From teamxbox.com via gonegold.com forums:

Here are the fixes in the auto-update:

 

Fix Dirty Disc Error seen after playing on-line then immediately playing career mode and completing a tournament event.

 

Fix to allow non-autoupdated Links 2004 to play with autoupdated Links 2004 via System-Link. While a very small customer scenario, it can come up.

 

Fix career skills exploit when turning off Xbox at rewards screen. Note: people who have used this exploit will have their skill points gained through this exploit removed from their point list. Any legit money earned is returned to the players bank account to respend. We debated hard on how to solve this issue. I think we have a fair solution.

 

Fix Live! and XSN Sports Pin Positions not being identical for all players. Now in all rounds, whether Solo played, or together, everyone will have the same exact pin locations

 

Fix Live! and XSN Sports not being placed at the correct tees for your rounds in certain cases. This was a rare case, only on certain courses with specific tee settings.

 

Fix to allow balls to be hit out of rocks or trees if they come to rest inside of one. We turned off collisions inside of rocks and trees. This should make it much more difficult to end up in one (most common case was a ball rolling under the lip of a rock that was not planted fully into the terrain) and in the cases a person is in one, they can hit out instead of having it bounce around.

 

Fix Game Freeze if system date has changed between log off then log onto Live!

 

Fix Premium Content Download of Kapalua. 5 holes, including the 18th were not using Championship tees. Now on the 18th hole you are >600 yards away from the tee (our computation is using straight line, so it reads 601yds I believe).

 

Fix Live! leaderboard stats being cleared or corrupted during heavy load.

 

Fix XSN Sports data package posting issues during heavy load.

 

Added rumble to controller when users join the lobby when hosting a Live! game. Now if you create a game, and are waiting for people to join, you can switch your TV to the news and when someone joins, your controller will rumble. You can then switch back from the news to start the game. Controller will also rumble in the lobby if the host leaves and host-duties migrate to another Xbox.

 

I bolded a few items that interested me. I'd heard there was a skills exploit. Can you believe there were matches where people in the same game had different pin locations! That's why I'm always losing, I get the crappy pins. And how cool is that rumble feature? Now I just keep my controller in my lap and I really will be pleased to host a game.

This explains what happened to me the time I got stuck under a bridge! Totally ruined a great round, I got the max stroke penalty.

Hehe. When Datatox and I were playing one time, I got stuck behind some wall, near the Fairway. I couldn't hit to the right, because the levee or whatever it was, went on pretty far. So, I tried hitting it to the rough, in some trees, to salvage what I could, but everytime I hit it there, it said I was out-of-bounds, and placed me right back...!

 

The people I was playing with were pretty amused, I laughed about it afterwards; I wasn't sure if I should mention that I was stuck, till they all had hit their's in, and they were already watching me...I hit the limit too! :oops:

I don't have LINKS, but this is a way cool feature! I wish they would add this to the LIVE main menu, so you could boot the Xbox with no disc, and watch TV and have it vibrate when you get an invitation!

 

 

Carlos.

 

P.S. does it work with other shows, or just the news? ;)

Yes it was pretty amusing. Of course we were laughing with you and not at you as we would never do anything like that.

 

Anyway, I've had that happen before and it is incredibly frustrating. Hopefully this latest patch will rememdy that.
