One of the new tricks is the swinging mechanism, the 3-click swing, which eliminates using the analog stick to swing the club. This method of swinging is so old that it’s part of the furniture in golf and EA Sports PGA Tour and is more for players who prefer the traditional gameplay style.

The fourth step is to press X to apply all changes made. Once confirmation pops up in the bottom right corner, you can select your game mode and 3-click away. If you struggle to adjust to the old-school swinging, you can always change back to your previous settings.

Very important to note: If you change while in-game, the settings will save for that round of golf only and revert to the previous setting after you’re done with the full round. Players will have to change the settings in the main settings hub for it to be permanent.
