I bought the game last month and have been playing it steady since then... not sure what to really make of it really. Sometimes I really enjoy it but there are times where you hit your drive into the brush and like someone mentioned earlier the trees act like theatre drapes. There's no chance if you've made contact with trees. The crowds are horrible, the animations are terrible also I find when you make a long putt or winning stroke. The putting has gotten better I think but can at times still be frustrating. It just doesn't seem like EA put as much effort into the game as they do with their other sports series.
The fact that you have to purchase additional content is ridiculous as well.
2K Sports should create a golf game imo. They've managed to completely trump the EA Sports NBA series.
Are you playing '13 or '14? You said that you got it last month but the release date was only this last week.
I think that EA does a really good job with it. I agree with Jamo, no Tiger = no sales.
