On the Course
You have complete control over shaping all your shots with the swing system in
Tiger Woods PGA TOUR ® 14. Move the left stick V to determine your backswing, and then
move the left stick C to follow through and complete your swing. Follow the swing arc to know
when to start your follow through. The speed of your movement, your aim, and the length of
backswing determines the outcome of your shot. You can also designate swing controls to the
right stick under Gameplay Settings if that’s more comfortable; this automatically sets the
Strike Meter to the left stick.
At higher difficulty levels, you must execute draws and fades by swinging your club diagonally
(left stick U, Y or left stick O, I). The results are more sensitive to mishits.
Before you swing, notice the Swing Plane is displayed in the lower left hand corner. This
Swing Plane is the path you should follow with the swing stick for your backswing and follow
through. If it displays at an angle, then you should swing diagonally. If you are off plane, the
club head arc will not align with the swing arc and the controller will vibrate. When you are off
plane, you will mishit the ball and result in an undesirable shot.
Swing Speed
Play close attention to the pace of your swing. Adjust the speed of both the backswing and follow
through to perfect the timing of your swing. You can extend your backswing and speed up the
forward swing to give an extra power boost. Look to the Swing Feedback Heads Up Display (HUD)
in the lower-left corner of the screen after your swing for an analysis of your backswing and
follow through.
Pre-SWING Stance
Adjust your stance to create unique and dynamic shots. Move the right stick Z/X to open your
stance and add fade right or draw left for right-handed golfers and fade left or draw right for
left-handed golfers. Move the right stick C/V to move the ball forward or backward in your
stance, which alters the height of the ball’s trajectory.
Strike Meter
Utilize the Strike Meter to dig the ball out of bunkers or to pick the ball cleanly when it’s in the
rough. Fat or thin hits are not favorable and affect the shot power and ball trajectory. You can
modify where the clubface strikes the ball with the right stick to gain greater control over the
height of your shot or to move your club left/right on the ball. New this year, you also need to
adjust left or right on the Strike Meter to account for sidehill lies. Alter your contact to suit the
current circumstances. Hit under the ball to pop it up high, or hit near the top of the ball for a
low shot.
After you have lined up the putt with the directional buttons, move left stick V to draw back the
putter and move left stick C to follow through. Follow the swing meter along the ground to know
when to start your follow through. The speed of your movement, your aim, and the length of
backswing determine the outcome of your putt.
For extra help, press the Q button to enable the putt preview feature. It displays the path of the
ball based on your current setup.

Tiger Woods PGA TOUR ® 14 includes PlayStation®Move motion controller support throughout the
entire gameplay experience. To use the PlayStation®Move motion controller, choose the controller
number that matches your PlayStation®Move motion controller at the control select screen, which
appears before you enter an event. When using the PlayStation®Move motion controller, follow the
on screen guides to navigate menus, zoom to a target, address the ball, and swing.
Zoom to Target
Press the Move button to zoom in on your target. To adjust your target, press the T button and
move the motion controller. The type of club you have selected affects your target, as well. To
switch your club, press the S button or the A button.
Before you hit a shot, you have to get lined up properly. While holding the T button, adjust your
aim with the PlayStation®Move motion controller. When you are satisfied, press the S button.
Address the Ball
Point the PlayStation®Move motion controller down and hold the T button to address the ball.
To swing, hold the PlayStation®Move motion controller in your hands like a golf club with the
sphere pointing down. While continuing to hold the T button from the address, take a normal
backswing and follow-through like you would in real life.
Every shot in golf can be created by altering your aim and shot setup. Your shot setup is controlled
by a combination of button presses on the motion controller. To open your stance for a fade,
press the T button and the S button. To close your stance for a draw, press the T button and the
A button. To move the ball forward in your stance, press the T button and the F button. To move
the ball back in your stance, press the T button and the D button.
Ask a PGA Pro
While setting up a shot in Practice Mode, press the D button to access PGA Pro Tips. PGA Pro Tips
give you recommendations on which golf club to use, your ideal stance, and more for your current
shot. As you make adjustments, the Pro Tips turn bold to show that your shot aligns with their suggestions.

you’ve finished an event, you can move to the next one.
Origin Account (EA)
Before you step foot on the course, select SETTINGS from the main menu, and then GAMEPLAY
SETTINGS to adjust the Difficulty Level. You can toggle the Swing Stick to swing with the right
stick or the left stick; the opposite stick is then used to control the Strike Meter. You can also

Difficulty Levels
Importing XP
There are five Difficulty Levels: Amateur, Pro, Tour Pro, Tournament, and Simulation. Each
Difficulty Level gives you a preset combination of the Swing Difficulty, Swing Meter, Ball Spin,
Putt Preview, Green Grid, Strike Meter, Zoom to Aim, Wind Display, and Shot Shaping settings.
The higher your difficulty, the more challenging it is to score under par. Adjusting the difficulty
also modifies the Status Points and Experience Points (XP) multiplier. The more difficult the
settings, the more you will earn.
Import a golfer profile from Tiger Woods PGA TOUR ® 13 to gain Experience Points (XP) that can
be assigned to your new golfer. The amount of XP you gain is related to how much XP you earned
with your imported golfer in the previous title.
Simulation Difficulty
The new Simulation Difficulty gives experienced players an immersive challenge. Simulation
Difficulty sets Swing Difficulty to expert and turns off the Swing Meter, Green Grid, and Zoom to
Aim. By eliminating these particular HUD features, Simulation Difficulty focuses your attention on
the green for the most realistic golfing experience possible. You are also required to perform fade
and draw shots off the tee when swing difficulty is set to Simulation.
Presentation Settings
Presentation Settings give you more control over how you view the green and the way the game
is presented. Here, you can adjust Aiming Style, Ball Flight Camera (New Broadcast Cameras),
Switch to Spin, First-Person Camera (when playing with the PlayStation®Move motion controller),
Ball Flight Trail, Putting Trail, Animations, Auto-Replay, Flag Indicator, Speed Play, and Metric.
These settings let you play a speedy match with few animations or a more cinematic game that

to your golfer’s swing by selecting the swing Type, Shape, Trajectory, and Handedness.
These settings allow you to customize your play style for optimal control. If you favor accuracy
over distance, you might set your swing type to Control for a more forgiving Mishit Window. If
you prefer to hit hard, a Power swing type and a Trajectory set to High helps your ball go the
distance—though keep in mind that the wind affects the ball more when your ball is soaring
higher in the air. Find the right balance for your golfer, based on your preferred play style.
