I fancy getting back into a Tiger Woods game.
The last one I have played since I see no need to buy this every year was 2010.

Which one would you suggest I buy? I noticed the 2012 had masters over the front cover which is good that it's in the game, but I don't want it to be the only thing.
2013 also features it by the looks of it??

It's not just about the career though, I remember another Tiger Woods game that had a few mini games, and this hexagon grid of small challenges if you didn't want a long gaming session.

So I'm looking for a decent career mode with plenty of other side options and mini games if there is one out there?

I have both 12 and 13 but only really play online so I can't help you that much but I can say that the career on 12 is all about the Road to the Masters and that is your goal, I haven't played career on 13 much but I believe it is a normal career mode just like previous versions

which console would it be on? I have it on PS3 and 13 still has Augusta National golf course on it. as for mini game I'm not sure, I don't think so but I will take a look next time I'm on for you

Actually wish I still had a TW game. I get what you say about not buying each year.

Only thing I dont like about TW online, is that I hate the things like bunny suits, spaceman suits etc. I love the game feels real, other than that nonsense.

It's on the 360 to answer that question.
As for online, I've never actually touched it. Maybe that will open more doors for me.

I remember trying a demo for a newer one but don't remember which one, the putting system was completely different to 2010 and a bit more difficult.

I guess I'll check out some more reviews see if I can decide this time.

the putting system has changed massively between 2012 and 2013 as well to be honest! 12 was fine for me but I find it really difficult to putt on 13

I'm sure it will just take some getting used to. I'd download the demos if they were available for both, but with a game like this I don't think you get the full feel for it on a demo.

By the way, how does everyone hold the joypad when playing this?
I once had a few friends round for an xbox night. We stuck Tiger Woods 10 on and a couple of people were laughing at me..
They hold it in both hands like any other game. I put the joypad next to me on the sofa and grab the LS with my whole hand.
I then get accused of cheating because I get an almost perfect straight shot

I hold it the same as I do on any other game!

maybe I should try your way though as I sometimes hit a few shots offline!

out of interest, what score would you aim for (based on your abilities) if say playing a round on easiest difficulty with Tiger Woods (or your player if he is better), just wondering how well you would do online

I just played a 4 round tournament and finished around 200th out of 650+, I normally aim for top 100 but had a bad first round due to first time I'd been on the game for ages

I won't tell you what score I got and what the winning score was as I don't want to give you any ideas when telling me your average score

It's been so long since I played I wouldn't know. If records are saved I could put the disk in next time I'm on xbox and take a look.

I'd go online for the laugh but it's been too long since I played and I doubt there's many active 2010 players now.

I've just put the game in while I wait for my MW3 maps to download.
I loaded up my player resume, it's my second profile so isn't my true average but there's enough to get an idea,
Scoring Average is 69.50 with a best round of 62. That's with my own golfer.
6 Eagles
100 Birdies
126 Pars

oh right, that isn't bad considering its only your profile golfer, if you played as Tiger on amateur online I think u'd do ok

anyway, I finished 266th out of 660 last week with a 4 round score of -72! the winning score was -109 (an average of about -27 per round!) for me that score is impossible but keep practicing and you never know!

I played an online one round tournament just now on the hardest difficulty with Ian Poulter and scored +29! (2 horrific holes of +9 & +8 so without them its 'only' +12) it was extremely difficult, my putting average was 1.8 per hole though which I was pretty pleased about, the wind was so fast and normally towards me that I found it impossible to get GIR on most holes

the lead was somehow -12

Yeah but I wonder if I held the joypad normally would my average be what it is lol.

I often think how on any game the people have the scores they have at the top of leaderboard!
I might give online a go if servers are still active, if not I'll decide which of the newer ones to get.

I would imagine that the online part it still highly active on 12....not sure about 10 though

maybe you should just wait until 14 comes out? 13 came out in March/April last year so it should only be a few months

EDIT: game out on 28 March

Features

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 will include Legends of the Majors mode, where players will be able to compete in notable tournaments from the 1930's through to the present day. Equipment physics (along with the outfits of players) will also change to simulate the conditions and differences of each era. LPGA events (such as the Kraft Nabisco Championship) will also be introduced to Career mode for the first time in series history, and all four Men's major golf championships will also appear as well. Country Clubs will now be able to house up to 100 members, and a customizable day/night cycle will also be included.
