Crikey! .... Had my first go of the fifth course you unlock (Silver Peaks) & the greens are a nightmare to putt on. I had birdie putts on all but two of the holes & never sank anything due to the ridiculous slopes. Was also fooled by the huge height differences between tee & fairway/green & went out-of-bounds twice for a miserable +4 round.

That'll teach me to boast how easy this game is.

Still trying for the 'perfect victory' of winning every challenge event, but some of them are right *****

Unlocked my first "expert" player. He has great power but you have to time the impact on the ball perfectly else it's going nowhere where you aimed it. Impressed myself getting -3 on the front nine of Silver Peaks. Also managed to finish 5th in an online tournament with 29 players, so got my 2nd "top 20%" finish. How many do you need to go up an online skill level?

Beat L.J. & completed Bronze on my 2nd attempt. Won it on the 9th despite being two-up after the first two holes. Proceeded to try & throw it away.

Just had a quick go of the unlocked Crown Links course. BLOODY 'ELL!! ... it looks innocent enough until you try playing it. Despite hitting every fairway, I still only scraped a +2 score. The greens are ridiculously small with mental slopes on them. I only managed to keep ONE of my approach shots on a green, for my one & only birdie. Getting under par on that course is going to require much hard work. It doesn't help that the two unlocked "expert" players so far, have rubbish stats. You can hit the ball for miles, but forget about having any control over where it lands.

I've never RtFM but is there anything other than levels of cuteness in which caddy you pick?

Nah, the caddies do nothing important. I just unlocked Eva who has a great pair of knockers though.

Now upto Gold & Level 11 on the single-player challenge mode.

It is getting incredibly hard to win tournaments now, with under-par scores required to win, which isn't easy, hitting off the long-tees on the latter courses.

Just got my first hole in one! Was a good feeling

Inching closer to completing every challenge, but damn are some of them hard...

No more concerns about the difficulty level being too easy I assume Tony?

I find Silver Peaks a really hard course to play and although I'm on Bronze now, I just can't beat that LJ fella! I've been 2 up a few times, but he always pegs me back. It's the course that beats me really.

Oh yes!!! LJ finally falls and my rank has gone up to silver. I nearly had a dozen heart-attacks, but it was worth it
