    So how does a new guy get involved in this here shindig?

    Keep in mind I've never played the game and have zero clue, so speak slowly and use small words.

    Thanks

    Bro, it is HARD! I never knew the differences between Tour Pro and Pro (basically no spin, etc.) and it makes a world of difference.

    Do I need to create a golfer or do you use one of the real guys?

    I'd start by playing the standard Road to the Masters to build your character up. Make sure you are playing on Tour Pro difficulty as that is what we use on the TGA Tour. As you get better and start winning tourney's and such you can allocate your points to make your golfer better - the skill cap is set at 240 points (or an average of 60 across the 4 main categories.) As a point of reference, my golfer is something like

    75 pow|80 acc|25 con|60 putt

    Once you're comfortable with the game, all you have to do is start playing on the tour. Theres a thread stickied every week we're playing (we play every other week) with Tee Times. All you do is sign up for a tee time and show up to play with your Flight Captain. Its probably a good idea to always keep in touch with your FC on the forums and such so they know whats going on. Once you start showing up for your Tee Times, the rest is up to the FC. He will make sure the settings are all correct for the round you're playing and report your scores. Thats pretty much it.

    Any questions just holler

    Also as you go through the road to the masters, use custom shots instead of the shots the caddie recommends. I'm pretty sure here you have to do custom shots. At least I do...figuring out the right draw and wind and all that on your own is critical.

    Yes that's correct, good point Brian. On putting you're allowed to use the caddy reads but only because there's no way around it.
