Here is my take on the putting issue. I played probably 50 hours solo before playing with a friend. The putting was a little weird at first with the different distance putters and all, but I mastered it after a while and had no problems with it. Then I tried to play with a friend. Suddenly, the putting was absolutely ridiculous. If I had a putt that the aiming marker showed the hole at 50% and uphill just an inch or two, even a 100% putt wouldn't make it to the hole. What the heck? Downhill putts were the same way. In solo play, if I had a downhill putt that showed let's say 70% at the hole, and downhill 7 inches, I'd better be careful not to go past 50% or it would race past the hole. When playing my buddy, that same put would require 80% power to get there. It became completely unplayable. We tried different modes and settings, but they all were the same. Then I went back to my PGA tour calendar and started the next tournament and the putting was back to normal. It makes no sense whatsoever, but the conclusion is there is something seriously wrong with this game and it needs to be fixed. Part of the reason I got this game was to play with my friends, and we simply can't do it with putting like this. I'll continue my personal season and enjoy playing through all that, but if some fix isn't offered, I'm going to be overall very disappointed.
