  • 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.

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.
