    No idea why - I just reinstalled OS X, and TW08 used to use 100% CPU (both cores? Not sure if it is only using 1 core), but now it never goes above 50%. Any other intense application uses 100% CPU (both cores).

    It means that it is a bit sluggish, and if I'm doing something else while TW08 is loading the next hole, it is pretty laggy.

    Any ideas?

    What are you using to monitor it? Some applications combine core usage when reporting CPU usage-- so full utilization of one core while the other is idle is 50% of 100%. Others sum them; full utilization of one while the other is idle is 100% of 200%.

    Using iStat Pro - Activity Monitor reports 100% (out of 200%). So it seems like it is only using one core.

    Puzzled..

    Still only using 50%, even after a reinstall of OS X.
