He's going the distance

Hit a drive over 400 yards  

There are multiple options here, but the main goal is to pick a strong golfer like Bubba Watson or Tiger and select Gale Force winds from the options menu. The recommendation below is what i personally used. Took quite a few tries though to get the wind in the right direction. Went about 450ish with the driver and power pins attached.

Note: Insure you have mulligans turned off as this voids the achievement.

Additional info: Augusta, 2nd hole. Use Tiger, Gale Force winds, fast course, and the boost pins for Tiger and Driver. First time I tried it the wind was across and opposite the direction of the dogleg and I still got 380; second try the wind was almost straight with me and I got 410. Of course use the forward spin for extra roll.

I think you need to jack up wind setting and hope a hole has your wind to your back. I'm 75 driving and gold driver pin and silver power and I got 390 with 26 mph wind behind me.

Golfer: Bubba Watson
Course: Torrey Pines (Custom Hole Select:13)
Tees: White
Wind: Gale Force

Use this set up and restart until the wind is at your back. The wind will carry the ball down a huge hill getting the 400 yards easily.

Anyone else having a problem with this one? I have the collectors edition, and I'm having trouble with this one and the 10 perfect swings one. I have driven the ball over 400 a few times (with and without pins activated, diff courses and holes, mulligans abled and disabled)... Not sure if it's glitchy and will maybe randomly pop one of these times... Frustrating though. Also read the metronome (10 perfect swings on tour diff) can be glitchy and take more than 10 perfect swings (had about 15 on two occasions in the practice facility at Augusta (read it could be done here, so I figured it's the best spot to get it)... Thanks for any help. Also if anyone wants to get toddler achievement (any of the three, message me or post tags)

Still can't get this one to pop. Have tried a ton of diff ways... Issue isn't yardage, just don't know why it won't pop. Tried with profile golfer / bubba / Dustin ... All well over 400... Still nothing. Metronome cheev finally popped (seemingly random, around what I thought was 25th perfect/perfect swing)... Any suggestions / or help would be appreciated. Also didn't get Ricky fowler toddler cheevo to pop, played 18 @ st Andrews play now, just me.

@ #10: Yeah it took me like 8 tries, sucks.

@ #11: This is the worst glitching Tiger Woods to date IMO. Keep tryin'
