This achievement is for accumulating 2,500 EA Sports GamerNet points via online challenges.

Quick Tips:
- 18 Hole Showdown will earn you the most points (1 round can earn you all 2,500 in some cases).
- Search the challenges using Busted Status (Not busted challenges earn you more points).
- Search the challenges using Points. If you know what you need, don't waste your time doing challenges beneath you.
- Search the challenges using Course (eliminate the downloadable content you may not have, or keep to a course you are good at).
- A Tie counts as a Win.
- You can select your own created golfer or a professional golfer to play the challenges with (very helpful for those just starting out).

Below are step by step instructions on how to look at your score and the different ways to earn GamerNet points.

From the main menu select: Quick Play --> XBOX Live --> EA Sports GamerNet

On this screen you will see not only your daily accumulated GamerNet points (upper right hand), but you will also see your total points in the center of the screen. You can also select Leaderboards from this screen to see your rank and total amount of GameNet points.

Okay, now that you know how to see how many points you have (or don't have), let's work on getting you some.

From here you will have several different catagories to choose from to play in an attempt to beat (or tie) other gamers from around the world and earn some GamerNet points.

You can find challenges in the following catagories:
Long Drive
9 Hole Showdown
18 Hole Showdown
Single Hole

Select whichever you feel comfortable with (the most points are obtained with an 18 hole showdown win) and find a challenge you think you can beat or at least tie.
I found it easiest to hit Y to search and narrow your choices for the challenges. While conducting a search you can choose whether or not a challenge has been busted or not (unbusted challenges yield higher points), the courses involved (so you can eliminate any downloadable content you may not have purchased), and you can even search for a point amount to shoot for.
Find the challenge you want and go for it. You can either select your created golfer or a real life professional (including Tiger himself). You can retry the challenge over and over until you Bust it, or give up...or until the game freezes (which it only did on me during the online challege modes).

There are some amazing clips out there, so have fun.

On a side note, you can also upload your own challenges while you are attempting to beat others. I'm not sure if the "producer points" add to your GamerNet total, but if you think you cannot be beat, post it for others to humble you.
