TIGER WOODS 13 - CHALLENGE #1

Hey all,

 

Who's up for a bit of a challenge?  Yes? Well you're in the right place. Welcome to the first Tiger 13 challenge.

 

The idea is that I'll pick a course and a golfer and ask you to play that and post your score in this thread. (there is a bit of a twist which you'll see below ;))

 

Without further ado, here is this weeks challenge...

 

Course: TPC Sawgrass (stroke play)

Golfer: Rory McIlroy

Holes: Second Nine

NO PINS ALLOWED – please don’t add any pins to the golfer for the round.

 

Weather: Sunny

Wind: Calm

Wind Gusts: On

Tee Select: Black

Flag Select: Medium

Tournament Atmosphere: On

Course Conditions: Average

2nd Cut Length: Medium

Mulligans: Off

 

And now the tricky part ;)

 

You are only allowed to use the following clubs for this round:

 

3 Wood

6 Iron

PW

Putter

 

The aim of the challenge is to get round in as low a score as you can.  No prizes, just a bit of forum fun so I hope everyone will be honest with their scores :)  Please post a pic if you can. You can have as many tries as you like but only the score you post and provide a pic of will count.

 

Closing date to post your score is midday on Friday 13th April (yikes, hope you're not superstitious!)

 

Good luck everyone :)

 

Here’s my score (I have my difficulty set to Pro).  Struggled on a couple of holes but generally happy with that score.  Can you beat it?  (I'm guessing yes tbh!)

^ ah, good thinking. shall turn off putt preview for tomorrow's challenge - yikes!

those tournaments are EA ones - unfortunately we're not ranked highly enough to take part - not sure what level we have to be.

I think i can set-up a tournament in the country club via EA's website so shall take a look at setting one up tomorrow :)

challenges have been good fun......even with my poor scores:smileyhappy:

 

i've been playing been playing without shot meter and putt preview, which might explain some of my rubbish putting.........but then again that might be down to my useless approach shots:smileyvery-happy:

 

Look forward to the next challenge, maybe this time i can post a score under par:smileywink:

I've set-up a daily tournament for today in the Country Club - if you go into it, it should be there. Only open for today and can only submit 1 score. I'm just gonna use my own profile golfer for that one :)

It'll show it under the 'notifications' when you select Country Club from the top menu.

Good luck :)

Shall post the next challenge today as well.

Was glad when i saw it was pebble beech, thats my favorite course. Thought i would struggle a bit more without the grid on the green, but the majority of my putts didnt have much break.

 

Been trying to increase my created golfers attributes, so will give challenge 3 a shot tomorrow.......hopefully i can post a decent score this time:smileyhappy:

cheers :) nice score there too cap. it's a bit tricky with putt preview off, i certainly missed a few putts there. shame you couldn't submit it, not sure why though. I'll be setting these up every Sat/Sun so we can have a bit of a comp each week as well as the challenge on here :)

thought i'd spend some of my coins on a round somewhere. i remember the 'predator' course from old tiger woods and how fun & challenging it was. so went for that one. bloomin heck, challenging was the right word!!

got round even par in the end. what a tough course that is. EA must have had fun making that one (while drinking lots i bet!)

crazy course. you're taking shots and can hear lions roar in the jungle lol.

Heres my score for this weeks challenge......bit of an improvement on the previous two, managed to hold it together a bit better. Still a few approach shots going wild especially on the par 5's.....I'll need to work on that if i'm gona challenge you guys.

 

Had a go at the daily challenge as well, posted score of -12. Thoght i would be able to sneek the win outright from you mattsimmo........hit par on the last 3 holes.

ah, unlucky there weezy. the wind was bloomin hard. certain holes i was having to aim well off the fairway just to try and land on it! 35mph cross winds ain't much fun!

@cap - not to fear, there is a tourney set to run tomorrow as well so hopefully you can enter that one :)
