44 Pins

Drive Bomber- 350+ yards from the tee, land on fairway, green, fringe or in cup
Play a course with Gale Force winds. Youíll get this on the hole where the wind blows out.

First Birdie- Get the first birdie of your career
See 250 Birdies.

First Eagle- Get the first eagle of your career
See 100 Eagles.

First Ace- Get the first ace of your career
See 25 Aces.

Flagstick Seeker- Hit the flagstick for the first time
This will take time. Just take dead-aim every time. This is probably easiest done with a chip shot.

See 250 Birdies.

50 Birdies- Get 50 career birdies
See 250 Birdies.

100 Birdies- Get 100 career birdies

25 Eagles- Get 25 career eagles
See 100 Eagles.

50 Eagles- Get 50 career eagles

Play career mode a lot. Try to take advantage of the par 5's and short par 4's.

10 Aces- Get 10 career aces
See 25 Aces.

25 Aces- Get 25 career aces
Play the Augusta Par 3 a lot of times. This works best when you have maxed out your skills. Play until you have accumulated 25 aces. Aces on custom courses do NOT count.

You can also try this method by Stewie Griffin2:
If you're looking for a way to speed this up, try this one out. The par 3 challenge at the masters requires you to finish 3 under your first year, then adds 1 more stroke each year after that. If you finish with a higher score, you lose the challenge. So here goes.

First, get yourself to the Masters in your season. Start the Par 3 challenge. On the first hole, if you don't get your ace, hit start and then restart the event. Continue doing this until you get an ace there, then play through the rest of the round. If you don't get an ace on a hole, try to par it or work on other challenges, such as the X-distance putts. On the 9th hole, if you're more than than the required shots below par, hit the ball into the water until you will FAIL the challenge.

Finish the round, it will save the ace(s) you got for the round, reward you any necessary XP, and you can repeat the challenge. This allows you to play the first hole over and over without ever waiting for loads or having to finish holes until you gurantee yourself at least 1 ace for the round.

Obviously, this keeps you from playing through the rest of your season, but if it saves you hours of time in the end then it's worth it, right?

6 Birdie Streak- Get 6 birdies in a row
See 18 Birdie Streak.

12 Birdie Streak- Get 12 birdies in a row
See 18 Birdie Streak.

18 Birdie Streak- Get 18 birdies in a row
Play any course in the career mode. Birdie each hole. If you mess up a hole, don't finish the hole. Then select the save and quit option from the pause menu. It won't save progress on the current hole and then you can resume your round.

Back To Back Eagles- Get 2 eagles in a row
Same idea as 18 Birdie Streak.

Eagle Extravaganza- Get 4 eagles in a round
Use the same strategy as 18 Birdie Streak. Only when you don't eagle a par 5 quit out.

Eagle Hunt- Eagle every par 5 on 12 courses
Play the par 5ís a lot. Try to keep track of which you eagled and which you didnít. You can check which courses that you eagled every par 5 on by checking in your course mastery objectives.

Hazard Free Round- No water, bunker, out of bounds or lateral hazards for an entire round
I found this to be easiest at Waialae.

No Focus- Use no focus during a round
Play a round on tournament difficulty.

Hole Out From Bunker- Hole out from any bunker on the course
This takes time and skill. I got it on Waialae 18 from the right green bunker.


Up And Down From Bunker- Hit out of the bunker onto the green and sink the putt
This is a simple sand save.

Presidents Cup- Start the Presidents Cup
Play the Presidents Cup in Quick Play.

Caddie Book Of Gold- Master 16 courses
Complete all of the tasks of all the courses.

Everytime i try and boost my birdies/eagles etc on either:

Quick Play: Play Now

or

Road to the Masters: My Career: My Golfer: Tune Your Game: Practice Round

with playing my custom 18 holes off the 9th at St Andrews i don't get any XP and all of my birdies/eagles do not register with the game!

Can anyone advice what i'm doing wrong?

I think it's because neither of those modes actually relate to your career stats. In order for you to gain XP it has to be during tournaments or tournament sanctioned events. Practice rounds and Quick Play don't fall under those categories.

That's my guess, I could be wildly off base.

Philip1979
04-02-2011, 10:31 AM
I agree Pro so this guide isn't that correct as you can not create a custom round and get 18 birdie streak etc. Must be another way around it! ;)

Sorry I earned them legit. I thought you could use customs because of what I heard. I heard other people saying that you could do this off of the custom course. I fixed it in the guide.

I can confirm that you do not get XP from playing a custom course. If anyone knows a way around this, I would love to hear how. But I'm only getting XP in the Masters mode.

TPC San Antonio Hole 16 seems like it could be a good place to try and get a hole out from the bunker. Considering the bunker is in the middle of the green. I haven't tried it yet though.

That's another good idea. But getting into the bunker may be difficult.

Damn some of those are gonna be time consuming. I don't look forward to playing the same hole to get 25 Aces.

I wondered if we'd be able to do that with this game. EA Sports have finally got wise. That was always an easy way to get stats levels up.

Correct, you can't unlock it under custom courses.

Does the prototype club pin unlock after you've unlocked one prototype club or all does anyone know? Like if i unlock prototype wedges but still have levels to go on the others will i get the pin

You've got to unlock all of them to get the pin. You only need to unlock 1 of them and equip it to get the achievement. You will NOT get the pin if you unlock the clubs by buying the level 4 sponsorships, so if you're going for one of the two most grueling achievements in the game (unlock all pins) don't buy the levels.

They won't unlock till you have completed the last Sponsors challenges. Once you have done all the NIKE, PING challenges completed then you can select the prototype drivers, woods, irons, wedges and putter!

Cheers for the reply mate do you know if buying Sponsor event pro shop bits IE Oakley and Adidas effect the prototype pin?

I know it's difficult to please everyone, but you've got to put more detail in your descriptions.

For instance;

25 Aces- Get 25 career aces
Play the Augusta Par 3.

That's not enough. Just some constructive criticism.

Sawgrass is a pretty easy bunker hole out.

You should really consider adding my strategy for 25 aces into the guide. I know you don't think that fastest is best, but the people reading your guide do. If you need me to write it up again, just let me know.

Stewie Griffin2
04-17-2011, 07:49 AM
u can use custom for 25 hole in 1s pin, but i did custom for my hole in 1 for nike sponser level 4 and got nothing as it has to be in the master, for sponsers to count, i also got hole in 1 on augusta par 3s this also did not finish of my nike sponser,

You could use custom, but it's not the fastest way. Also, sponsor challenges must be completed in tournaments in Road to the Masters. There's no other game mode that they can be completed in.

Sorry I miss read your method the first time. I didn't realize that if you fail a challenge that you could play it again. Otherwise I would have put your method up from the beginning.

No big deal. I'd actually suggest just restarting the event after your tee shot on the 2nd, assuming you don't hole that one out as well. Speeds it up even more, and helps avoid getting to the 9th hole and not having enough strokes to give to fail.

Edit: I also didn't mean that to sound as harsh/critical as it did when I reread it. I was just referring to a post you made last week saying that it's not really necessary or as much fun to do it as quickly as possible.

Yes but it won't unlock if the 25th is on a custom course.

The 18 Birdie Streak isn't hard... just save and quit if you miss a putt. If you're playing on Amateur and trying to burn through seasons, you're likely birdie'ing every hole anyways... right?

25 Aces is by far the hardest... Augusta Par 3 all day I guess?

If you look at your Bag Tag while loading Augusta/Augusta Par 3, you'll notice that your Active Sponsor Tag is gone, therefore any objectives towards that sponsor often won't count. It's weird because for Nike Lv 4, you have to complete tasks in the Masters...

Sorry about that. I wrote this a while back before the quit out and save method become well known. It's very easy if you have maxed stats.

25 Aces took me the longest out of anything in the game. Augusta Par 3 will work. You can use custom courses but you must make sure your 25th isn't a custom course. I finally got my 25th on the first par 3 of the Dunes Course this past Saturday allowing me to get my 1000G.

So for the pins, you can use custom courses to tally up the eagles and aces, but you need to do a final one in career mode for it to activate?

Edit: Just read through the thread, my assumption appears to be correct.

Yes, this is exactly what I did. Got about a dozen holes-in-one over the course of my Road to the Masters career. When I had completed the 7th win and 281 weeks on top, I made a course of all #17 at Sawgrass. I played that about twenty times until I had 24 aces. My 25th was the Flowering Crabapple at Augusta under Course Mastery. Bingo, bango, sugar in the gas tank.

I think it is a similar approach to the Bingo Bango Bongo achievement from TW10.

Here's my question... To unlock to Prototype outfits I still need one more Oakley sponsor challenge. I'm at the FedEx Cup portion of my 4th season, I've completed 51 sponsor challenges and they're not coming up anymore. Will it eventually pop up or am I screwed on this one?

You should eventually get to a tournament where you get the Oakley Challenge. I think it might have been the last one that I completed.
