I decided it was about time someone wrote a guide to this one instead of searching Google every time. I have used enough before so I thought I'd give it a crack although this is my first guide so bear with me. Thanks for all that have helped make this as accurate as possible.

Overall the game is pretty linear and you will pick up most of the achievements just going through the "Road to the Masters" game. However there are a couple of things I wish I had known so thought I would help others out.

ROADMAP

This is going to be a large roadmap but it is important to get to various levels in time, otherwise you have to complete all 8 seasons again with a new golfer which would take hours and hours.

-Estimated achievement difficulty: 5/10
-Offline: 42 (925http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg)
-Online: 4 (75http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg) Pin Collector 50g, GamerNet Tourist 10g, Hold my bag as I post my clip 5g, and Online Participation 10g
(took me about ~2 hours for all except pin collector which requires winning 10 games online and I am yet to unlock)
-Approximate amount of time to 1000http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg: 60-70 hours
-Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 1 (8 seasons) (If you get #1 in the world fast enough)
-Number of missable achievements: 10
Who's your caddie - only missed if you skip the prologue. Only way to get it again is to start a new char.
Broken Record (Be #1 for 281 weeks)
Masters Legend (Win the Green Jacket for a Record 7 times in the Road to the Masters mode.)
Training Wheels and Give me the Goodies if you choose not to participate in a sponsored or training event.
Shark Attack - Equip a Prototype club by uplocking all that type of club (Eg all putters for the Prototype putter)
HAMMERhead Swag - Equip a HAMMERhead Outfit by unlocking all outfits
4x Sponsorship achievements - you have to play with a level 4 Ping, Cleveland, Nike and Callaway club.

-Glitched achievements: pin collector is a tad buggy if you purchase the clubs with m$ points.

According to BillJones0302 "Your reference to a "glitched" achievement might actually be referring to Pin Collector. There are 44 pins required to unlock this achievement. One pin in particular (Hammerhead pin) requires that you unlock all of the Hammerhead clubs (by acquiring level 4 sponsorships) during tournament play. If you purchase level 4 sponsorships with Microsoft points, the pin will not unlock. It is buggy (as you put it), but it does unlock with tournament play, therefore, I do not believe it is glitched."

Thanks Bill!

-Do cheat codes disable achievements?: No Cheats

Introduction

In Tiger Woods 2012 the idea is to be able to play at The Masters. This requires you to work your way from an amateur tour all the way to The Masters.

The fastest way to 1000g is to play on Amateur, set rounds to 1 and abuse the LB and focus.

Before that though you learn how to play by playing as Tiger Woods for the 5th Green Jacket. The first achievement you can get here is after taking your shot and the ball is mid-flight double tap Y (yellow) which will unlock Tiger Quickness for 10g. Double tapping Y (Tiger Quickness) can save hours - especially if you know it is straight down the middle on a drive or you don't want to apply focus.

You cannot miss this putt and you win the Green Jacket. Cue Cut-Scene and 5g for Whos your caddie?!

Next you have to create your Pro and choose your level. All achievements except 1 will be unlocked at Amateur level and this can be changed at any point. The higher the level you set this at, the more XP you will get and faster your character will max out his/her stats. Having played a fair bit in the past I had it set to pro which was fairly easy.

Now it is time to start your Road to the Masters. You start with the EA Tiburon Classic. Landing your first drive on the fairway will earn you FIR for 5g. Hitting the next shot onto the green will earn your a futher 5g for GIR. Your Caddie needs to level up a bit so take what he says with a pinch of salt at first although he does take into account wind speed etc. This is an easy competition as the rest of the field score +1 at best meaning coming in at par or better will win you the tournament after the 9 holes.

Take this oportunity to press start - goto options and turn EA GamerNet Daily Challenges on. I presume this requires gold membership and EA Code. Next time you take a shot that is half decent press RT and post challenge. this will net you Hold my bag as I post my clip. (5g)

During this initial round I picked up a couple of achievements.

Putted a 30ft putt earns 10g Egg on the dancefloor (the greens here are as flat as you will get)
Ignore your caddy and land within 1yd of the flagstick from over 100 yards I Got This 15g

You will then qualify for the AM tour.

Before starting the AM Tour I would complete a couple of extra things first. Completing a couple of the Masters Moments will give you some XP that I strongly advise you spend on Power - Swing speed and Putting initially. some of the later ones require you to have levelled up a bit first.

Live Tournament
I got this achievement by taking part in a live event using my golfer. You can use Tiger here but the ~5k experience seems wasted to me if you choose that option. Eventually you will need to win 10 online games for pin collector.

Goto the main menu and select Quick Play - XB Live - Live Tournaments to find them. Complete 18, post a score and net yourself 10g Online Participation.

Now go to Quickplay - Tiger at the Masters - 2005 - Round 1 - play round. You don't even have to play it but you will get 15g History is Yours.

Next it's Quickplay - The President's cup. Win this for 15g and The Presidents Cup Champion.

If you do play it however this is a good oportunity to get Choke Artist 15g. To do this you need to push the right stick in until it says choked. Land within 1 yard of the flagstick using a choked approach shot from at least 50 yards out for the achievement.

Now back to career mode.

AM Tournament

The first option is Holiday Amateur cup.
Complete and win the training challenge for 10g Training Wheels (can be tricky at first)
Complete and win the Sponsor Event for a further 10g Give me the Goodies. Equip the items you unlock.
Complete the AM tour for 10g Aspiring Amateur.

Listen to your caddies instructions 25 times in a round for 15g I AM CADDIE!

Now complete Nationwide Tour for We've only just begun 15g

At this time I unlocked I got this 15g for landing within 100 yards of the flagstick and ignoring the caddie.

Now complete Q-school for Earned my Card 20g

By now you should have unlocked 3 pins. Equip them from the pin awards page to unlock Bling my Tag for 15g

The next thing to do is to check this thread (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=304880) out and plan how you want to work your sponsorships out.

Finally get on the PGA Tour and into the top 100 to qualify for the Masters. The key is to get to #1 in the world as fast as possible. the hardest achievement in game is Broken Record which requires you to hold the #1 spot for 281 weeks. Most reports I have read is that the career mode lasts 9 years, meaning you have to be #1 by the end of the first season of play. I will confirm this at a later date. Otherwise the achievements will pop on their own as and when. It is worth having a club of each sponsor you unlock equipped as you can add to more than one progress even if it is not selected and can save some time later.

The final online achievement is GamerNet Tourist which requires you to spend an hour on the GamerNet challenges and notch up 2500 points. These can be found on the Quickplay - XBL - EASports GamerNet - Online challenges. These points are accumulative and don't require you to complete on the same day. I found completing the freestyle ones quickest. These may well pop during normal play too so might be worthwhile leaving until last if your aim is to 1000g this as quick as possible and move on as you will already have some points towards this.

Massive thanks to BillJones0302, DarkSeraphim198 and xplanetpiscesx for spotting mistakes and proofreading this roadmap. Much appreciated! Please drop any more amendments at the bottom and I'll adjust accordingly.

Sink a Hole in One using a Caddie Recommendation.

This one is easiest on Amateur although I got it on pro fairly early on. Most par 3s are reachable in the game and the key is to use the spin after you have taken a shot. This is essential as the Caddie is useless at first. Even with his faults it's worth remembering that he is useful at selecting the right club for the height / weather conditions & you have to keep it in his initial setup for it to pop. If you think it needs to go further left than he suggests then as you push the stick back forward slightly curve the forward path to the left. A bit of trial & error and you'll get to grips with this.

This has to be completed in Road to the Masters.

Master 16 Courses

Again this requires patience and will pop once you have mastered 16 courses.

Every time you play on a course you have the chance to complete objectives for that course. To see your current objectives go to Road to the Masters - My Career - Course Mastery.

You can see which courses you have at which level. The higher your level here, the better your Caddie is at picking a decent shot out.

Me and a mate play each other online a fair bit, and we pick courses that we know we need to improve our mastery on as this doesn't have to be Road to the Masters.

Become #1 in the EA SPORTS Golf Rankings

This is an offline achievement and is part of Road to the Masters. Becoming #1 doesn't just go on winning tournaments although this helps. You also have to consider you GIR, FIR, number of putts and saves from sand etc. Once you hit #1 the achievement pops. Again if you are struggling turn it to Amateur. It is highly recommended you get this by the end of the 2nd year if you wish to get the broken record achievement.

Earn All Pins

This one is the hardest, and last achievement you will unlock and requires XBL Gold subscription.

Completing various tasks (E.g. 100 birdies) will unlock you a pin, which is similar to a mini-achievement in game. Collect all the pins to unlock this.

The harshest ones include 25 Hole in ones, winning 10 online games, Eagle every par 5 on 12 courses and 18 birdies in a row.

For the aces you can make a custom course of your favourite Par 3 Hole, I think this is done in Practice Round mode. However after obtaining 25 Holes-in-one, you'll still need to get one within a tournament in the Road to the Masters mode. Otherwise it won't unlock the pins for 10/25 Aces.

For the 10 online wins, just make sure its a ranked online match. The 3-hole mini course is ideal to complete as it is very quick to do.

This one is a "proper achievement" and requires a lot of work. It is also a tad buggy if you purchase the level 4 sponsor clubs with m$ points.

According to BillJones0302 "Your reference to a "glitched" achievement might actually be referring to Pin Collector. There are 44 pins required to unlock this achievement. One pin in particular (Hammerhead pin) requires that you unlock all of the Hammerhead clubs (by acquiring level 4 sponsorships) during tournament play. If you purchase level 4 sponsorships with Microsoft points, the pin will not unlock. It is buggy (as you put it), but it does unlock with tournament play, therefore, I do not believe it is glitched."

Complete an 18 hole round under par with Tournament Difficulty turned ON
(http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/tiger-woods-pga-tour-12/achievement/50983-Tournament-Pro.html)
This is MUCH easier than it looks thanks to Ferneeg.

Before you start the round, go to Road to the Masters - My Career - Options - Game Options

Turn the difficulty to tournament.

Go to Road to the Masters, Next Event and play the first hole of the event.
Once it loads up with the second hole, go to "Save and Exit"
Go to the options - settings - turn difficulty to Amateur
Go back to the Road to the Masters - press blue X and load last hole. Complete on this setting until you are on the 18th Tee.
Save and exit again.
Options - Difficulty - Tournament.
Complete the 18th hole on this setting. This achievement will unlock along with no focus even if you used focus during the 16 holes completed on amateur.

I won a 4 star tournament using this method and was awarded 44,000 XP. Possibly a great way of levelling up if you can be bothered going to the options every time. I couldn't!

Story related and cannot be missed. When the game starts you take 3 shots as Tiger. Once you hole the putt this unlocks.

Earn 2,500 Player Points in EA SPORTS™ GamerNet

You need to turn these on in the options before you start. As you go through the game Road to the Masters GN points will slowly tick up and this will eventually unlock. Requires XBL Gold subscription.

These can be found on the Quickplay - XBL - EASports GamerNet - Online challenges. These points are accumulative and don't require you to complete on the same day. I found completing the freestyle ones quickest and got my 2500 in just over an hour. These will pop during normal play too so might be worthwhile leaving until last if your aim is to 1000g this as quick as possible and move on as you will already have some points towards this.

Win The Presidents Cup

The Presidents Cup can be found on the Quickplay menu and relies on your partner to play as well as you. It works similar to the Ryder Cup did in last years' Tiger. Again if you are struggling knock it down to Amateur and you should win easily enough. For President's Cup, set it to four singles matches (and turned off every other type of match), and won the Cup. Bam, chievo unlocked.

Watch out for the commentator calling your partner every name under the sun as well.

Win the Green Jacket for a Record 7 times in the Road to the Masters mode.

Simply win The Masters 7 times in career mode. You have 8 years in which to complete this achievement. The issue for this one is qualifying for the Masters early enough. If you haven't got enough points to unlock it try completing the Masters Moments. As the achievement states you have to get this 7/8 times to unlock.

This isn't too difficult on Amateur.

Win the 2005 Historic Masters Event (Tiger at the Masters)

Go to Quickplay and select the Tiger at the Masters - 2005 Masters.
This will also unlock the History is Yours achievement.

You have to complete all 4 days of this tournament and win it to unlock this achievement. This is one of the trickier ones.

From the Fairway, land within 1 yard of the flagstick from 100 yards out using a Custom shot.

You will probably unlock this early on when you don't believe your Caddie. He talks a load of tosh at first so just pick a club that is 100% to the pin on a non-windy hole and claim your 15g.

Simply go to Quickplay - Tiger at the Masters - 2005 - Round 1 - play round. You don't even have to play it but you will get 15g History is Yours. However you need to win this to get 2005 Masters Champion achievement.

Win both the Par 3 and the Masters on the same week in the Road to the Masters mode.

This achievement lies! It is much simpler than it sounds. Basically before you complete the Masters event you need to complete the Par 3 sponsor challenge and come in under par. Then straight afterwards you need to win the Masters. Simples.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/1768/5-tqEzw=.jpg (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/tiger-woods-pga-tour-12/achievement/50999-Broken-Record.html)Broken Record (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/tiger-woods-pga-tour-12/achievement/50999-Broken-Record.html)40 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.png
Hold down the #1 spot on the EA SPORTS Golf Rankings for more than 281 weeks

This is on the in-game single player leader boards and not online so initial panic over. However, this is still a beast of an achievement.

In career mode you play 9 seasons and the general consensus is that you pretty much need to get #1 in your first year, and win the 7 green jackets of the Masters Legend achievement.

Wampus Cra has kindly pointed out the following but I think if you are not #1 by the end of the second year you definitely should be thinking about restarting.

"Really don't think you got to get #1 in the first year to get the 281 weeks achievement... I mean if you got it at the end of your 2nd year that'd leave 6 years which is 52x6=312 weeks so I think as long as you get it before your 2nd season ends you should be fine."

Some people have mentioned they use a double save system using a memory card and miss the odd event out but only if they are significantly far enough in front. Sounds a lot of hard work to me.

With the EA scammers trying to charge you 4000m$ points for every course on the tour I recommend you don't skip any others. And if you are losing the event you can always quit to dashboard.

Remember you can also save if after 16 holes you are winning and bottle it due to squeeky bum time. Simply quit to dashboard and reload it back up.

Play in a Major with Nike Level 4 Sponsorship equipped

In a similar way that you master the courses by ticking off objectives, you will also receive credit for ticking off sponsor objectives. These have to be completed for Nike, Ping, Callaway and Cleveland.

You can track your progress with each sponsor.

I recommend having an item of each equipped (I.e. Nike putter, Callaway Driver, Cleveland irons) as they seem to tick off even if you don't have them selected as your main sponsor. I would still recommend taking each one up to level 4 before switching over as progress can get lost.

For anyone needing an ace for the Nike level 4 sponsor DeaDMau5 (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/member.php?u=361401) recommends #8 at TPC.

A more in depth explanation of the requirements of each can be found here (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=304880) on a thread by Stewie Griffin2. (Cheers) It makes tracking them and planning ahead a lot easier, which leads to completing them faster.

Equip a HAMMERhead Prototype Club

You can spend real money on this. However I recommend you don't gain this using m$ points as it can make the pin collector achievement go buggy.

To unlock it normally you need to unlock every single club of that type. (I.e. if you want the HAMMERhead irons you have to unlock all the other irons in the game first)

Beat the course record of 63 at the Masters (In Road to the Masters)

Much easier to do this on Amateur. Once you get into full swing of The Masters and PGA tour you will get to Augusta.

One suggestion is to get your course mastery up to gold by playing online with a mate or in normal play so your Caddie can help you out with tricky shots.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/1768/5-1FLBg=.jpg (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/tiger-woods-pga-tour-12/achievement/51000-Masters-Master.html)Masters Master (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/tiger-woods-pga-tour-12/achievement/51000-Masters-Master.html)15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.png

Beat the course record of 20 at Augusta Par 3

Much easier to do this on Amateur. If you are struggling it might be an idea to remove your high irons and replace them with the the wedges. The last trick is if you don't fancy the greens use a punch shot off the tee. quite an easy achievement.

You must score 19 or better to unlock.

Hole in one on Hole 4 of Augusta (only one hole in one has ever been recorded on this hole)

Again I would recommend getting your Caddie to gold level on Augusta and attempt this on Amateur if you are struggling.

I thought I would be clever and found this hole on an EA challenge and just repeated it until I hit the hole-in-one. Sadly even when I got a hole-in-one on this hole on an EA GamerNet challenge it didn't unlock so don't try this as a shortcut. :(

The most reliable method, and the one that has been confirmed by a couple of people now is to go into your course mastery list in Road to the Masters. Select Augusta (should be the selected as soon as you go into the list) and hit http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/a.png to play the course. In the setup menu, go to "Course Options". Go down to Hole Select and set it at Custom Select. Now hit the http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/a.png button again and select ONLY hole 4, make sure there aren't any others selected. Set the pins to Thursday, the tees to white and start playing. If you don't make it, just quit and restart as your settings will be saved.

TY to Stewie Griffin2 (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/member.php?u=104887).

MisterXDave has pointed out that this has to be on Augusta, not the par 3 course.

Cossack William adds that you can simply go to quick play, select only hole 4 of the Augusta National, and select four players. That way you get 4 attempts at the hole under the same condition. Found this method quicker than the one mentioned in the guide, and was able to sink it on my second attempt. (ty sleeper cell 01 too)

Good luck with the guide! An ambitious undertaking. I realize thus far you are assembling a roadmap; however, I believe you are mistaken about the number of offline and online achievements. There are 43 offline and three online (GamerNet Tourist, Hold my bag as I post my clip, and Online Participation).

Also, I do not believe the Shark Attack (equip a Hammerhead Prototype Club) achievement is glitched. It will unlock despite purchasing sponsorships with Microsoft points. Just remember to equip the clubs once you have unlocked them, whether tournament play or Microsoft point purchase.

I believe your reference to a "glitched" achievement might actually be referring to Pin Collector. There are 44 pins required to unlock this achievement. One pin in particular (Hammerhead pin) requires that you unlock all of the Hammerhead clubs (by acquiring level 4 sponsorships) during tournament play. If you purchase level 4 sponsorships with Microsoft points, the pin will not unlock. It is buggy (as you put it), but it does unlock with tournament play, therefore, I do not believe it is glitched.

Just adding my two cents to the machine. Good luck with the guide.

There are a couple of "missable" achievements along with the one you have already stated. Winning the masters 7 times ("Masters Legend") is also missable due to the fact that there is only 8 seasons in tournament mode. Also it is possible to miss the "Give me the Goodies!" achievement if you decide against competing in any sponsor challenges.

You can also miss "Sponsorship is Calling", "Ping Pitchman", "Ad Wizard" and "Commercial Icon" if you fail to achieve level 4 with the corresponding sponsors and then play in a major.

Good luck with the guide though!

I think you need to change the minimum number of playthroughs from 1 to about 7 or 8... because the 281 weeks takes 7 or 8 playthroughs depending on how fast you get #1 as well as you have to win the masters 7 times also 7 playthroughs... Just an FYI...

Really don't think you got to get #1 in the first year to get the 281 weeks achievement... I mean if you got it at the end of your 2nd year that'd leave 6 years which is 52x6=312 weeks so I think as long as you get it before your 2nd season ends you should be fine.

Last suggestion to make a great guide greater. You may want to go through and underline and change the color of any links you put in to make them stand out.

I tried to change the colour but I think the website itself blocks it. I tried making links blue, and underlined but it stopped me. In the end I had to make them bold.

Does anyone know how to request a sticky too?

Two foods(?) for thought:

* I got "History is Yours" the second I started the 2005 Masters. I've yet to complete the tourney itself.
* For President's Cup, I set it to four singles matches (and turned off every other type of match), and won the Cup. Bam, chievo unlocked.

In another update, there are a total of 9 full seasons. Just completed the 281 weeks achievement and then just skipped completely to the end to check.

Any idea why I have 0 wins online in stats even though I've won a fair few 3-hole mini-games?

I think you can get away with playing 1 every tournaments after season 2 or so. I have anyway. About to get the 281 weeks ach then the 7 Masters one later.

I would also suggest to forget about trying for some of the later Masters Moments until you have amazing stats. I wasted so much time trying to do the Gene Sarazen one without an Iron shot.

Nice guide. : ) In the beginning of your roadmap you say to play a live tournament for the last online achievement. This isn't entirely accurate as you need to play 10 and win 10 times online for pins towards your pin achievement.

Shilbo I see you say to wait to do the master moments. I mastered all the master moments right after I finished Q-School. So it is possible to do right away.

I didn't say it wasn't possible but it is far easier when you have the ability to drive an iron to the green. Show off!! :)

By the way, all I need is 20 more aces and 10 online wins. Tips?

For the aces you can make a custom course of your favourite Par 3 Hole, I think this is done in Practice Round mode. However after obtaining 25 Holes-in-one, you'll still need to get one within a tournament in the Road to the Masters mode. Otherwise it won't unlock the pins for 10/25 Aces.

For the 10 online wins, just make sure its a ranked online match. The 3-hole mini course is ideal to complete as it is very quick to do.

I haven't worked out how to make a course of the same hole and can't find practice round - you sure that wasn't Tiger 11 or have I missed something glaringly obvious?

The smiley face was put there for a reason. You might be good. I'm considering the fact that others are not so ace as you. And, I would say the challanges are not too difficult but the Sarazen one is if you don't use an Iron.

I'm guessing it's because EA had so much trouble trying to get Augusta in the game that it could have been in the contract that the course couldn't be edited.

Nice guide!

For the record though, the "Who's your Caddie?" achievement CAN be missed. I gave my friend the controller for the prologue, he got bored and skipped it. I can't find any option to do the prologue again, so it might have to be a delete-the-save job if I want to get that achievement.

Thanks for everything else. Keep up the good work!

Edit: More research has found that if you create a new character and start a new career, you get the option to do the prologue again. Hope this helps!

Great guide! Just a tip you may want to include for the "Flowering Crab Apple in 1!" secret achievement, instead of going to course mastery in Road to the Masters, you can simply go to quick play, select only hole 4 of the Augusta National, and select four players. That way you get 4 attempts at the hole under the same condition. Found this method quicker than the one mentioned in the guide, and was able to sink it on my second attempt. thanks to sleeper cell 01

this is an easy achievement and requires XBL gold subscription. Simply go to Quickplay - XBlive - Live Tournaments and play in one of the competitions on there. Submit your score at the end and this achievement will unlock.

Excellent advice for the Flowering Crab Apple achievement. On my 4th try I sunk it with Justin Rose, I didn't even have to spin it. After 3 previous attempts with the exact same conditions I knew exactly where to land it and it just rolled right in.

Is this confirmed? Whenever I get aces in practice mode, it doesn't add to my career stats. I have 8 aces so far just from playing RTTM and online... do I just grind it out, or does this method really work? Can you use mulligans?

Thx!

Mulligans won't work. You can use custom course to get 24 aces but it won't unlock if you 25th ace is on a custom course.

When can I start skipping sponsored events, when all clubs are unlocked? And is there any need to continue sponsor events when clubs are unlocked?

Captain and 7
05-30-2011, 12:01 PM
No, when all items in the pro shop are unlocked. Sponsor events unlock everything from apparel to equipment, so just unlocking all the clubs won't complete everything. I read that it's about 50-55 sponsor events to unlock everything.

Captain and 7
05-31-2011, 02:39 PM
None really. By the time you get to 55+ sponsor events you won't need the points either for maxing out your stats. I'm at 50 sponsor events now and have over 500k points and unlocked the prototype equipment. I have to do a few Oackley and Adidas events to unlock the prototype outfits.

'At this time I unlocked I got this 15g for landing within 100 yards of the flagstick and ignoring the caddie.'

Should be within 1 yard of the flagstick from 100 yards out.

Also, for the 'Great Suggestion' achievement, it doesn't have to be in Road to the Masters like you said, I did it in Quick Play.

I'm not sure what it will take, but someone should make this a sticky and/or post it to the "achievement guide" where it says "Show / Hide Guide Roadmap."

The only thing to keep an eye on when skipping sponsor events is the Ping Objective for completing 5 of them. Aside from that, you'll just want to watch who the sponsor is and know what items you still need to unlock in the pro shop. Aside from that, it's okay to skip them.

07-05-2011, 06:27 PM
one of the sponsor challenges is to reach the green with 1 shot on a par 4, which is the easiest course to do this as i keep coming up short of the green.

EDIT: did it by using a par 3 and aiming to the right of the green onto the fringe, took a few tries though.

07-08-2011, 04:36 PM
currently stuck on the sponsor challenge u do after u have played the us masters tournament, it shows u have to get the ball within 2 feet of the hole by putting and it shows the circle around the hole, trouble is, is that my putting circle which is red i have tried all angles to get it near the hole and i am getting nowhere, it either goes way too far or too short even if the preview putt shows it to be right into the hole and i match the power and get the putt line correct it still gets nowhere near the objective.

hate these stupid challenges.

the challenge is on the texas alamo classic.

EDIT: did it by changing the shot to a SW pitching shot.

Go to your bag, make sure all the clubs are Nike clubs.
Putter
Irons
Wedges
Woods
Driver

Then play in the Masters. It doesn't matter if you use every single club. You just need to make sure all the clubs in your bag are Nike.

This might be a good thing to add into the guide, as it's helped me and my friend out.

For the pins "Play and Win 10 games online" we've played each other. Now I know when you invite your friends, it's unranked, but there's a workaround.

We just do a ranked custom search, and have the criteria to be very specific and obscure. All we do is match said criteria and both press search at the same time. We've found each other every time!

We set it to max of 2 players, and play the round as normal, but one of us gifts it to the other one on the last hole if necessary. I can confirm that this has worked as both he and I have both pins.

So if you've got friends who play, or find some traders, use this method if you're getting smashed online! Hope this helps.

u can only do that before the stat of a season, if u are already playing the season then wait until the end after the fed ex cup and when the next season starts it shows the option to select the amount of rounds.

once selected it can only be changed after the season ends.

u can select the number of rounds at the start of each seaon.



now my question, i only need the 2 achievements - broken record, and masters legend.

can i skip doing the training? does it affect staying at number 1 or even winning the masters? i would like to go past the training but after ding 5 seasons i don't want to wreck it by skipping the training if im not supposed to, im just thinking that the training is now only for XP and i have bought everything i need.

daneel1954
08-25-2011, 04:03 PM
I've been skipping the training since I got enough XP and no effect on #1. To OP: Tournament rounds are easy (first round) to Tour diff (forth round) and changing to 3 (or 1) lops them off from the easy side. Having easy rounds lets you accumulate score for the possible brutal last round. (And makes an expensive game last longer!)

Great guide!!!! ;)

However, there is a missable achievement you may not be aware of. 'Earned My Card' can be missed if you fail to finish in the Top 25 of the Q-School as i found out. You end up back on the Nationwide Tour but only need to win 1 tournament from then on to get on the PGA Tour. It seems you only get 1 shot at the Q-School.

Wasn't too much of a problem as i created a new player in a new save game slot, quickly won the first 3 tournaments on easy level then made sure i finished in top 25 for the achievement. I then went back to my previous saved game.

Been playing road to the masters, didn't want to download (pay) for extra course but ended up having to skip the masters and then qualified in the next round but culdn't play masters. If I complete the rest of the tournaments do you think I will get another crack at the masters or do I have to restart from scratch?
