Tiger cheats in Tiger Woods 2012 The Masters

15 posts in this topic

So I have been working with the AI difficulty levels and the amount of focus I allow myself to use.  By doing this I have been able to get the AI competitive and not "blow" away the field.  It has made the game more interesting and I actually don't win all the tournaments.  Anyway, to the point.  I am currently ranked #2 in the EA Sports ranking.  I am playing my first tournament with the possibility of overtaking Tiger Woods for #1.  When you do this you play beside Tiger for the whole tournament.  Going in to the fourth round I am one off the lead.  Casey is in 1st at 37 under and I am in 2nd at 36 under.  Tiger is way back at 25 under.  So I'm thinking alright with a good round and a win I will be number 1.  WRONG.  Imagine my surprise when I start the fourth round and see Tiger is now in the lead(mind you he has not played a hole in the fourth round yet) at, wait for it, ..........................................-97.   WHAT THE?  So I quit the game and restart.  Same thing.  Guess he really dose not want me to be number 1.  UGHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

lol Yeah I noticed this too yesterday when I had a chance to over take him. I hadn't adjusted the AI yet so I was still blowing away the field. I ended up winning by 20 something over Tiger and I still didn't get the number 1 ranking. Kinda pissed me off to be honest.

What I hate is how you put so many points into power boost, then you up the difficulty and it doesn't allow you to use it... wtf

I think the point is that it's supposed to be more difficult

I was putting points into power boost before I realized I don't use it (or mid-flight spin), even when it's allowed.  So all my power points went into the other power.

Something I'm wondering about, and I want to make it clear that I'm not trying to imply anything about anyone when I say this.  Some video games are notorious for doing bizarre things when they notice the copy being played is pirated (although there was an error in a few that caused it to happen in non-pirated copies).   I wonder if 97 under is one of these features coming to the surface (whether in the right context or not).

I guess that could be, but if my copy is pirated Game Spot owes me some money back.  :)  Well I finished 2nd to Tigers 97 under and stayed in 2nd in the EA Sports ranking. The next tournament the scoring went as it should.  I won by 2 strokes and over took Tiger for number 1.  Go figure?  Strange glitch for sure.  His score never changed for the entire round.  Didn't matter if he made a bird or a bog.  If you look at the 97 under, it is his 25 under ant the start of the round, and then 72 under for round 4.  So he was so good he did not even have to hit the ball to get it in the hole and score a 0.

I knew a guy like that once ;-)

Just to clarify:  I wasn't claiming you pirated.  There were issues - I think one of the Batman games - where the pirated protection came out in many legitimate copies.

So the next time I face him will he actually play the round?

It's probably a glitch.



Hah I was wondering where my post went. I just hope I don't have to watch him hit every round from here on out

If I'm remembering right, I did not have to play with him the next round.  The scores were normal the next time out.

      Where they let Rickie take that drop from is some BS. He should've been further back.
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      He said something like "even your typical PGA Tour player these days would have been a superstar in my day." His point was that there are a TON more talented players who are far better than the guys he played against. I don't think it's quite as exaggerated as you might, but I also really don't care to get into it too deeply. The strength of field is multiple times stronger today than in 1968. There weren't that many overseas players. Or players in the U.S., for that matter. That alone accounts for strength of field differences. Very few foreign players came over to play on the PGA Tour. The money wasn't that good, unless you were one of the top players. It wasn't like it is today, and travel was still expensive. There's a reason players back then had to carpool, share hotel rooms, etc. Just look at the basic numbers. Once you get past the top one, two, maybe three players… it's folly to suggest it was likely that the top 15 players out of 1.5 million players is at all on the same level as the top 15 players from 100 million golfers. It's possible but highly, highly, highly unlikely. Furthermore, golf has attracted more and better athletes recently, too, which wasn't anywhere near as true in the 1960s. I get it. People like to romanticize the past. But the games and athletes move on and get better. That's irrelevant. He could only beat who he played against, and the truth is, he didn't beat weaker competition more often than Tiger Woods except in majors, he didn't win more money titles, more scoring titles, more individual awards, have higher margins of victory, etc. than Tiger Woods, all against weaker (Nicklaus's) competition. Jack might have chosen football if he grew up today. He might have been a career Web.com Tour player. Or he might have won 23 majors because he was that good and the modern advancements would have helped him that much. We don't know. It's pointless to speculate, IMO. I think the depth of field still matters and mattered in the majors. Even in the Opens. Even in events including only the top 50 players, there's still a big gap in depth from the 60s to the 00s.

      Come on guys, I'm missing the 1st quarter of the Super Bowl. That being said, I think Fowler just sent his chances to a watery grave.

    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      I'd be curious to see just what Jack said. I think "10 or 15" having a chance to win for typical PGA Tour events in any era is an exaggeration of the relative weakness of the fields. Even before there was a depth of talent in the U.S. and the 'golf craze' here took off, the money drew top level golfers from overseas who were following the better money available here in tournaments and pro positions. I accept there's been a general strengthening of fields as the expansion in prize money and the total population of competitive golfers (see chart below) have forced top golfers to have more preparation and polish, but I don't think there's really ever been a lack of generally elite level competition on the PGA tour or at the Majors since about the 20's or 30's. I think if the effect of a tiny number of truly top level competitors taking on a bunch of club pro relative 'dubs' was as strong as you seem to think that most of the top multiple Major winners would be golfers from the early days of the tour. But to me it looks pretty balanced across eras. I'll see if I can work up some actual numbers. By the 1920s there were likely about 1.5 million golfers (in the U.S. alone), which is a pretty healthy base from which to draw potential 'top talent'. Total participation in golf from when Jack started to when Tiger started roughly tripled. As far as rating 'achievement' you play in the era you play with the existing disadvantages and advantages. IMO, if Jack had grown up as a contemporary of Tiger with the same advantages of technology and swing instruction / coaching and the same disadvantages of a greater number of potential competitors that they would both have risen to elite levels and would have regularly been battling for Amateur and Major Championships. I don't think the potential ranges of human abilities / talent really change much in a few generations. Would I consider Tiger more competitively vetted, yes. Do I think that means his talent level and achievements were automatically greater than Jack's? No. I could see valuing Tiger's win total more than Jack's (and certainly Snead's with some 'iffy' events in the total) because of the relative talent base depth, but not sure that transfers as readily to the performance in Majors, particularly the Opens. I think it would have been amazing and exciting to be able to see them compete at their peaks rather than a boring foregone conclusion.
