In addition to the series’ tried-and-trusted analogue swing mechanic, PGA Tour 2K23 will incorporate a triple-click system – albeit with a twist. Casual golf fans will be familiar with the format from more arcade instalments like Everybody’s Golf, but while you’ll be pushing the X button to determine power, swing path, and club face angle – it’ll work a little differently to other games.
“You’ll see a circular power meter displayed as you take your stance, rather than a horizontal bar,” a Clubhouse Report explains. “Regardless of whether you’re hitting a normal iron shot, pitching, or chipping, the meter shape won’t change.”
The blog post continues: “To start your shot, hold down the button to the desired power and time your release as it nears the power circle; exceeding the recommended range will result in an overpowered shot or vice versa. After you release, a green dot will start moving counter-clockwise at the bottom of the circle, quickly tap the button at the top of the circle to determine your swing path. Tapping the button a second time as it reaches the bottom hash mark will determine an open or closed club face.”
So the system’s a little different to the horizontal meter you may have seen in the past. Don’t worry if you’re a casual player, though – there will be difficulty settings available, although lowering it will affect your swing speed when using triple-click. “Experiment with the analogue stick and three-click swings to find which works best for you in PGA Tour 2K23,” the blog post concludes.
It's kind of difficult to picture in my head off of words alone. Too bad they haven't released any footage of it in action. Hopefully soon as I want to at least try this style of play.
Good old Tiger Woods, man. Such a legend.
HOW DARE THEY make me pay $120USD for the Sunday Tiger outfit....*****.
Doesn't really matter who's on the cover. These games have gone stale over the years. Kinda like Madden with very little changes from one to the next.
@SmoothlyRough 2K21 didn't grab me as much as I'd hoped, but I might give this one a whirl — since the '04-06 heydey (imho anyway) of Tiger Woods, the only golf game I've really taken to has been Everybody's Golf.
Funny how Mario Golf Super Rush, a game in a series derived from 3-click golfing, didn't have the option for it... and PGA Tour 2K23 has it. I guess 2K does what Nintendon't lol
