Roadmap

Step 1 Career: In this stage, you want to create your golfer. This is going to be your main golfer throughout the course of the game. Play your way up until you reach the PGA Tour, upgrading your golfer along the way. In your first season of your pro PGA career, you are going to want to play almost every event to ensure both a #1 ranking, as well as a FedEx Cup victory by the end. You will want to win every major in this first season, as well picking up each trophy for that. You should reach 50 golfer level before you even reach the Master's as well, even when you're playing on Pro difficulty.

After your first season, you will have received a ton of trophies but at the expense of a lot of hard work. The remaining seasons will be strictly for going for Record Breaker. This is why winning the events that you did and becoming the rank that you have is so important from the first season. Now instead of playing all of the events, you can skip to the majors and the PGA championship events. Continue through your career until you break all the records, and you will be done with career mode in a trophy sense.

Step 2 Legends of the Majors: Now that you've honed your skills through the countless seasons in your career mode, you will be ready for the Legends of the Majors mode. This mode is hard and filled with some challenges that will make you want to pull your hair out, with many that seem to require more luck than anything else. With some challenges that will test even the greatest virtual golfers, this is the toughest part of the game, but continue and persevere until you legend every challenge. I highly recommend not throwing your controller during this step, though I'm sure you'll be inclined to do just that.

Step 3 Online: By this step, you're a pro that knows the ins and outs of the game. You'll know most of the big courses as well as you know your local country club. This is the easiest and quickest step in the game. Join an online country club, join its chat, and join a club tournament. This can all easily be accomplished within minutes since you don't even need to complete the country club round. The one part that may take some time is Legendary Matchup, and that's if you are not boosting, but even then it shouldn't take long. If you use this boosting thread Boosting Thread, you will get this trophy in one round. finishing this step within an hour total.

Step 4 Living Legend: This trophy will take a bit of time to get. You will need to complete 21 quick tournament rounds. In this step, you should also attempt trophies that deal with weather and time conditions, as well some of the player specific trophies. Get as many missing miscellaneous trophies out of the way in this step. By the time you're done this step, you should have every trophy besides for Pin Collector. If not, then Pin Collector will give you the opportunity to, but you should shoot for the goal of having only that trophy left after this step, so you can just mindlessly golf the courses over and over, not worrying about anything else.

Step 5 Pin Collector and Clean Up: There's a good chance that by the end of all of these steps you will be left with the Pin Collector trophy left. Continue to replay tournaments, earning countless coins grinding away at pin packs. Get any other trophy you are missing in this section as you can play any course, players, etc in this step.

This step is the reason why the platinum approaches 100+ hours. One full round of 18 holes will take anywhere between 30-45 minutes depending on how good you are and the loading times (the game loads between each hole.) You'll earn coins at the end of each round, with which you will buy packs of pins. Buying these packs with in-game currency should be not be anything new for players who have played many of the other EA Sports titles, and the random and many times frustrating pulls from these will prolong the process. You need to fill out only one course with the proper pins, and at first you may think I'm crazy that it will take this long, just wait. It seems like the game teases you with packs filled with one course or two, making it seem like this trophy will be received quickly, and then will turn around and not give you a single pin of that course for the next 5 packs. Just be warned that most people don't get all the pins for a single course until almost every course is completely filled.

Pro Gamer
Congratulations for unlocking all trophies in Tiger Woods PGA TOURģ 14!

Earn all of the other trophies to earn your platinum.

Power Player
Hit a 400 yard drive with a Power Golfer

This is a relatively easy trophy that may require some tries, but nothing too difficult. Start by going into a practice round at Augusta National. The course consists of a lot of long straight fairways, but hole 15 is the one you are going to select. Make sure to set the wind setting to gale force. Choose Bubba Watson, as he is the most powerful golfer, and since he is a lefty, he can help hit the spot better.

Once everything is set, and you enter the round, make sure the wind is pointing forward; if it isnít, exit and retry. Once the wind is facing forward, aim all the way down the fairway, and you will notice that it slopes downward toward the right side of the fairway. Aim for that downslope! Either a perfect swing, or over swing will work in this situation. Spin the ball forward as much as possible to ensure a good bounce forward. If done correctly, you should get about 380 yards in the air and the ball should have enough momentum to roll down the downslope for about another 30-40 yards or so, netting you the trophy.

Accuracy Player
Hit a hole in one with a Control Golfer

Getting a hole in one may sound like a daunting task, but when choosing the right golfer and the right course it is actually much easier than you may think. Our destination for this trophy is Pebble Beach hole 7. Not only is the 7th hole one of the most scenic and recognizable on the tour, but it is also one of the easiest and shortest.

Enter a practice round selecting Pebble Beach, making sure that the weather is set to calm, and you turn off wind gusts (set the time of day to morning to get Morning Glory). Scroll further down in the settings, and select the custom hole selection option so that you can pick just hole 7. Once all the settings are set, make it a 4 player stroke play game with Luke Donald as all 4 player controlled golfers. Donald not only is the most accurate of the pros, but he also has amazing spin and his distance is perfect for this hole.

Now that youíre all set up, you will have 4 chances per retry to get this trophy. It doesnít matter which Donald you get the hole in one with. There are two simple ways to get the hole in one. My personal choices is to not move the aimer at all from where it starts, and simply hit a perfect distance, perfectly straight shot, and afterwards apply dead backwards backspin. As long as you moved the shooting stick perfectly down and up, and you did not over or under swing it, Donald should hit it right above the pin and with backspin you can bring home the trophy.

The other option is a little harder because it requires a little harder of a shot. Start off by aiming the aimer left of the hole by a couple feet. Now, you are going to want to swing but you want your swing to be an under swing. Donaldís perfect hit sails over the pin but if you under swing the stroke, he can land it right in front of the pin only needing a little help from spin to send it into the cup. When you go through your backswing, you want to stop around the highest point of his swing arch. If you do it correctly, you can easily score a hole in one from the front left side of the hole.

Shot Shaper
Hit the fairway with a Draw Golfer using a Draw shot (Shot Shaping set to Normal or Advanced)

In the game there are various different shot types with golfers that specialize in different things. Probably the most notable draw shot player is Rory Mcllroy. Select him or any other draw shot player, and select any course. Set wind and weather conditions to calm and tee off. Courses like St. Andrews with large fairways are the best courses to pick for this trophy.

When on the course, youíll need to tee off onto the fairway using your draw shot. To select draw shot, hold R1 and rotate the right stick either clockwise or counterclockwise depending on what handed your golfer is. Youíll notice that under the ball icon that you use to place where you make contact with the ball says what type of shot you are attempting. You can choose from fade, straight and draw off the tee box. Select draw and hit to shot onto the fairway to get the trophy.

Tigers have FIR
Complete an 18 hole round with a 100 percent FIR. FIR = Fairway in Regulation

A FIR or fairway in regulation is when you hit the fairway off of your tee shot. This will most likely come naturally through your career progression as your in-game player gets better, and as your skills increase yourself. I would suggest attempting this trophy on a course with long and wide fairways. St. Andrews has huge fairways that are almost impossible to miss when teeing off. There is only one hole that golfers that do not have much power or are teeing off into large amounts of wind might have trouble with, but outside of that it is smooth sailing.

To ensure that you get this trophy, you can set up a practice round and set the conditions to clear and wind to calm, as well as picking a pro golfer such as Tiger Woods to take out anything that could possibly throw your ball off the fairway.

You must hit every single fairway off the tee show in a single 18 hole round to receive this trophy.

That was GIRrrreat!
Complete an 18 hole round with a 100 percent GIR. GIR = Green in Regulation

GIR or Greens in Regulation is when you make it to the green setting with a putt for birdie. GIR requirements are as follows:

Par 3: Must be on green after 1st shot
Par 4: Must be on green after 2nd shot
Par 5: Must be on green after 3rd shot

This trophy is harder than getting a full round of FIR, but with the right course it is manageable. Just like for the FIR trophy, you should go to St. Andrews. Not only are the fairways huge, but the greens are the biggest on the tour. The greens are hilly and have tough spots, but as long as you land anywhere on the green in the certain stroke limit and it counts. If youíve gotten a GIR, it will come up having given you extra experience points at the top right corner.

A golfer with a good mix of power and accuracy is suggested here. The power is needed to drive the ball and getting you within a manageable distance to hit the green, and an accurate player to hit the green when youíre within range. Like the FIR trophy I suggest you set the weather to calm and turning off wind to prevent any unnecessary headaches when going for this trophy. Get all 18 holes GIR in a single round, and your trophy will pop.

Going Green with a Hybrid
Land on the green from over 175 yards away using a Hybrid

This trophy is easiest when you are first starting out in career mode, or with any golfer on the lower side on the power attribute. I suggest attempting the par 4ís at any course, more specifically Oak Hill and St. Andrews. Most par 3ís are too short to get the trophy, and both St. Andrews and Oak Hill have long and straight par 4 holes. I suggest setting high winds and laying up your first shot off the tee, leaving you with around 200 feet left to the green. From there, select your hybrid club and launch it onto the green with the help of the wind if your power is not very high.

There is no specific hole that this trophy comes easily; it is more of a trophy that will come eventually through playing the game.

No Picnic
Sink a 40ft putt with Green Grid Beads turned OFF

There are plenty of long hard putts in the game, and it can happen on virtually any green, but St. Andrews, though having some of the toughest greens, also has some of the easiest. Holes 6-9 all are great for this trophy, but the best is hole 9. Select St. Andrews, and set the course settings to clear weather conditions and no wind. Set the pins to easy and start the practice round at hole 9.

Get the ball to the very right side of the green. Take your time getting there; you can take as many swings as you want, just make sure you get to the very right of the green. The green is almost completely flat, making there little to no things making this putt hard aside from the sheer distance. Keep the green lines on still, line up your putt, and use your putt preview. Still using the guidelines to help you adjust from what the preview showed, you line up your putt. Now press Start>Gameplay Settings and turn green grid beads off. Now take your putt. Donít be afraid to over putt the ball a bit to make sure it reaches. It does not matter if you birdie the hole or if you get a quadruple bogey, as long as you make the putt with no grid beads on the green. Once you sink the putt, the trophy will pop.

Gone with the Wind
From the Fairway, land within 1 yard of the flagstick from 150 yards out with the Wind Display OFF

This can be done on virtually any par 4 or 5, depending on how far (or short) you drive the ball. This trophy is made much easier the less wind there is, obviously. For this trophy, get at least 150 ft from the hole and judge the shot. Still have the wind display turned on, and line up your shot accordingly. Once you are confident, then go into Start>Gameplay settings and turn off the wind display. Take your shot, making sure to utilize some spin to make sure that your ball either sticks and sits to the green or rolls to where you want it.

A wet green will force the ball to stick more on the green and bounce much less compared to a dry green, so a nice steady rain could be your best friend for this trophy. Once you nail the shot with the wind display turned off, and it lands within 1ft, you'll receive your trophy.

Shouting at Amen Corner
Complete Amen Corner (Augusta 11,12,13) with a birdie or better on each in a single round

Select Augusta National in practice round. Unlike other trophies, you cannot just skip to these three holes; you must play up to these holes. Pick any golfer, and set the gameplay setting to the easiest difficulty. Make your way through the course and finish hole 10. From here, you can risk it and hope you get 3 straight birdies at the risk that if you donít you have to restart or you could use another method. The quit and save feature is your best friend for this trophy. Save and exit after each birdie you get, just in case you screw up. If you do screw up and you quit and saved the game along the way you can press the PS button, quit and reload the game. Continue this process until you successfully birdie all three holes in the same round and get your trophy.

Night Life
Play an 18 hole round of golf with time of day set to Night

Play an 18 hole round on any course with any golfer with any conditions, and difficulty you want; just make you set the time correctly. Set the time to night, play and finish all 18 holes, and the trophy is yours.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere
Play an 18 hole round of golf with LIVE Time of Day ON

Much like Night Life, it doesnít matter the course, golfer or conditions only the time. When you set up the game, go into edit settings and change time to LIVE time of day on, finish the full round to get the trophy.

The Real Deal
Play an 18 hole round of golf on Simulation Difficulty

Pick any golfer on any course you want. Edit the setting to gameplay difficulty to Simulation. This trophy does not require you to do good or hit a certain number of shots, it only requires you to finish. Have fun pushing through this round on the hardest difficulty. Finish it though and youíll have a nice trophy to add to your collection.

Alternatively if you're not up to the challenge, you can play any round you want and on the last putt on the 18th; before you win, you can set the difficulty to Simulation. Finish off that final putt, and your trophy will also pop. Thanks Tinny448 for this trick.

In the Spotlight
Finish in 1st place of a Featured Event

Go to Quick Play>Featured Event. Play the event listed and finish first, simple as that. Once you finish first your trophy will pop.

Boost your Game
Play an 18 hole round with Boost Pins equipped

Pins are power ups essentially that you have the option of using before the start of each round. You start off with 5 different bronze level pints each with 5 uses each on them. In your career start up a round, and before the round begins it will ask you to select the pins you would like to use. You have slots for 3 separate pins at the same time, but for this trophy you only need to select one. Select the pin of your choice and it will take you to the start of the round. Finish the full round to get the trophy.

Pin Collector
Complete a Bronze or better Boost Pin set (Any course)

This trophy is the most time consuming, and is completely reliant on luck. Much like other EA Sports games, this trophy requires you to open packs of cards simply hoping that what you needs comes out. Pins can be bought from the main menuís store. Enter and click on buy pin packs. Once inside youíll notice that there are three different types, a low, medium and high level. The high level packs cost the most but also give out the best pins needed for some collections. You buy pins with the coins that you earn from completing rounds and challenges; in other words, unless you want to buy the coins with real money through the PlayStation store expect a long grind if youíre an unlucky person.

Completing a boost pin set requires you to open enough cards and filling all the slots for the set. These sets consist of 1 pin for every hole of every course. You will need to open enough packs to get all of a courseís pins to receive the trophy.

Legendary Rivalry
Play the Marathon scenario in Quick Tournaments with Nicklaus & Palmer in the U.S. Open at Oakmont

Before you attempt this trophy, you must beat both Nicklaus and Palmer in the Legends of the Masters event to unlock both players.

Go to quick tournaments, and select the U.S. Open at Oakmont. From there, the first things it shows is the scenario you would like to play. Select the marathon scenario. Select golfers you being either Nicklaus or Palmer and assigning the CPU the character you didnít pick. You donít need to win just finish the game and you will receive the trophy.

PGA TOUR Top FOUR
Play a Quick Tournament with Snead, Woods, Nicklaus, and Hogan. (Any PGA TOUR Tournament)

You must unlock Snead, Nicklaus, and Hogan in Legends of the Master before attempting this trophy.

Select quick tournament and then select any PGA Tour event including the Master, PGA Championship, US Open and British Open. Select your golfer as whichever of the four out of Snead, Woods, Nicklaus and Hogan that you want to be and then select the remaining characters and assign them to the CPU slots. Play the round and your trophy will pop.

PGA Champions, Repeat?
Play Holding the Lead in Quick Tournaments with Woods, McIlroy, Bradley in the PGA Champ at Oak Hill

Select quick tournament and then the PGA Championship at Oak Hill. Set the scenario to play holding the lead and pick your golfer out of Woods, Mcllroy, and Bradley. Make the remaining two golfers the two that you didn’t pick, play the round and BAM! Trophy.

High Heels
Win On Their Heels at Kraft Nabisco with Thompson against Lewis, and Creamer in Quick Tournaments

Go into quick tournaments and select LPGA Tour, and then Kraft Nabisco. Pick the scenario On Their Heels. Pick Lexi Thompson as your golfer; select Paula Creamer and Stacy Lewis for the AI characters, and then go play the round. No matter how well you do one of the two AI players will always stay close behind. Just continue to hit your shots, and don’t be worried if the two computers are only a stroke or so behind. Once you win the event the trophy will pop.

Past, Present, & Future
Play the In the Hunt scenario with Jones, Woods, Watson and a Created Golfer at the Masters

You must unlock Bobby Jones in Legends of the Masters before you attempt this trophy.
Once you unlock Jones, select the masters in quick tournament and under the 4 player scenarios you will see in the hunt. Select that scenario, and select any of the four golfers in the trophy description. Make the AI the remaining golfers. You do not need to win the event; just simply play it the full way through and you will receive the trophy.

Troon Open Champion
Win Two in the Running in Quick Tournaments using Palmer in the Open Championship at Royal Troon

First you must unlock Palmer after beating him in Legends of the Masters.

After unlocking him, choose the Open Championship and make sure the course selected is the Royal Troon. Select the scenario two in the hunt. Select Palmer as your golfer, and select a poor golfer such as Marshall Faulk as the AI opponent. Both you and the AI will start tied a couple strokes ahead of the rest of the field. Hit your shots, and win the round to receive your trophy.

Living Legend
Become the All-Time Win Leader in each of the four Major Leaderboards in Quick Tournaments

To earn this trophy, you must be the all-time leader in wins for each major championship. As it stands now, the following are the all-time wins leader for each major.

Masters: Jack Nicklaus - 6 wins
U.S. Open: Willie Anderson - 4 wins
Open Championship: Harry Vardon - 6 wins
PGA Championship: Walter Hagen - 5 wins

This means that you will need to win 7 Masters, 5 U.S. Opens, 7 Open Championships, and 6 PGA championships. Set the AI difficulty to easy to make this trophy a breeze to go through. To make this go quicker, you can set up the scenario as Solo Leader, so you can start with a lead, and in the later rounds, making the work load much less. You cannot receive this trophy through your career, none of the majors won in career mode will count towards this trophy. You MUST do these through quick tournament. Once you take over the all times wins lead in each major, you will receive the trophy.

Never leave home without it
Earn PGA TOUR card in Career

When you first make your player in your career mode you will be in the US Amateur tour. Win an event there and you will be upgraded to the Web.com Tour. To advance past the Web.com Tour and onto the PGA tour you will have to win 3 events or come in the top 50 of the tour. The quickest way by far is to win your first 3 events in the Web.com Tour where and afterwards you will join the PGA Tour and get your trophy.

LPGA Carded
Earn LPGA Tour Card in Career

Create a female golfer and start your career with her. Play the first two events so that you can enter the Symetra Tour, the LPGA equivalent of the web.com tour. To get to the LPGA tour you will need to come in the top 10 in the money list to move up to the LPGA. You have the option at the beginning of the Symetra Tour to set your options, I personally set it to easy AI, 1 round tournaments, and LIVE weather making it quick and easy to get through this trophy. Play through the whole season consistently finishing high on the tournament leaderboards to earn more money. With the AI set on easy you will be able to win tournaments with a score of around -3 making this an easy trophy to get just one that will take a little time. Finish in the top 10 in the money list by the end of the Symetra Tour events, and you will move up the LPGA and receive your trophy.

Green Jacket
Win the Green Jacket in Career or Quick Tournaments with a created golfer

The green jacket is the prize for the winner of the Masters. The Masters is a major PGA event held in Augusta, Georgia every year. Once you make your way to the PGA Tour you can begin to play major championships including the Masters US Open, Open Championship, and PGA Championship. These tournaments are held on some of the most difficult courses in the world, and the field always brings their A game.

Win each of these respective championships in either your career mode or in quick tournament, and not only be awarded with a huge sum of money and loads of FedEx player of the year points, but also a trophy for each new major win.

U.S. Open Trophy
Win the U.S. Open in Career or Quick Tournaments with a created golfer

Claret Jug
Win the Open Championship in Career or Quick Tournaments with a created golfer

First Class
Win the FedExCup (Career Only)

After each event, you are awarded FedExCup points based on the position you finished the tournament you played in. The FedExCup is essentially the MVP award for the PGA tour showing the best golfer of the year. If you want this trophy, you’ll have to win as many events as you can and you will need to do well in the big tournaments, that means majors, not just the smaller tournaments.

You must do this in career mode, as you only receive FedEx points in this mode. Play on easy with the AI on easy difficulty to give yourself an easier time, and ensure that you win these tournaments and seal your spot at the top of the leaderboard.

King of the Hill
Become #1 in the EA SPORTS Golf Rankings

You need to get this trophy in career mode. As you continue to play tournaments, your rank will fluctuate depending on how well you do and in what tournaments. You can get this trophy by the end of your first year in career if you win at least 3 of the 4 major tournaments; winning the big tournaments has the most effect on your golfer rank. I suggest that in career that once you are in the PGA Tour, you play every event ensuring that you receive the various trophies, such as the ones for winning the masters and the FedExCup. After you reach the #1 ranking, your trophy will pop.

Record Breaker
Become a Legend in Career mode by completing all the PGA TOUR Goals

On your career main menu, when looking at your player card to the left, you can hit to view your career goals. These goals consist of things, such as attaining the most Master's wins or winning the FedEx cup twice. Other simple ones include leading a certain amount of times in events and so on and so forth. This trophy is fairly straight forward, and it may sound like it will take a while, but after your first career mode season, you should be able to sim up to the major championships without fail, and continue to rack of the wins towards the goals.

Last Name Legend
Legend all events in Legends of the Majors

Legends of the Majors tasks you to take down and recreate difficult tasks of legendary events from the past. These challenges can be very difficult tasking you to sink ridiculous shots, hit ridiculous scores, and take down golfing's greatest players of all time. There is both a completion level and a legend level; you must complete the legend level to get this trophy. Some of these challenges are very easy, while others are near impossible and take shear luck to complete. The following are challenges that you could possibly run into trouble.

Bobby Jones: This is the first hard challenge you'll face. To get legend in the event, you need to beat him by 2 strokes in 4 holes. Bobby Jones is fantastic and will birdie on only 1 hole if you're lucky. You should fully expect to birdie 3 of the 4 holes and par one of the holes he does. That's the bare minimum you can do. The first hole is the hardest, so if you can birdie that hole you'll be in good shape for the rest of the challenge. To take any variables out of the equation, you can birdie every hole, they simply won't allow him to hit 3 and you will win the challenge.

Shot Heard Around the World (1935): This is by FAR the hardest challenge to get legend on in the game. It not only takes good set up and a perfect shot, but also a lot of luck. Don't be surprised if you shot this shot 100 times before you sink it. Set up your shot consistently and make small adjustments each time refining your shot. This video shows the best strategy for the shot and it should be followed closely. Thanks dctx6xbox for the video.

Snead and Hogan: In this challenge, you'll play against both Snead and Hogan in a stroke play event. You'll need to win by 2 to legend the event. The game will send one of the golfers after you, essentially trying to keep pace with you throughout the event, while the other will most likely be far away from the top of the leaderboard by the end. The course played is easy, and it will be a very birdie filled round. When I played, Snead finished at -4 and I finished at -10. As long as you make your putts you should be fine.

Amen's Corner (1958): This challenge is a pretty tough one. The 3 holes consist of a tough birdie par 4, a very tough birdie par 3, and an easy eagle par 5. The wind blows hard, making this challenge much harder than it has to be. I suggest that you continue to restart the event until you birdie on the first hole. The second hole has a very small green making it extremely easy to overshoot the green. The greens are easy and level on both holes, so coming out with a birdie on one and a par on the other is perfect. The par 5's green can easily be reached in two shots, lining you up for an eagle putt and the win. You're going to have to make this eagle if you want a chance to win; the other two holes are just collectively too hard.

Gary Player (1961): This is a hard chip. Put the aim cursor at 18 yds, and keep it dead on straight like they set you up with. Hit a perfect shot both straight and distance wise (maybe a little bit of an overswing), and your ball should go out of the bunker, hit the little hill on the green and roll towards the cup. You ball may hit the cup and bounce out because of the pin and speed of the ball, but keep doing this and you will complete the challenge.

Trevino: Much like Bobby Jones, you'll need to beat him in a match play event. Also much like Jones, you will need to birdie at least 3 out of the 4 holes to win. He tends to birdie the 3rd hole, so watch out. Aim for the middle of the green, and use Poulter's good spin to get the ball close to the hole. Watch though as his balls fly low so they bounce far.

Seve's First Four (1983) For this to be possible, you need to have a very strong wind at your back for the 2nd hole or 3rd hole. You'll need to birdie the first and last hole, both of which are relatively easy holes. The 2nd hole almost requires a strong wind at your back to make it the distance enough to hit an eagle. If you have a strong back wind at the 2nd that also means you can get a strong back wind at the 3rd. With the back wind at the third, aiming to the right towards the tree line and a full spin forward you can easily make it to the green in one shot or even hit a hole in one. I think it's easier to go birdie, eagle, eagle, par but anyway to get 5 under and you're good to go.

This is a very easy trophy that takes no more than a couple seconds to obtain. Enter a practice round setting the time of day to night. That’s the only setting you need; the weather, difficulty, hole, none of that matters. Once you select the time of day, it’s time to select your golfer.

Some of you may notice that out of all the golfers, two don’t seem to fit. One, Marshall Faulk, an ex-football NFL star and Tiger 14 spokesperson, and Scott Ratchman and made up character by EA. Scott Ratchman has the unfortunate job of being the werewolf for players to play as. Any type of round at any course if you pick Scott Ratchman for a night round, you will be playing as a werewolf and receive your trophy.

Pai Mei
Earn Golfer Level 50 with a created golfer

Your Golfer Level is a gauge that tells you generally how good your created golfer is. Gaining levels unlocks attribute points to assign to the various skills your player has, as well as equipment for your player.

To gain Golfer Levels, you earn experience points for things such as hitting the fairway in regulation, sinking longs putts, making par, etc, etc. Tournament rounds offer the best form of experience, giving you multipliers for finishing well and for the difficulty you play on. In the early levels, you can gain between 2 and 3 levels per tournament round playing on pro difficulty. You’ll gain levels in that way, until you hit around level 40 where it will take a round to gain about a level and a half.

Difficulty modifiers, such as turning off putting assist, making striking the ball harder, and turning off the green grid, all add to the difficulty multiplier that multiplies your experience gained at the end of each round. Though you may not get as good of a score, attempt to make the game harder if you are up to the task, and score some extra experience points.

Alternatively, if you have a save file from last years' iteration, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13, you can import it and instantly be the golfer level of that file. Thank TwiztidDGM for the tip.

Secret Trophies

Morning Glory
Sink a birdie on Pebble 7 with Time of Day set to Morning

Select Pebble Beach, and set the time of day to morning. Set the wind and weather conditions to calm, and play through the entire course up until the par 3 7th hold. You MUST play though the entire course; you cannot simply select the 7th hole. See Accuracy Player; that is a guide on how to get a hole in one on the hole, so it will tell you how to get an easy birdie. Once you sink the birdie putt your trophy will pop.

I don't think Morning Glory can be gotten by custom selecting Hole 7, I'm pretty sure you have to start from Hole 1 and play your way to it. Nice start on the guide though.

You are correct I wrote that and never changed it. Good catch.

Also if anyone knows any really good holes for Gone with the Wind please don't hesitate to help me out. That's actually the reason I posted the guide already, I can't find a really fail proof hole for it.

Hey dude, pin collector is the wrong image, also for the 40ft putt and the no wind trophy and simulation difficulty you can do very easily, for example the putt you can line up the putt and even use the preview then change to beads off then hit it to get the trophy, same for the wind on the other, also for simulation you can change on the very last putt on the 18th even after using preview to simulation hit the last putt and ding trophy pops.

Best thing to do it start a round with ratchman at night to get them all inside 18 holes obviously changing wind and beads accordingly to get 5 trophys that is.

I'll change the image, I wrote that you can use the guidelines for the 40ft putt and turn them off right before the putt and I thought I had mentioned that for the wind also. I however was unaware you could do that for the simulation trophy, I'll add it and give you credit.

Also I have a roadmap outlined with things like that last thing you said in it. Just need to refine it tonight.
