52. Hitting the Wall
I have been working on moving up in the Live Tournaments and I seem to have really hit the wall unless I want to invest a ton of time. I've been doing 2-3 dailys and 2 tiers every day for weeks now... Plus, both Play the pro's (another 8 rounds a week) and at least 2 of the weeklys (yet another 8 rounds). Thats a fuck load of golf. I'm up in the 170's for overall, which is not bad but at the rate I'm going, I am just maintaining my rank. To keep upward movement, I would have to up my play to include all daily's, every day (another 2-4 rounds per day) and also do all of the weekly's (another 3 tournaments or 12 more rounds a week).

I just can't do it. Especially with the number of people "cheating" in the game. I put that in quotes because my brother and I disagree on if they are cheating or not. Seems you can get a modded controller so you can turn of all left to right movement on the swing stick, giving you a perfect straight hit every time. Never mess up a shot, must be nice. I consider it cheating when used in ranked play.

I got far enough through single player to get the hammerhead prototype equipment and max out my character, which was nice. I've also figured out how to use overdrive to add extra power to my shots... That was very nice as it allowed me to get that extra yardage I needed to have a chance at eagle on those wicked long par 5's and short par 4's. The instructions are a bit off on how to use it. They tell you to tap "X" on your drive... What they do not tell you is that you have to start tapping just as you start your swing or it does not work.

Anyway... I'll be cutting back to just a few rounds a week and maybe one or two weeklys and just do the hardest ones to maximize money intake and see if I can hold where I am. I wonder if they ever re-set the rankings? Anyone know if they did that on older versions?
