-During Rivals mode, save your profile every time you exit to the main menu. Sometimes you will get offered a sponsorship when you have done something great, such as defeating Tiger in one of his challenges. If it is early in the game and EA Sports, Nike, Nike TW Collection, Adidas, or Under Armour offer you a sponsorship, decline it. After that, reload your profile, go into Rivals mode again, and do not save your profile. Exit to the main menu again. Most of the time you will be offered a different sponsorship. This is done so that you can get the aforementioned sponsorships later in the game to have many more items to select from, with larger payouts. If you take a Precept, TaylorMade, Bridgestone, etc. sponsorship early, you will get small payouts, but only on a few items.
-At the main menu, go to "Game Modes". Click on "Custom". On the followingscreen set "Game Type" to "Match" then set the desired number of holes. Next, click on "Side Games" on the left side of the screen. On this screen put a check in the box next to each side bet then set the bets to the maximum totals. Then, click "Next". Now add your created golfer or golfer of choice and another golfer that you do not care about. Click "Next" and select the course you want to play on, then click "Next". When you start your match just use the golfer you want to get the money and experience points. Do your best then play badly with the other golfer. At the end of the match you will win a lot of money over side totals and get at least 100 experience points.
