Was really enjoying this game until the next course on the pga curcuit. I couldn't play it unless I downloaded it for $3.99. The option to skip that particular tourniment exists but the other golfers don't (npc) so they continue to gain points towards the championship... no good

I like the gameplay and the caddie concept, but there were a couple of issues that were annoying to the point that it caused me to return the game instead of keeping it. First, there is no way to toggle to the 3-click swing. I wouldn't want to use it all the time, but sometimes it is necessary when you want to be as precise as possible on your power percentage. Secondly, when you get to the PGA Tour level, half the events on the schedule are not playable until you purchase the courses (for $4 each, mind you). This is unacceptable not to mention just plain greedy. So you pay $60 for the game and then on top of that you have to buy some of the courses? 100% ridiculous.
When I first received this game in the mail, I thought I would be bored with it...hardly! It sucked me in. At first the putting was tough, but once I got the hang of it and eagled on the 18th to win I couldn't put it down, The different challenges from the different courses was intriguing--especially for someone that will never be able to play (for real) in Greece or Wales or, certainly not, in Augusta at the Masters. To be able to create a character that so closely resembles you is alot of fun. I play this more than "MLB: The Show". That's says alot!
