I didn't see anything from a search, but has anyone played the new EA Rory golf game?   I was thinking about getting it for Xbox One but before I pulled the trigger I read some reviews that the game had some issues.   I stopped playing the earlier version (Tiger from several years ago) because the putting drove me crazy.  The prior EA Tiger version to that one was awesome, I really liked that.   And you felt like you really accomplished something when you beat Tiger at the end in a match.

I haven't actually played any of the newest ones, but from what I read the only major issue with the game was the lack of content (i.e. a lack of courses) at release.  I would assume that have remedied that by now, but I haven't looked into it for some time.

I could see that.   Xbox One has an insane patching system.   I got my console yesterday and spent an hour doing patches and updates on the console.   Then the controller.   Then I put in Halo 5 and it was updating when I went to sleep.   New courses being added should be easy...

I'd be ok with a small number of courses as long as the game play is good.  The old PC versions had 5 or 6 (then you could add on) and the fantasy courses are neat too.

I'm not sure if we have the newest Rory game or the one before it. Here are some thoughts:

1. Approach shots are really difficult for me. It seems like I can never predict if the ball is going to bounce forward or backward on any particular green. 

2. I'm not coordinated enough to hit the ball straight and power up the shot at the same time. My bruv has no such issues, so he's always got the advantage of watching my approach shots.

3. While the putting can be difficult at times, I think its generally fair.

4. The course selection is ok. More would always be nice. They also included fictional courses. While clever, I'd rather see real courses.

5. The announcers (Nobilo in particular) get annoying quick. They'll say sarcastic stuff and sometimes on a good shot.

6. Generally, I liked the feel of the older Tiger Woods games better. It's hard for me to really describe it better, but there's sort of a more mechanical feel with this game.

I haven't played the Rory game, but all the reviews I read when it came out were mediocre.

The Golf Club is the only other golf game for Xbox One. I do have that one, and it's solid. Half the price too.

The first version I had, putting was a little too easy.  The second version I had, it was horrible.  This was on the Wii and I had some type of extension to provide better accuracy on the controller.  I didn't last three holes with it.  Normal controller the putting was too hard.  A 8 foot putt that broke more than a little was impossible, more so that real life!

For the number of shots made in a game, they need many more comments.   It was very repetitive.  It gets grating if you play more than a couple of times per week.

I agree about the older games.   I think they were better and the custom options for your golfer got worse as time went on.   Less things to customize.

I saw that one too but didn't look into it enough.   I'll have to give it a second look.   Thanks!

I should have prefaced that we have Xbox One. The few times I've played anything on a Wii have been awkward to say the least.

The system I was thinking of getting it for was the Xbox One.   The prior versions were on the Wii.   The first version on the Wii was great, I had a nice repeatable swing.   On the second, not so much.  But it was more the putting.

Have not played the new Rory game but did used to play Tiger Woods quite often. It's funny I beat my buddy at Tiger Woods once, and he is a scratch golfer in real life. His response: "you know this is not like real golf right"? Haha..

I like to play WGT Golf on my phone.

I play the rory game often on xbox one.  My favorite game was the TW Masters edition on 360.  Regarding the rory game, I'm mostly happy with it.  I would've liked to see more courses.  But the head 2 head game mode is fun.  I hope they really step it up for the next game, when ever that is.  They took a backwards step with this game, overall.  I play it just as well as any of the others, but it's not as diverse overall.

I still play Tiger Woods 14 on 360 now and then.  Great game and a lot of courses too.

Last golf video game i played came with like 5 courses and you had to buy the other 20 after shelling out $50 to pay for the game. F that. Having picked up a golf video game since. This was like 6-7 years ago.

I got Tiger Woods 2010 at Gamestop the other day for $0.45... I also grabbed 2013 for $1.10.

With prices like this I dont know if can afford to golf next year!!! :whistle:

I took my old Nintendo out last weekend to play some old relics and had a ton of fun with the golf on it.  You guys remember that game?

I can't go that far, but my favorite old-ish golf game was Peter Jacobsons Goldten Tee golf on playstation 1.  I know they have the arcade style still, but this on the PS1 was a lot of fun when I was a kid.

For you guys that play Tiger Woods/PGA Tour on the Wii, do you use a real practice swing with the controller, or do you do the little underhanded toss I see most gamers use?

I do the whole swing.  I try to picture my own swing as I play TW on wii.

^^^ Good to hear. I am going to try doing that this weekend.. The colder it gets the less I want to take practice swings in the garage.

    • Worrying about your swing mid round usually doesnt work out well. Especially if youre in a match or tournament. When I played a ton I would work on my swing/swing thoughts on the course during the week and on the weekend rounds or tournament I would just play with what Ive got. If you practice enough your swing will evolve for the better.
    • If I ever get to the point where everything is automatic and I don't have to actively think about it I'm sure emotion would help, but for me the madder I get the harder it is to focus on my swing techniques..
    • FWIW that wasn't a comment per se, I was just trying to help others who find one topic find the other.
    • If I was playing against you on the course and noticed you were easily frazzled, well I wouldnt stop the commentary. To get better at dealing with this, you might want to play for some cash with your friends. Spice up the round a little. Emotions are a big part of golf. Being able to deal with and react to a double bogey before you hit your next tee shot usually results in a better score. Same thing when making a birdie or hitting a great shot. Even Tiger and Dustin walk up to the green like theyve got a huge (you know what) after stuffing it tight to the pin. You certainly can use emotion to fuel your golf game.  My buddy is a scratch golfer and absolutely hates giving me strokes. He will beat me 7/10x if we are not playing for cash. When there is money on the line he is my little bitch and sometimes I beat him straight up.    It doesnt have to be a ton of money, but just enough to make you a little uncomfortable with losing it. That can be a $10 nassau, $20 match play for 18 holes, a game of $5 wolf can really make you sweat. Just to get your emotions going. Thats what will really help you fine tune your game and get the best out of the swing you have that specific day.
    • Thank you! I considered the Bat Caddy models and definitely considered the Alphord eWheels V2. I did want a cart that had a swivel front wheel for sharper turns and less wear on the front wheel. I could have bought a cart like that and added the V2 but thought this was the easiest for me. The cost would have been comparable. There were a couple of other carts on the long list but their prices were simply too high for me to consider at this time. Please edit away. I thought I'd put the name of the cart in the title but I must have missed doing so. Sorry. And, in case anyone were to wonder - I have no financial interest whatsoever in any of the cart manufacturers. I will see what I can do about a few more images but I didn't want to go overboard. Indeed I did and I looked very closely at your suggestion. It was a good one and had some great reviews so thanks again for that.
