View Full Version : EZ Aces High!!!

Ok so I just got Aces high and here is what i did.

I went to the EA gamernet challenges and did a search for single hole, score win condition, on st andrews and I chose one called st andrews 9 and it's score to match was -3. Then I chose donald something, he is the third one to the right and his power is 9 which is perfect for this hole. all you have to do is just hit the ball with no added power (my average swing was a 98) and if you miss you hit start and retry (before the ball stops moving preferably so you don't have to wait to que up the next shot) it takes like 10 seconds to retry instead of the guides method of completing the hole and doing it all over with a different wind. My method, the wind stays the same and for the one I chose, it was only 1 mph so it didn't make much difference. Got the cheeve when it went to the score screen. Hope this helps! Much easier than guides method IMO!

this was great advice. I had tried using the guide's advice with no luck. I got the achievement this way on my second attempt. I posted a new challenge with the same settings called "ACE EASY JUST PICK DONALD"

Nice one, found the challenge on the 3rd or 4th page, took me quite a few attempts though :D kept missing by 0.001mm it felt like.

:(

I was trying for 10mins pressing B to retry every time. I finally sank it, but no achievement.

I guess you have to hit start and then retry?

EDIT: Just dropped it AGAIN this time everytime i missed i hit start then retry and still didnt get the achievement.

you have to wait for the score to come up...like did you actually let it go and take you back to the EA Gamernet screen and it still didn't pop? or did you just retry after it didn't pop right after it went in. Cuz it popped when it was rewarding me my challenge points and showed me my -3 for the hole...

i was having problems hitting exactly 98 percent. kept hitting 99, and it kept hitting the pin and kicking out. so i angled my club just a little bit and it worked. awesome tip. spent a grand total of about 10 minutes tweaking things. no sweat!

I must be doing something wrong because I've busted two different hole in ones and I never received the achievement.

Yeah i waited for the score screen both times.

And to answer the other suggestion yes i had mulligans off.

A little frustrating but im sure ill get it eventually.

Lame. I aced St. Andrews 9, and I didn't get the achievement.

I did a EA Game Challenge. I couldn't find anyone who has posted here challenge.

I did someone else's. While I failed their challenge because I didn't hit the bounce zone, I did make it in. I let everything role as normal, and no achievement popped up.

Random side note: I used Morgan pressel because Donald's average swing of 95 power was too much.

The Geest
07-04-2009, 05:31 PM
Just got this on about my 5th attempt.

I have reposted the challenge so either look for The Geest or find the St. Andrews Hole 9 - challenge title Pick Donald Hit 98%

Hope this helps someone.

Worked great. I ended up getting the hole in 1 with 103% power so it does not have to be 98% on the dot. Took me no more than 15 minutes this way. Rock on!

07-05-2009, 10:51 AM
I am having a problem finding your guy's gamernet andrews 9.

When I search your gamertags i find all the holes you have posted, but the andrews one. Any thoughts?

I have gotten 4-5 Aces withe this method and no achievement, any ideas what I might be doing wrong? is it possibly because I hit "retry" after I miss, instead of backing out and completely restarting the challenge? .....

Add me to that list... 3 Aces and still no achievement!!!

Edit: Make that 4 times now... Do a search for my GT, i've posted the shots to Gamernet so peole can take a look and see if i'm doing something wrong. This is just horrible... EA are getting an email.

2nd Edit: Oh my god... 5th time, PING!!! Achievement unlocked! This is a wonderful game but EA's curse with achievement glitches has crept in here slightly.

You're lucky you got it on your fifth ace. I've gotten 8-9 using the GamerNet method, and yet still no achievement. Yes, I've waited all the way to the end, went out, started it back up again, another ace, another disappointment.

This is a great suggestion. Unfortunately, the achievement wouldn't unlock for me. After 6 aces and no achievement, I decided to try the guide method. Using Donald, I hit an ace about 8 or 9 holes in, and the achievement unlocked.

I just got this after about ten minutes and have posted the same challenge back onto gamernet. I also recorded how I did it.

The wind was three mph left to right, I did not move the aiming cursor at all and hit a 97% shot with Luke Donald. Then I held left on the stick and tapped A five times to put spin on it.
Hope this helps anyone still needing it, GT is "monkeehands" and thanks to OP for the tip

CanuckLefty
10-28-2009, 09:04 PM
I just posted the one I made. The outer circle of the target area should just straddle the pin, I hit a 3-wood (using a max stats costume as myself) 105% and put a touch of spin towards one-o'clock.

Don't give up, whoever is still trying for this, I played my 'boost' course probably six times.

qubiq
10-29-2009, 11:10 PM
I just posted the one I made on Gamernet

only 1MPH wind coming right at you ...

take Luke Donald ... don't move the target, hit your driver 96% dead straight, when it's in the air spin the ball right and tap A 4 times ... I tested this and got it 3 times in a row.

Must have got it in on 3 different challenges about 5 or 6 times and still no achievement, guess i'll just get lucky eventually. Strange though on my player stats/resume the number of hole in ones or double eagles hasn't gone up either :S

01-11-2010, 09:45 AM

Could they have patched this?

I searched for Andrews 9 and found 4 unrelated challenges, so I made a custom course of all Andrews 9, left the white tees, soft green, set to sunny and clear and after about 40 hole outs with Donald got the hole-in-one.

I posted the challenge, but it wasn't ideal - I had to do some spin and aiming... you could take the challenge or do what I did.

Still having real trouble with this have played about 4 full 18 holes of st andrews 9th with Donald (can't connect to xboxlive to do the online way at the moment) and still haven't sunk it. :(

Last offline achieve left too :(
