Well... If it was'nt for the Masters and Augusta I probably would'nt have gone anywhere near this game. That being said it is awesome! Still love the photo player creator . Pro shop clothing and equipment upgrades are great. They have a new pin system for achievments which is pretty cool. The Graphics look absolutely beautiful , especially Augusta.One gripe would be the actual player movements are a bit chunky while he is walking ( looks like he has to take a deuce ) and putting is a bit challenging . Jim Nantz on the comentary is a huge upgrade as he is one of the best. I have only played a couple hours but I moved up pretty quickly gaining x points in order to upgrade my player attributes. ( Use points for putting. Trust me) I was able to move to the nationwide tour in a couple rounds.The gameplay and overall options of the game including the Masters moments are top knotch!I have not gone online yet so I can speek to it . If you are a golf fan I highly reccomend this game . I believe EA has made a very smart move keeping to the spotlight off Tiger a bit with his resent problems and making it more about The Masters and pro golf ! Love it...lets hit the links!

Lets get right to the bad aspects of this new game.
I play this game on TOUR PRO primarily just for a more realistic gameplay. So my comments are solely based on that gameplay option.
Playing this game is just NOT FUN.....shot's that SHOULD BE terrible due to your shotstick movement turn out great...shots that SHOULD BE perfect turn out terrible. There seems no rime or reason for it, but if you use even just one "focus" click then it's always fine.
The putting is ridiculous!!! I'd rather try to sink a 30 footer with 10' of break than try to sink a 2' put straight in in this game. I have a better chance of making it.
I've found ridiculous mistakes in the game like par 5's labeled, and commentated as par 4's. The graphics are improved in some areas like the menu's and all aspects that are NOT GAMEPLAY RELATED.
BUT THE WORST PART ABOUT THIS GAME..........
There are tournaments in this game that YOU CANNOT PLAY, because THEY LEFT OUT THE COURSES intentionally so that you HAVE TO BUY THEM AS DLC.
This is where they lost me as a purchaser of this game. When they exposed their true greedy colors to me...I packed it up and shipped it back. I would not recommend this game to anyone, and EA will have to step it up BIG TIME to ever gain me back as a Tiger Woods PGA Tour player.
