Coming Out of the Rough or Sand

In EA Sports Rory McIlroy PGA Tour it is inevitable that at some point you are going to misjudge a shot or send it flying a little too fast and find yourself out of bounds in the rough or sand. Knowing how to get yourself out of these situations can make a substantial difference to your score at the end of a round.

Coming Out of the Rough or Sand

On the easy setting of the game you do not need to worry about this as your club will automatically be chosen for you. All you need to do is aim for where you want the ball to go back on the course and swing. On the other settings however it is up to you to find the right club for the shot at hand.
If your ball is in the rough or sand you need to avoid wood clubs as these are designed for power on a smooth surface and will be useless in these situations. The clubs you need to use are your power and sand wedge, the one you use will depend on how close you are to the hole. You can also use a good iron providing the distance is right but otherwise you should stick with the smaller wedges. With a bit of practice you will instictively know which wedge you need to select and be able to get yourself back on the course.


How to get the Special Delivery Trophy

How to get the Special Delivery Trophy

To get this trophy you need to win the FedEx Cup. The FedEx Cup is a season long competition, whereby the winner is the person who racks up the most Fed Ex points during the year - not necessarily the winner of the last event. As a calender has not been included in the game the tournament schedule for the Pro Career mode is below. This will give you an idea as to where you are when attempting this trophy.
- Bioware Classic
- Arnold Palmer Invitational
- International Challenge
EA Sports Spring Invitational (Win for Invitation Only Trophy)
- Boston Championship
- The Players Championship
you.S. Open (Win for Open for Business Trophy)
- Mid Season Classic
The Open Championship (Win for Drinking from the Jug Trophy)
- Tiburon Championship
PGA Championship (Win for Wanamaking History Trophy)
- EA Charity Invitational
- Northeast Invitational - FedEx Playoff Event
- Deutsche Bank Championship - FedEx Playoff Event
- Orlando Classic - FedEx Playoff Event
Season Finale - FedEx Final (Win for Special Delivery Trophy)
Note: Before the 'Northeast Invitational' there is an event called the 'Pittsburgh Invitational'. The Pittsburgh Invitational is not part of the FedEx Cup.
To have a chance of winning the Fed Ex Cup you need to ensure that you have the most points leading into the tour championship (FedEx Final). Each tournament offers anywhere between 250-600 points towards your tally, depending on the event. It is not necessary to play in every event so if you have a decent lead and want to save time you can withdraw from events.
When you reach the FedEx Cup playoff events it is very important that you are careful when selecting to play or skip these events because each event nets up 2000 points for the winner and skipping could cost you the lead in the cup point.

Double the spin on the ball, or backspin onto targets normally unreachable.
Anchor

Pause
Stop the ball in mid-air to time shots and hit moving targets or avoid pesky obstacles.
Rocket
Provides a lift to the ball to hit unreachable targets.
Below Zero
Avoid bad lies by bouncing the ball off any terrain, including sand or water.

Useful Tips

Remember to Update your Clubs
Remember to frequently update your clubs in Career mode as you will be unlocking new clubs as you progress through the game and these will be better clubs than what you already have in the bag.
Practice Ball Spin
Make sure you practice the ball spin techniques so you are able to control the ball as it will significantly help you get it closer to the hole. To apply spin to your shot so it rolls in a desired direction when it touches down on the ground you must push the left stick in that direction while the ball is in the air.
Play 1 Round in Career Mode
You can gain a substantial lead on the leaderboard in Career mode if you play 1 round through the full 18 holes in every tournament that has a trophy affiliated with it.

EA Sports Rory McIlroy PGA Tour Tips

Choose the Right Swing Mechanic
If you play golf games you will be familiar with the 'Classic' three-click format EA Sports Rory McIlroy's PGA Tour uses. Press the button once to set a little marker into motion on a meter. Press the button a second time the marker reaches the small, white 'power target' box, and finally press the button a third time when the marker swings back to reach the 'accuracy target' box.
Classic is probably the easiest format on offer to get the hang of, the other two - Arcade and Tour are for skilled players who know their way around a golf course. Arcade offers more control while Tour gives you the most flexibiity, but it requires a lot of precision.
EA Sports Rory McIlroy PGA Tour Gameplay

Aiming
The most important part of this game is aiming your shots correctly. At the start of every shot you need to consider the factors that affect the shot.
These factors include:
- Wind
- Elevation of the target
- Lie of the ball
- The amount of roll out you think the ball will have after it lands
While the white aiming mark will show you where you are currently aimed, the blue aiming arc will show you where your ball will actually be going, taking into account all of those elements such as wind, lie and elevation.
Shot Shaping
Just like in the real world shot shaping is important because regardless of which swing mechanic you choose, it enables you to change the angle of your shot, which impacts how the ball behaves when it's in the air or on the ground.
If you make contact with the ball at a higher point you will give it more lift, minimizing the bounce and forward momentum when it reaches the ground. Striking the ball lower will minimize loft, reducing the air time but increasing the roll distance. If you hit the ball on the left or right you will change it's in-air arc which will enable you to sail the ball around obstacles, such as trees.
You shape your shot in EA Sports Rory McIlroy PGA Tour by moving the right stick to adjust a set of crosshairs on the ball icon in the bottom-right corner of the screen.
Boost Power and Apply Spin
If you are playing in Arcade or Tour mode you have two extra options when you strike the ball. If you tap X on your controller during your swing you will be able to boost the shot power. To apply spin to the shot so when the ball touches down on the ground it rolls in a desired direction you must push the left stick in that direction while the ball is in the air.
Pick your Own Shots
Don't rely on EA Sports Rory McIlroy PGA Tour club picking and aiming target as it does a bad job on both counts. The auto-aim does not apply any shot shaping and tends to be wrong, particularly when you are lining up an approach to the green.
You will probably have more success picking your own shot instead of depending on the game to help you. For example, you will be able to loft balls when you need to pitch a shot into the green and there is the possibility of earning XP for 'advanced' shots which is basically any shot you manually chart the direction of.
Abort the Shot
If for whatever reason you screw up your shot and the swing animation starts you can make your virtual golfer automatically abort the shot by simply letting go of/stop pressing everything. This will basically turn what was ..
