Someone told me there was going to be no caddy in 14, is that true ?. Why would EA take out the caddy that seems silly to me. Having a caddy is part of the sport, golfers have caddies in real golf on tour. Thats why a caddy is in the game, EA Sports its in the game.

Not sure what the plan is for this year, but the visual representation of the caddy was removed last year and replaced with a "caddie mode" to help set up shots/puts, if desired. I thought that was a better approach than the physical caddy, however I would like to see caddies, walking scorers, etc. represented on the course. Seeing your golfer walking all alone down the middle of the fairway in a PGA tournament looks a bit odd.

However don't think this is the case.On one of the posted pictures you can see "Ask PGA Pro " button in the HUD.So I think they changed the name,but still

Yes, the caddie has been re-branded to 'Ask a PGA Pro' and can only be used when playing offline practice rounds on north american courses.

WOAH! So no more caddy online, live tournaments, PGA Tour or anything? That'll make a lot of people happy.

Sean can you give us more on the practice rounds? Is it going to be like couple of years ago when you can drop the ball anywhere on the course or is just a 'play now' round with mulligans

No, practice rounds are basically last year's Play Now. We've replaced Play Now with Quick Tournaments which more simulates a Sunday round of golf with a full leaderboards, announcers, crowds, stats, etc...So now a Practice Round is just a local match with up to 4 players with no commentary, the pga tour pro, no crowds, just a scorecard, etc...as if you were playing with friends.

I think the caddy should be an option same as TW13.

I agree with you. It should be a option like 13. In 13 players could turn it on or off, online or offline. No one had to play with the caddy if they didn't want to. So I don't understand why the option has to be taking out. And replaced with the ask a pro, and you can only play with that in one mode, sounds kind of cheap. Should of just left it alone, everyone could play the way they wanted to the way it was.

Especially, when the lie on the hud is incorrect when indicating the lie. Many times the green grid and the hud contradict one another. Here, I would ask the caddy for a hint instead of guessing.
