I'll be out of the country for a couple weeks, so please keep the heat on Joz... He's still making this look WAY too easy... :)
Have a good trip. I am out basically every week in and out, but have the series S to catch up with the games. The only way one may get a stiff at the Major is if John sets up a different setting just for him and make him swing on Ultimate or the level above Masters if there’s one. :lol:

I decided to try the TGCT for the new season. Made the Challenge Circuit-B tour. I think all the tours there use master difficulty. Shot -28 for my first tournament. Sitting in 52nd place. Crazy how good some of these guys are.

Are any of you guys playing TGCT?

I was out of commission since last Thursday with a bad chest cold, and didn't learn that there was another update to PGA TOUR 2K23 this past week until last night. I can't see that it's made any difference in the things that I find wrong with the game... namely the laggy, inconsistent swing. They added high quality versions of Torrey Pines North and South among other things, but nothing that really stands out in my mind.

I bought the PC version when it went on sale for $35 last week. There's a load of graphics options in the PC version, and I was able to tweak a 1080p/60 FPS setting (with sharpening and object detail enhancements) that looks really good. Most importantly, it gives me solid and reliable response and feedback at the solid frame rate and feels like the Series X ought to feel. I wish that HB Studios would just swallow their pride and offer a 1080p/60 FPS option. I love the feel of the game on the PC, but I can already see that playing it is going to screw up Series X play even more. The swings require difference pace, but at least one of them is consistent.

I wonder since there is a difference from PC to series X in the swing if there is one from Xbox One to Series X? I am probably going to upgrade to the X soon and know I can play the game I have now on it but will there be a swing tempo difference? By the way 35 bucks for PC version is pretty good deal.

I am but I'm in the last flight. USually shoot under for the first 2 rounds and then blow up after the cut.

This is what I've been saying for a while. The swing is so much more fluid and responsive with the PC version I wonder why they can't get that on the Xbox version?

I would like to try the PC or PS version just to see the difference. I'm on the Series X and really don't have any issues. But too many people have mentioned a difference here and other places for there not to be an issue.

I am on the Xbox One and have no issues and I wonder if internet speed could be an issue. I have the fastest Spectrum has to offer and pay for it and no issues at all.

There was for me on PGA TOUR 2K21 at least. When they added the 60 Hz vsync option for the XBox version of that game. I purposely installed it on an original XBox One I had laying around and compared it to how it felt on my XBox One X. It was a huge difference. I couldn't adapt to the difference in the feel of the swings in just one round. It was even more profound than the difference between the PC version of 2K23 at 1080p/60 FPS and the Series X version at whatever the Series X is supposed to be in what they call "Performance" mode. I can tell you from what I feel in the PC version at a locked and provable 60 FPS, that the Series X version isn't maintaining 60 FPS much of the time.

It takes me three rounds to fully adapt to the more fluid and responsive feel of the PC version at 60 FPS. Once I do and go back to the Series X version, I find that I'm slicing everything badly. I can't make my senses realize that I have to push the stick faster to overcome the lagging animation response.

I played 3 rounds in an hour and a half yesterday in Career mode on the PC version. In the third round I had fully adapted to the smoother PC tempo and shot a 58 at Sawgrass. I had shot a 70 in the first round of the same tournament. I played my DSP Society round right after that on my Series X and double bogeyed two of the first three holes after wildly missing the fairways off the tees, and then leaving a 108 yard sand wedge approach 42 yards to the right of the pint one one of those holes. I wound up holing out from the fairway for an eagle on 18 to finish even par for the round :?

I'm hearing the internet speed and consistency has a lot to do with it. I can tell you that mine is pretty spotty. I have a local ISP called Comporium. I bought their highest speed cable mode package they offer called "Elite Internet". It supposedly yields 750Mbps x 30Mbps, although I don't ever see that. They offer a Fiber Optic package in certain areas (mine not being in the selected area) that delivers 1Gbps x 50Mbps, for $10 more a month.

Haven't even tried this, but the move from Cable to Fiber for me was insanely good. I never saw the speeds I was supposed to be getting with my cable service, but my Fiber connection frequently EXCEEDS what I'm supposed to get.

***EDIT***...and I missed the fact that it's NOT in your area. I thought you were thinking of switching. My bad.

I'm actually using the 5G Home internet from Verizon. Advertised 85-300 Mbps with upload about 10. I normally get 120-150. There are three of us here that have no issue streaming at the same time.

I have 1 GB Fiber connection but now that you say that my 1X is connecting wirelessly and my PC is using an ethernet cable. With that said I really think it has to do with some kind of hardware combination on the 1X.

Thanks for your input on this Terry! You've just convinced me to jump on fiber optic (they call the service "Zipstream") once it's available in my area. I can look out my back door and see the roof lines of apartments that are one block behind me, who do have fiber optic. That's how close it is to me now. I'll be shocked if we don't have it within three months. So again, Comporium Communications owes you a commission for selling me on this service!

Man, if I earned commission on all the stuff I've "sold" to guys over the years...I'd be a rich man :lol:

Honestly, the instant I ditched cable everything got so much smoother. And I had never even HEARD of speeds like this in the residential sector:

I've had a grand total of one problem in the months since, and it was when they had some sort of brief maintenance...right in the middle of an iRacing league race where I was walking away from the field :evil:

If it's truly an internet speed issue, Fiber has been absolutely amazing for me for everything....stream 4K movies to 4 devices in the house, download a game on Steam, play something online, and still have bandwidth to spare :lol:

Wow I have 1 GB Fiber and the best I get on a good day is 980. I've never seen speeds like that, what do you pay for 3GB?

It's only 2GB, which is what amazes me. I honestly don't remember how much it is, I think it was $125. Did the sign-up and auto-pay and forgot.

Speed kills. Literally both ways. Lucky for those of you with Fiber connections. I still play the game away from home when I stay at hotels averaging readings of 9.89 mbps and a latency that’s too embarrassing to mention while at home it’s much better of course.

What is wrong with that stupid profanity filter. First- Worst round with the putter in a long time. Second- Worst round with the flat stick in quite awhile. It's constant that pops up and no wonder nobody wants to comment in game.

Ain't is the truth... I was trying to complement someone last week for having a good round and holing out so many long putts, but it got deleted for profanity!? It doesn't even tell you what the offending word was so you can go back and edit it out... it just wipes out the whole message - terrible!

I need to discipline myself to just totally quit the game and start over from launch once I get a hesitant swing. I'm having enough time regulating my tempo, going back and forth between the XBox and PC version of the game, without having to deal with server performance issues.
