Went on sale at Steam for $40 CAD so I picked it up.  Graphically the biggest improvement is that there is 3D grass.  The game is not worth $80 CAD and is more like an update.  Still no pot bunkers, or gimmes (I think) and the UI is basically unchanged.  I jumped right in at Masters level which was what I was playing at in TGC and took me a round to get back in to it.  Also not using the power bar or green grid.  I disabled the gallery and the commentary.  Have yet to see a gallery that looks decent and the commentary gets old very quickly.

I have the most fun earning money to buy clothes and equipment.  After two rounds I had enough to buy new clothes and a Taylor Made driver.  Oddly enough the Taylor Made had less carry distance than the default HB  driver.  I enjoy the putting which is quite a challenge, even more so as there seems to be only one view in this game whereas in TGC you could hit the V key to get additional views.

Anyway,  will start playing with my friends who moved over to 2K21 sometime ago shortly.  I'll still probably play in the weekly tournament over at PGLS depending on what the course is.

yeah... like free!   with an average of 30 players playing, I am pretty sure this game will be dead in the next few months to come.

As long as it simply continues to function as is, which all signs point to, it will be just great for those of us who still enjoy it daily.

Not trying to sway people one way or the other but people who own the game on console and PC will tell you the PC version plays much better than console. I play the PC side and at TGCC compete against the console players in tournaments. Also tons of people on the PC side in Society play. Just my 2 cents and 29.99 on steam right now.

 For computer games, it's a tough genre to make money apparently...lol

 Interesting link...I checked out 2k21 just out of curiosity, and appears the "enthusiasm" has dropped considerably.

 Yeah, tough business! Even the TGC2019 has dwindled to less than 150 (average).

With 2k21 going on sale for black Friday I went ahead and picked up a copy beings a lot of my friends have it. I believe only but one of my friends still play PG. Anyhow I fired it up today for the first time to play a round with them. When you get on the greens instead of using the V key try using the tab or I believe alt also will work to get the other views. The biggest difference I noticed was the 3-D grass looks much better in this version. Also the textures are a little bit nicer. So I'll probably play this for a couple weeks till I get bored.

Thanks for the tip Justin, you are absolutely correct, the Tab key provides additional views for putting.  At Masters level for 2K21 compared to Pro level for PG I find it easier to hit the ball straight.  The short game is still kind of weird and you can do things like hit splash shots from lies outside of bunkers.  They should  limit pitches to 70 yards.  In real golf you can't pitch it 120 yards, or you would see the Pro's pitching it on the 17th at Sawgrass and the 12th at Augusta.

I like the putting in this game as it is all feel.  It takes some getting used to how the putter blade seems to keep going back even after you stop your backswing.

Two of my friends have joined the Sim Tour where all aids are turned off and you play at Legend level.  The top players are all  PS4 so it must be easier than the mouse.  

I think it is an improvement over TGC 2019 but I have about a dozen suggestions for the next version which I hope to post at the 2K21 forum if and when they approve registration request.
