Best Golf game for PC running Windows


A close friend & I live in parts that are anything but golf-friendly during 6-7 months of the year. Therefore we are looking for a way to get our golf fix during the off-season.

I thought EA's Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2014 would be the answer but then discovered that both the 2013 & 2014 versions were produced only for XBox & PS. And both the last PC version (2012) and the online version were discontinued earlier this year due to terrible reviews and massive customer complaints.

Therefore, I would appreciate suggestions from anyone who knows  PC Golf software. The only two requirements I can think of are that:

1) it has RealSwing or TruSwing capability (where you move the mouse back for the backswing and then move it quickly forward for the stroke) and

2) users can play together from different locations.

In short there is nothing on the PC now that meets your requirements in terms of being able to play with another player in a different location and generally nothing that has good reviews since Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2008. The only way to be able to do what you want is to play on either one of the console versions but this would obviously mean investing in a console if you don't already have one.
