I'm weighing up what to do for season two of the PSGL Tour.

One idea, other than keeping it as it is, is to have Tour Pro's and Tour Am's (amateurs). Everyone plays in the same tourney's but there are separate tour leaderboards for each group.

So the one tourney leaderboard is slot into two at the end to work out the tour points. So there would be a Pro and an Am winner effectively.

Just thinking aloud.

Put me on the pro one so i can try to catch the big boys  :)

How are we finding the new update?

The handicap system is interesting and adds a different element to just playing a round on your own. But the leaderboards and a few other things seem a bit glitched.

Also the stroke index (which holes are classed as easiest and hardest) seems wrong.

Currently rocking a +9.2 handicap.

Actually the best thing about the update is the cool new sound it makes when you hit fairway woods.

Things i want most in the game...hybrids

I need to look into what the handicap's mean, but i need to play 5 more official course to get my handicap first!! I didn't realise i had played so few  lol  I must only take part in PSGL tourneys.

Everyone has to play 5 rounds post update to get one no matter how many you've played so far i think.

How it works.....basically (this might get long). With a handicap of plus 9 i have a shot added to my score on the 9 easiest holes on the course to calculate my "net" score. On the other 9 harder holes my actual score is also my net score.

So essentially, 9 under par is my "par score"

If Player X has a handicap of minus 9 they have a shot taken OFF their score on the hard holes to work out their net score so 9 over becomes their par.

It will make much more sense once you see it in action  ;)

Have a good night!

Ha, you're welcome.

I noticed yours was Plus 16 which is very very high. Guessing your tore it up on your 5 qualifing rounds/played easy courses?

Should level out as you play tougher courses.

Although a lot of people seem to be reporting serious bugs with it.

Interesting addition but a little bit puzzled they added this when there are so many other small improvements they could make.

I picked the hardest on the handicap list and i was one of the ones that played pinelakes too. Yes i was reading the forum and people are upset!!! wow yes there are other things they could do like how about adding different clubs so a person can set his distances and not be so much between clubs, add some hybrids so you can hold some of these lightening greens. maybe in a couple weeks after everybody has got there handicap established HF can set a side tournament using a handicap course to test the handicap system not counting for points to see what happens.

It's pretty poor ain't it, Xbox has been down as well.

One thing I have noticed rated to online at TGC this past month: my PS Plus ran out around mid December yet I am still able to create and take part in tournaments on TGC?? I wonder if because it is synchronised multiplayer and 'only' ghosts it doesn't come under Playstation's need to have Plus. Interesting though.

I don't know anything about synchronised multiplayer ( hell i had to spell it from you  :) ). but my ISKNGRIS has never had ps plus and i have played tgc since it came to ps4. maybe that's why.

Yeah, I see blue played and shot like -32. I think I had barely -15. Not my best showing for sure.

My 1st round was a nightmare in 12 to 15mph wind and that 5th green is way out of line for a golf course and that par 3 post stamp cost me 4 strokes in the wind, yes i'm crying like a baby  :20: but i will pull it together and put on my big boy pants and try to make up some strokes.
