I did it on TPC Boston, on the red tees, with no wind, and all greens and fairways set to very soft, and green speeds set to slow. Actually scored -4 for my round.

Alot of the holes are very short on red tees meaning you get alot of eagle putts so should be able to at least 3 putt for par.

 

Also it is worth changing your clubs to the beginner ones to give you a more forgiveness and a bigger swing plane.

 

Thanks

How are you selecting thise options? I assume in difficulty on settings. I don't see anything to change the wind and whenever i change any thing it changes it from legend to custom (i also don't see how to change these prior to round, it always starts on easy and i have to change via pausing)  and how on earth do you putt with no grid 😂

I am also having a really hard time with this trophy, I have followed the only 'guide' there is for this and I still cannot do it haha! I either hit the ball too fast or slow and then if I hit it slow a number of times and try to anticipate that and aim further right I end up hitting it fast and it just goes even further to the right 😂 

 

The struggle goes on, I will keep trying to find an easier way or hopefully someone will come up with a better way soon!

Its the putting for me. I dont understand how you're supposed to have a clue where the ball is gonna do. It's a literal guess. Not fun at all

I found it easiest on Royal Ethalwind (Red Pins/no wind). Greens were pretty flat in comparison to others which made putting easier. I’m not very good but managed to break even

I agree, not fun at all. It is also frustrating when you have to start again and it takes so long because the game is constantly freezing and loading times are awfully slow. Does anyone else find this ?

I'm wondering if you can have a 2nd player as a guest, so on their shot you can see the green grid, whilst your 1st player stays on legend difficulty. Would help a bit

The easiest way I found is to just hit the ball the way it is set up for you automatically. Most times it will still finish close to the hole, making an easier par putt. If you want to have a better idea of green elevation, when putting press r3 to change camera angle t the lowest one so you can read green a bit better

Yo can find it in the course set up of the play now settings.

finally I can say I now have this trophy!!! only took 5 straight hours just now 😂 

 

The best advice I can give is to play on a course someone mentioned earlier in the thread called Royal Ethalwind with no wind and on the re tees however I changed the fairway firmness to very firm, the green firmness to firm and the green speed to moderate. 

 

Good luck!

What are the best clubs to use? 
 

And seriously How do you hit it straight? Lol. I slice most shots. I have no idea how people go straight up and down with the analogue stick.

I just got the trophy. I struggled with the courses mentioned, so I tried TPC Louisiana and went round in 66 (-6). It's by far the easiest course in my opinion. It's only 5,127 yards from the red tees and most of the par 4s are driveable, and there isn't much water.

I’ve just got the trophy too. Thanks for the course suggestion. TPC Louisiana is the easiest course by far. I finished -3 and a few of the par 4’s you can reach the green from the tee. And all of the par 5’s are short too which means you can reach the green usually in 2.

Finally figured how to hit decent shots but the putting is stupid. Anywhere off perfect and the putts just skew to the side

I just don’t understand how you are suppose to know where to aim. Yes it’s Legend and yes it’s as realistic as possible. But even the real life golfers can get right down on the shot And look at the green. There isn’t even an option for that in this game. I would just like to view the green close up to see the slopes.

I mean you can use the approach camera which helps a bit and you can get low down. But still its basically guess work. I've been taking a ghost in and having the green grid on their turn but my player on legend.. Im not sure if it will work but I have to try

Pick the Beginner clubs. You sacrifice distance, but your shots will be more precise. Bad swings will also be forgiven (slightly).

Ok this should help people. You can use a ghost to read greens as long as your character is on legend

That’s going to be super helpful, thank you!

This guy is the GOAT. I tried several rounds at TPC Boston and TPC Louisiana and the closest I got was +2. Did one round on Royal Ethalwind and got -1. Very easy greens.
