, I have encountered more people who legitimately should have been using beginner clubs, as they demonstrated all the traits of a beginning or very casual golf gamer. The game tries to equalize things by putting both players in a Beginner Vs. Master club player on the tees of the player with the shorter carrying clubs. Still, the beginner club control is sooooo much easier than the Master (at least on XBox One) that the competition is still leaning heavy toward the Beginner club player, who's not going to need as much carry anyway off the "Beginner/shorter" tees.

    On the more difficult courses, Pro clubs give me as much challenge as I can handle. I've shot a couple 61's with them over the last few months on average courses, but I also shot a 94 with them at Bethpage Black in the final round of my favorite Society's tournament there last night... which included 5 quadruple bogeys. I have a tendency to go Jon Daly though, after a really bad hole, so I was playing the last 15 holes like a pouty brat :) The first quad was legit, the rest were 'attitude' quads. I'm hoping this is going to change a little bit as I mature with age ;)

    One caveat, since they started adding Xbox One Games with Gold, you have to continue to be gold to play the game. So if you stop paying for Gold you lose the game. Be aware of this!

    Perhaps start a thread here for like-minded members to play with.
