Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 is the final installment of the EA series featuring Tiger Woods after the 2 mega-brands parted company. This version has a wide selection of golfers, both old and new, and many courses including favorites from the previous games, such as the famous St Andrews and Augusta National, home of the Masters tournament.
The core of the gameplay still lies in career mode where you can create your own golfer and take them from an amateur through to golfing stardom. Country Clubs return from TW PGA Tour 13, along with some new features such as the Legends of the Masters mode, where you can relive famous victories and moments from the most iconic tournament in the golfing calendar. The usual online game modes are available including stroke play, match play and stableford.
Start off by making your created golfer as you'll use this for all career modes. You will need to create both a male and female character and get them to turn professional for a couple of achievements. It's worth saying here do not be tempted to spend any EA coins you earn to level up your golfer - that will come naturally with the amount of rounds you'll play if you're looking to get the full 1000. You will need the coins later for the "Pin Collector" achievement.
You will need to play through career mode at least 6 times to have won the record number of masters tournaments for the "Record Breaker" achievement. You'll also need to have scored a top ten finish in 37 tournaments. I would advise having all tournaments set to 1 round to speed this process up, although you will need to do one 4 day tournament, but settings can be manipulated to do this just once when required. You can skip any event for a course you don't own without losing ranking/Fed Ex cup points. You can skip other non-major tournaments too, however you'll need to compete in and win 18 tournaments in one season for one of the career goals.
You should join a country club early as you can. You'll need to be in a country club for the achievements "Frequent Flyer", "Tigerchat"and "No Sweat!"
Legends of the Majors will be where most players will require lots of retries, so start this early on to avoid frustration - your created golfer is rarely required and their stats will be temporarily boosted to match your opponent when required so you don't need to build them up before playing this mode. I would advise checking youtube for any events you get stuck on - most can be completed with a little perseverance but it may help to see how other people are setting their shots up to 'legend' each event.
Lastly you'll want to do the various quick tournament achievements, which nearly all require you to play with or against a legend, unlocked through the Legends mode. Take care with the settings when doing these as they have been reported as glitchy, but in my experience all will unlock with the correct set up.
There is only one truly multiplayer achievement which requires you to play a 4 player online match with all players playing as 'legend' characters. This can be done as soon as you start the game but more legendary characters are available by completing the Legends mode events. The country club related achievements require a live connection to the EA servers but are not played against other players.

There are a handful of miscellaneous achievements, most of which are easily gained by playing a single round or manipulating the game settings to play a few holes, so refer to the guide for any that haven't unlocked when career mode and the Legends of the Masters are tidied up.
In conclusion this is an easy if a little time consuming 875 with only the "Last Name Legend" (Skill based), "Record breaker" (Time consuming) and "Pin Collector" (Random/luck based) achievements being awkward.
