Rockstar has released a patch for the PC version of Grand Theft Auto 5 pretty sharpish, and it sorts out quite a few things. Namely, though, it fixes those pesky installation issues and the issue where the installer would drain your CPU like a vampire and crash.
The full platter of fixes is more than that, though, so feast your full eyes on the buffet of patch notes below.

- Added a grid to the Golf mini-game to show the topology of the green while putting
