    I found the easiest way to get to this was long drive contests. Get one of the max stat costumes and put it on then buy one of the long hitting expert drivers. then go into the tuner menu and select the diver and adjust the distance to max and the workability to min... this will make your driver hit really long and straight...also adjust the spin to minimum, ill explain later.

    Now enter the gamernet channels and look for the long drive contests and find the ones that have yet to be beaten and you will be able to drive it further than 99% of them. When hitting make sure you get straight and with A LOT of power or what is needed.You will notice that the club is a bit hard to hit straight but the thing is you only have to hit one good drive to get the points and it can easily beat the 400 point challenges. And if you need to put forward spin on the ball by pressing up and hitting "a" on the pad very quickly until it lands. this will often pop the ball out out an additional 15 yrds and is made more powerful by having no backspin on the ball.

    With this set up i got all 50k in 3 days of actually trying and It helps you get A LOT of points in your regular play in the instant challenges as everyone plays it safe there.

    onemorechancGreat explanation. I did this last night with a friend, and went from 3,000 to 50,000 points in about 90 minutes.

    My recommendation is wolf creek 17. Hit an average drive for say 370 post the win conditions to gamer net, now wait for someone to better it and post their own. Then beat that for easy 400 points or 800 if you are quick and lucky. The max drive is 424yrds on this one so keep that in mind when accepting a challenge.

    If you head on gamer net - jan 11 - there are loads of easy to beat wolf creek 17 easy 400 points. I went from 35k to 50k last night in no time.

    I personally found 9-hole challenges the easiest way of boosting gamernet points.

    Sheshan is IMO the easiest course. Use the filter and pick 9-hole challenges that have 8 or 9 birdie runs plus maybe requiring a couple of eagles. The front 9 at sheshan is slightly more challenging than the back 9. Some holes are gimmee eagles (e.g. 2nd) so don't be put off if it requires a score of -11 or so.

    Each of these is worth between 1600 and 2000pts if they've not been busted.

    Long drives worth around 400pts are worth trying as well if your stats are up to it, the loading times are frustrating and they'll often get busted whilst you attempt them though.

    Whichever method you choose, it's going to take a while to get to 50k!

    Elem3ntal80There was a live update and now you can play challenges that have been busted already, and you still get the points from them if you bust it too.

    ThrillaGnatSomething happened and Gamernet no longer shows me which challenges I have already beaten. Does anyone know how to fix this? I don't want to have to check my progress after each challenge to make sure I haven't played it. I already tried clearing my cache.
