Since Flash is leaving Windows at the end of 2020, this game may be worth giving a look.   I've been playing WGT but w/o flash the same game just isn't the same.   I've played both.  I'll probably give this a look.  

I have an older PS3 with Tiger Woods '09 but things have changed quite a bit in the last 11 years.

Picked up 2k21 for PC, some thoughts if anyone is looking at it. It does not have the three click swing, instead you pull the mouse back to start the swing, then forward to finish. The forward tempo is key, too fast and it draws/hooks, too slow and a fade/slice.  You want to be straight also, which has lead to some consternation in MP. If you hold your cursor at the side of your monitor, it will always be perfectly straight. Putting takes some getting used to, I find a 30 footer easier than a 7.The Graphics are very good, courses look and play great. There are many way to adjust the degree of difficulty, I think its one of the best features. You have 6 levels that will change the sweet spot on your impact. I used the easiest to learn but after a couple 57's upped it to pro, then dropped down a level to pro am. Pro was tough to hit, there are 2 levels above that! After you set your swing difficulty if the rounds are not competitive, you can adjust the skill level of the pros up or down. At the bottom they might go 2 to 3 under par, at the top 14 to 15 under per round. So you can find a low stress swing setting for you, then match the pros to your level so things stay competitive.

The only rule issues I've seen is no drop from a cart path and one instance where I bounced from the fairway into a water hazard. It had me drop on the other side of the lake. The ball reacts great to the surroundings other than the gallery, it ignores them . You will get a bad bounce now and then but for the most part it does what it looks like it should do. I killed the announcers after a 1/2 dozen rounds, too few lines so becomes repetitive fast. There are also replays of shots other players hit, I shut them off also. There are no AI controlled players to play against for match or skins games, only in MP and I mostly stay away from that so I can't comment, though the boards have a lot of complaints about slow play,(another degree of realism), and losing players abandoning the game.

I think it a good move forward from EATW 09, I'd give it an 8 of 10.

    • I have a “low” launch angle too, and my driver is 9.5°. If you don’t mind my asking what shaft do you have in your driver? You may not need a 16° Driver, it could be the shaft has too high of a flex point. But I’ve heard of higher lofted drivers though they can be hard to come by these days.
    • This season I was consistently shooting in the high 80s. Played some of my best golf and I am really happy with how straight I am hitting the ball right now. The ONE thing I would change in my game is simply the height of my drives.    I hit about a hundred balls today on trackman and with the driver I am getting average clubhead speed of 120 mph, launch angle 7 degrees, 268 yds carry. It’s bugging the hell out of me to see these low bullet balls, and despite trying all this year to deliver more loft (I’ve had a few lessons trying to fix just this issue alone), I just can’t seem to do it.  I currently play a stiff shaft Taylormade R1 set to 12 degrees loft. I’m thinking about possibly experimenting with one of those super lofted (16 degree) drivers. Has anyone ever tried this, and if so did it actually make a difference? In advance I just want to also say, yes, I agree an equipment fix in this case is a bandaid for a larger problem. But I’m also just trying to have fun with my game and if buying a higher lofted driver helps this problem, I’m happy to take it for now.  
    • Day 129.  During the workday, went to the next door room to hit some 6-iron shots;  indoors, off a mat, into a net, real balls. 
    • Day 320 Superspeed workout, then some mirror work on takeaway/backswing, and finally hit some balls with 7-iron. Hit the ball well today. Still searching for a good feel/thought to take on course for backswing piece. Current one is okay, but I think I can come up with something better.
