Game became dramatically more playable with a 1600 DPI mouse by disabling v-sync, adjusting the in-game sensitivity, and using the in-game swing calibration activity.
Tested on the following hardware:
- Ryzen 5 3600 on a Gigabyte AORUS 450
- 16 GB 3200 DDR4
- EVGA GTX1060 6GB
- Redragon M801 adjustable DPI mouse (600 – 12,400 DPI)
Here’s the steps, they’re pretty simple.
- Turn off v-sync in the display settings. Optionally reset the display settings (other than resolution) to their defaults and tweak from there. I ended up setting everything to “High” and the render distance slider to 75.
- If your mouse has adjustable DPI settings, set it to 1600 DPI.
- Change the “Sensitivity” setting in the PGA 2K21 settings menu to somewhere between 75-85. Yes, I know it seems counter-intuitive to raise the sensitivity, but trust me. With my mouse, I ended up setting mine to 82.
- Now go and do the “Swing Calibration” in the Practice menu inside the game. Do as it says and try to keep your downswing timing relatively consistent.
After doing these 4 things, you should see a dramatic difference in controlling the downswing timing. Go hit on the practice range or play a few rounds until it feels natural, and then go dominate your friends and the PGA Tour.
