|Congratulations for unlocking all trophies in Tiger Woods PGA TOUR® 13!|
As with every Platinum trophy, this one will pop once you unlock all the other trophies.
|Going Green with a Hybrid|
|Land on the green from over 175 yards away using a Hybrid|
This one is straight forward enough. The first thing you have to do is make sure there is a Hybrid in your bag. I switched out my 5 Wood for a 4H, or 4 Hybrid. To do this, go to:
My Golfer > In the Bag.
|Live from your couch|
|Play in a Live Tournament|
You will get this trophy as soon as you enter any of the available tournaments in the Online section of the menu. It will pop as soon as you enter, so you don’t have to actually play the whole round if you don’t want to.
|Tigers have FIR|
|Complete an 18 hole round with a 100 percent FIR. FIR = Fairway in Regulation|
This one is pretty easy once you set up your round properly. I got it in the very first round I played, along with That was GIRrrreat, From the Ladies Tees and Can You Give Me a Boost. I’d advise you to also try to get all of these in one go.
|That was GIRrrreat!|
|Complete an 18 hole round with a 100 percent GIR. GIR = Green in Regulation|
This one is pretty easy once you set up your round properly. I got it in the very first round I played, along with Tigers Have FIR, From the Ladies Tees and Can You Give Me a Boost. I’d advise you to also try to get all of these in one go.
|No Handouts Please|
|Actually get a hole in 1 in the 1982 First Hole in One event in Tiger Legacy Challenge||(9)|
This is the final Toddler Tiger challenge, and what you are looking for is a straight hole out. This is actually not too as hard to achieve as you may think. Here are a few tips:
|Shouting at Amen Corner|
|Complete Amen Corner (Augusta 11,12,13) with a birdie or better on each in a single round|
Amen Corner is the infamous set of three holes starting the back nine at Augusta National. A Par 4 followed by a Par 3, followed by a Par 5: all guarded by water hazards.
|It's a Start|
|Master 1 course|
You will get this trophy after you Master your first course.
|Now we're talking|
|Master 8 courses|
You will get this trophy after you Master your eight course.
|Like a Boss|
|Master 16 Courses||(1)|
Courses are mastered by completing mini-challenges on them while playing through the game. They involve hitting certain totals for Eagles, Birdies, Pars, GIR, FIR, etc… You should be able to make a large dent in the bulk of the challenges for the available courses by just playing through Legacy Challenges and the Career mode.
- Make sure you are online and connected to the EA Servers before trying to complete any challenges.
- Avoid all hazards. Always make an effort to stick to the fairway, and try to hit the greens in regulation. You will have quotas to fill.
- Try to birdie everything. You should be able to birdie at least 2 out of every 3 holes without much problem. Scores stack, so birdies add to the count for both birdies and pars. The same applies to eagles.
- Don’t worry about eagles. Have a go if and when you can. But you only need 5 per course. They will tend to come naturally. If you are having trouble getting these, switch to the Red Tees.
- Use the substitute course function in Career mode to buff the courses you have yet to clear while working towards the No.1 spot in the rankings. You should not be skipping any competitions until you have unlocked all the Career Ranking trophies.
- Concentrate on the 16 available Unlimited Play courses. You only need to master 16 courses, so don’t waste your time and coins on the dlc courses.
- You can check your progress in the Course Mastery menu, or in the Course Select on the Play Now menu. Check it before each round so you know what to shoot for.
|So Much Easier than Putting|
|Make a hole in one||(6)|
You will probably make a couple of these shots while playing towards the Platinum. But if you are in a hurry, there is an easy method of getting it out of the way.
|From the Ladies Tees|
|Complete an 18 hole round using the Red Tees|
This one is pretty easy once you set up your round properly. I got it in the very first round I played, along with Tigers Have FIR, That Was GIRrrreat! and Can You Give Me a Boost. I’d advise you to also try to get all of these in one go.
|When do we get paid?|
|Compete in an amateur championship|
You will get this trophy after winning the British, American or World Amateur Championship, depending on which one you enter. It is the third competition you come across after starting Career Mode.
|Never leave home without it|
|Earn PGA TOUR card|
This trophy is awarded after you win the Masters as an amateur in Career mode.
|Top 50 Countdown|
|Break the top 50 in EA SPORTS Golf Rankings||(1)|

|Top 10 Hits|
|Break the top 10 in EA SPORTS Golf Rankings|

|Become #1 in the EA SPORTS Golf Rankings|
To rise in the EA SPORTS Rankings, you have to win (or place) in the various career tournaments. This trophy will pop during the tournament which takes place the week after you reach the Number 1 spot.
- Do not skip a tournament that you have qualified for until you reach the Number 1 spot. If you don’t have the course, sub in one you do have that you have not mastered yet.
- Not winning enough? Lower the difficulty.
- Make sure to lower the rounds played in each tournament. See the settings menu. 1 Round is recommended.
- The trophies tend to pop in the tournament after you achieve the rank needed. So don’t worry if it does not appear right away.
|Don't quit your day job|
|Win the Masters as an amateur|
This will be the fourth tournament you get to play in during the amateur section at the start of career mode. You can gain entry to the Masters as an Amateur by winning the British, American or World Amateur Championship, depending on which one you enter.
|It's all in the Hips|
|Sink a 40ft putt||(1)|
You should not have to try for this one, as it will likely come naturally over the course of normal play. If you would like to get it out of the way though, go to St Andrews – Hole 9. It has a large fairly flat green, so knocking in a 40+ foot putt should be easy enough. Some of you are having problems with the putting system, so here are a few tips:
- ‘Guesstimate!’ Before you do anything else, move the marker to where you think you should be aiming. Use the movement markers on the grid lines to get an idea of how much the ball will turn, and whether it will run past or pull up short. The closer you can get this to where it should be, the easier it will be to perfect.
- Next use the putt preview. If you are not a good putter, ALWAYS use the putt preview, no matter how short the putt is. It’s is a free look at exactly what the ball will do, so take advantage of it. If you have made a decent effort of ‘guesstimating’ the right line, you should now see how you can tweak it to line up with the hole.
- Try to be smooth when taking the shot. It is important to keep the ‘stroke’ reasonably straight when putting, so as not to mess with the line. As for timing, use a two count: pull back – push forward. 1 – 2.
- On longer putts, the backswing will take a little longer, but always follow through at the same speed, regardless of whether a putt is 5 inches or 50 feet.
- You will hit the Perfect backswing length for a putt just before or when it just begins to turn red. Try not to overshoot or undercut this window.
- ALWAYS make sure that the ball has enough power to go past the hole. That will mean you always have a chance of getting the putt. Short putts never end well.
- Some people like to draw back very slowly on putts. You should try this out, but be warned that getting the proper follow-through speed can be tricky if the swing is out of rhythm.
- If you find that you still need a little more help, you can always press to get some advice from your caddie. He will give you a heads up on where to aim. Credit to Blessorship.
|Like a Homing Pigeon|
|From the Fairway, land within 1 yard of the flagstick from 150 yards out|
Practically unmissable. Odds are you will do this many, many times over the course of normal play. If you are having trouble, employ a little spin to ease the ball in close.
|I Own this Place|
|Defend your title in any Major|
Your first opportunity to defend a Major will be your first Masters as a pro, returning after winning it as an amateur. Just make sure to get your world ranking high enough to qualify for the competition as it comes around again.
|Small Tiger, Big Bite|
|Complete an 18 hole online head-to-head match with toddler Tiger||(2)|
You will unlock Toddler Tiger after completing The Toddler Years in Tiger Legacy mode. Enter any online strokeplay event over 18 Holes, and once you finish the round, the trophy will pop.
|Play a Four Player online match with all players using toddlers||(18)|
In order to get this trophy, you will need the help of three other players. Obviously, you all have to have a toddler unlocked to use. These are awarded as prizes in Tiger Legacy Mode.
|Can you give me a Boost?|
|Play an 18 hole round with Boost Pins equipped|
I got this in the very first round I played, along with Tigers Have FIR, From the Ladies Tees and That Was GIRrrreat!. I’d advise you to also try to get all of these in one go.

|Land within 1 yard of the flagstick from a bunker|
Another trophy you can pretty much forget about, as you will more than likely get it without trying. But if in a hurry, start aiming for greenside bunkers. Remember that all chips and pitches from inside 50 yards or so will over shoot their target marker by default. So always aim a little bit short of where you think.
|He's going the distance|
|Hit a drive over 400 yards||(3)|
This is another trophy that should come in time. But if you are in a hurry, head to a hole with plenty of fairway which heads downhill off the tee. For a few good candidates, look below. In the settings, put the wind to Gale Force, and set the course to be hard and fast.
|Like a Metronome|
|Complete 10 perfect Tempo Swings with TOUR Pro Difficulty or better||(2)|
This trophy has been causing a few issues for people. Although it says ‘Tempo’ swing in the description, it actually has to have both a perfect backswing and tempo. That means it has to read ‘Perfect’ on both the top and bottom of the indicator on the left. Also, it can indicate a Green swing (Green for good) while saying Fast on the Tempo section. So ignore the colour bar, and keep an eye on the words only.
Go to the last challenge in the Toddler section of Tiger Legacy mode: 1982 First Hole in One. The toddler golfers have a modified swing model that makes it nearly impossible to ‘over-swing’ and makes hitting a perfect tempo swing easier.
On the backswing, make as full a swing as you can. While you can still ‘under-swing’, I found it nearly impossible to ‘over-swing’. So by trying to max out the backswing, you can pretty much guarantee a ‘perfect’, so you are already halfway there.
On the downswing, again give it a liberal amount of power. It is pretty much the same as the follow through for a full size golfer, but again over-swinging is a bit harder to do, making hitting that ‘perfect’ a fair bit easier than in normal play.
You get 5 attempts for this challenge. If you have not got any ‘perfect’ swings by your last attempt, reload the challenge. But if you do get a few, make sure to finish the challenge so that they save. I managed to get my ten done by playing through the challenge only 3 or 4 times.
Warning: Putt’s don’t seem to count towards the total, and all ten of the perfect swings have to be done in one game session. If you quit out to the XMB, the count is reset when you restart the game.
|Check out my Custom Settings|
|Complete an 18 hole round using a Custom Difficulty|
This is an easy trophy. Go to the Game Settings menu. To change the difficulty to Custom, you have to alter a setting or two. If say it’s on amateur, simply set the spin setting to off. You will see Custom appear in the difficulty box. Save and exit.
|I Finally Belong!|
|Create or Join a Country Club in Game|
To create or join a Country Club, simply go to the Country Club menu and follow the instructions.
|Play in a Country Club Tournament||(2)|
Once you join a Country Club, you will have the opportunity to enter in club tournaments. The Admin or founder of each club has the ability to set up different tournaments that can be accessed through the Country Club menu's.
|I Need a Commitment|
|Earn a Four Day loyalty Bonus|
Once you become the member of a Country Club, you will have to opportunity to add XP to that club, growing it and moving it up the rankings. All completed rounds and challenges will add XP to the Club. As a general rule, if you get XP or coins for anything, then your Club will also get XP.
|Compete with a teammate in a head-to-head match launched from the Clubhouse lobby||(4)|
This is where having a few mates in your club comes in handy. Arrange to meet up in the Club Lobby. Invite the other member/members to join you in a match. Once it starts, the trophy should pop.
|Putt from the rough|
|Make a putt from the rough||(2)|
This one is easy enough once you know where to try to get it. In Play Now, set up a Strokeplay game in Pebble Beach using the following settings:
|One Small Step for Mankind|
|Win the Green Jacket in Career Mode|
You will get your first crack at this playing as an amateur after winning whichever Amateur Championship you decide to enter. On the lower difficulties, you will have no problem blowing away the field.
|Win the Green Jacket for a Record 7 times in Career Mode|
When you first enter Career mode, you goal should be to reach No.1 in the EA Rankings. Once you do this, you only have to maintain your rank within the EA SPORTS Top 100 to ensure your entry to the Masters the following year. You will now be able to skip events along the way, but do not skip more than one or two in a row without checking the leaderboards to make sure you are well within that cut line. Also, make sure to play in the Majors, as they will yield higher rankings than ordinary tournaments. Try to keep a decent buffer between you and those outside the Top 100 in the rankings for safety. If you skip too much, you will drop outside the top tier and miss out on that years tournament. Thanks to Dangles for the heads up.
|Swing and a miss|
|Whiff the ball||(3)|
You can do this on most shots. At setup, move the red crosshair indicator in the box on the right of the screen with the right stick. Push it up as high as it can go. Now when you take a shot, it should miss the ball entirely.
|Complete an 18 hole online head-to-head match with toddler Ricky|
You can unlock Toddler Ricky by completing the Tiger Legacy Bonus Challenge called Young Gun Ricky Fowler. You will unlock the bonus challenges after completing the others.
|That was Easy|
|Beat the course record of 63 at the Masters (In Career Mode)||(2)|
During your attempt to win the Masters for the seven times needed, you will have to play the course at least 7 or 8 times. That’s plenty of time to do this one, so it shouldn’t be a problem. Get to know the course if you are having problems: height changes, which side of the green to hit to, where to avoid, etc. Be careful to avoid the water, particularly on Hole 12, 13 and 15.
