Career Augusta National Challenge Attempt - Hole 2 Completed!


Recommended Posts

I am going to be attempting theĀ Augusta National Golf Club Challenge that can be found here. Since I have only been playing for 4 weeks, my only goal is to complete all of the holes, and if I get a score under +18, that isĀ a bonus šŸ˜¶. I will be using Man City. Here goes...

Hole 1 - Tea Olive (Par 4)

SoĀ you've picked your team and are ready to start on this mammoth journey. What? Tea Olive? Yes, every hole at Augusta is named after the flower or tree that grows on that particular hole. Anyway, it's a flower native to Asia and is a fairly tricky hole to start off with. A birdie is very much achievable however it may be wise to just accept the par for the first hole,Ā keep your score at 0 and move on. After all nobody likes dropping a shot straight from the off.

ChallengeĀ - Buy an Asian GK and ensure he concedes as few league goals as possible. He must play every league game in full but you can buy a backup in case heā€™s unavailable.

Birdie - 0-8Ā conceded

Par - 9-18Ā conceded

Bogey - 19-27Ā conceded

Double Bogey - 28+Ā conceded

Players Selected

I choose Wang Dalei, who very surprisingly developed like a wonderkid at 31 years old! Also, I realized that he can play striker as well, so now that this hole is complete I will be retraining him as a target man for a future hole.

Beginning of the Season

By January the man had jumped to 15 in multiple attributes, and by the end of the season, he reached 16 handling!

End of Season

For a backup, I chose former Cardiff City goalkeeper Neil Etheridge.

Transfers

Spoiler

We were fairly active in the transfer market, the main departures being Ederson, Jesus, and Walker.Ā The main additions were Saka and Verratti, who went straight into the startingĀ XI, and Donnurumma who was signed to be the long-term goalkeeperĀ in January and loaned back to Milan as he wouldn't have been able to be used anyway. Kaio Jorge had a fantastic season on loan at affiliate Girona, scoring for fun in the La Liga Smartbank

Hole 2 - Pink Dogwood (Par 5)

ThisĀ is your chance to make up some early ground and get ahead of the game before the moreĀ challenging holes start. It really is a case of risk versusĀ reward, however, in seasons 2Ā and 3.

ChallengeĀ - Buy a striker from a club that wears pink (away kits and 3rd kits are allowed). In the first season, your striker must score as many as possible in all comps. The first season total enables what you can aim for in season 2 (example - 70Ā goalsĀ in season 1 means you will earn birdie if you beat it in season 2, but you couldnā€™t go for eagle). Failure to beat your season 1 target will result in a double bogey.

EagleĀ - 90+ scored

Birdie - 70-89Ā scored

Par - 50-69Ā scored

Bogey - 30-49Ā scored

Double Bogey - Under 30 scored

I took a risk on this one, my first choice was Bale, but he didn't want to join, so I went with the Spanish wonderkid Ansu Fati, starting with an Aerial Ability of just 9.

Player Performance

It was a disaster. 10-11 Aerial Ability and 12 Stamina didn't help his cause, but it was the injury that really hurt his season.

Screenshot_2021-02-15-09-38-04.thumb.png.c9cbaff7a94226f903a593a52613d710.png

The injury came at the worst time in the season, as he missed more than 8 matches, and he was on fire with about a goal per game when the injury came, and it completely wiped out his momentum, and he struggled for fitness and form, missing loads of sittersĀ until April when he started to improve again.Ā The UCL win meant a few more games in the CWC, but it is split across seasons because the season changes on June 24.

Screenshot_2021-02-17-13-57-56.thumb.png.e857423f5c36968c11ad48aca1de1bba.png
In the last game of the season on June 23, he scored 4 goals, but it wasn't enough to get into the bogey range.

Screenshot_2021-02-17-13-54-46.thumb.png.3215920736e1851600bd8837b62dca19.png

He then proceeded to finish the CWC with 12 goals which if the games were earlier would've counted for that season, but sadly, the score for the hole is a double bogey

Final Result

Ansu Fati scoredĀ 27 goals in all competitions meaning that the result for this hole is a double bogey.

A dreadful result and the only positive is that next season is basically a free season, because it doesn't matter how many he scores, the result is already a bogey.Ā So I will overhaul the team and start testing tactics for future holes.

Ohh unlucky. Shouldā€™ve went for a more experienced lad like Tammy Abraham. Donā€™t worry, you got 16 more holes to conquer!

Yeah, I somehow managed toĀ forgot that Chelsea had a pink shirt, and then remembered a few days before deadline day and desperately tried to sign him but I couldn't do it in time. I was really disappointed about Bale not joining, he has some really nice stats for a Target Man.

Hole 2: Season 2

So with nothing to play for this season, I focused on strengthening the squad and preparing for the next hole.

Transfers

Some significant activityĀ in the transfer market, getting in some real quality with De Jong, Sancho, Dest, Kounde, and Todibo, as well as selling on some players that were getting older for significant sums of money.

A nice improvement for Fati even though it wasnā€™t your focus. This event is hard but very rewarding as you learn so much about the game throughout.

Good luck for the next hole.
