Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters
Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters is a sports golf game and part of the Tiger Woods PGA Tour series published by EA, which began on the PlayStation One. The game features The Masters tournament at Augusta National Golf Club, as well as commentary by Jim Nantz and David Feherty.
Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters received mostly positive reviews, with an average score of 81%, praised for its graphics, inclusion of the Masters, and overall gameplay, though criticized for not being particularly different from its previous installment.
The game was first released in March 2011, and includes four online trophies. At the moment, the online servers are still up. However, as of June 2013, no new daily or weekly tournaments have been posted in the Live Tournament section. Playing a Live Tournament is necessary in unlocking the Online Participation trophy. Since this single trophy can no longer be acquired, the Platinum for Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters has since become Not Obtainable.
The Online Participation trophy requires you to play either a daily or weekly Live Tournament. However, as of June 2013, no new Live Tournaments have been posted online, which means this trophy, and therefore the Platinum, is Not Obtainable. Yet there are still 45 other trophies which can be unlocked, so if you're interested, then read on.
Your first trophy will most likely be Who's Your Caddie for completing the opening prologue.
After that, we recommend starting with the Road to the Masters. This is the career mode in which you create a golfer, start at the bottom, and work your way to becoming the number one golfer in the PGA Tour. If you wish to make things easier, set the difficulty to Amateur and the AI Scoring to normal in the game settings. There are a number of story-related trophies which you'll unlock naturally along the way, as well as pins for the Pin Collector trophy.
Once you've played through at least once and you've gotten a good feel for the game and controls, we recommend hopping online and getting those 3 online trophies out of the way, before the servers eventually shut down. You will need to win 10 online games to further work towards the Pin Collector trophy. Also, be sure to unlock the GamerNet Tourist and Hold My Bag As I Post My Clip trophies, as well. As we mentioned earlier, the Online Participation trophy can no longer be unlocked.
With those online trophies done, you can head back into the Masters and work on unlocking the Masters Legend trophy, which requires a total of 7 tournament wins - which do not need to be consecutive. Also, at some point, be sure to get yourself a good lead after becoming #1 in order to keep your standing for 281 weeks to unlock the Broken Record trophy.
By now you should have a pretty good chunk of the trophies. You can next complete the 9 Master Moments, which will also award you with another pin.
Finally, the rest is basically mopping-up anything you still may be missing. This may include mastering any courses you haven't yet done, or any pins still missing towards unlocking the Pin Collector trophy. Be sure to check out the trophy guides in our Links page to see what you're still missing and what the requirements are.
