Boost your golfer’s Attributes to the max (12) without a Max Stats Costume   
This is a very easy and quick process to complete. Start Tiger Challenge mode and progress through that slowly. Once you get to the 5th or 6th tier exit out. Go to My Golfer then Pro Shop and buy any 4 items that have a 2.0 Boost in them in any capacity (Power,Accuracy,Short Game and Putting). Equip those items and go to Traditional Mode and Stroke play. When in the Course Select Screen, Hit and Create a Course. Select Pebble Beach and Hole # 2 on all 18 holes and Save it. Select that Course and play an 18 Hole round. Once you're ready to tee off, Boom your Tee shot as far on the fairway as possible. Make sure every tee shot is on the fairway, this will boost your Power Rating. Next, Chip your 2nd shot just short of the green. Then chip your 3rd shot as CLOSE to the pin as possible. This is the most crucial element in helping you get a High Short Game rating because this is the most annoying rating to get maximized. Last but not least putt that 4 or 5 footer into the hole. Repeat this in all 18 holes and you should have a full 12 rating in about 3-4 rounds of play.

Power - Power increases by your Average Driving Distance off the Tee, Get familiar with the Boost during your back swing by quickly pressing . The Bigger the Drive the Higher you rank up.
Accuracy = Accuracy increases as you make more and moree Green in Regulation shots. These are done by getting your ball onto the Green in Regulation. You will need to get the ball for example onto the green in 1 shot on a Par 3 Hole, 2 shots on a Par 4 and 3 shots on a Par 5 Hole.
Short Game - Increased as you improve your average distance within 100 yards. Avoid Sand Traps and Bunkers!
Putting - Increased by decreasing your Average Putt Per Green. You ideally want to only have one putt her hole.Every 2 inches uphill youwant to putt one foot past the hole. Every inch downhill you want to putt 2 feet past the hole.
