This has been a problem with me as well. It is not the gradual acceleration but the sudden jump close to the time I need to click. Some times this affects my long distance putter as well?
+1 When playing my meter starts off as smooth as silk no problems at all . But what I get is the spike when in what I call my click zone . It will happen from tee to green yes I even get spiked when putting . Both practice stroke play and ranked rounds as well . I have noticed that it happens the most when I am spot on with my yardage and shot selection . It happens even more when scoring well .
The spike will throw my shot wide right by 3+ yards or more and other times it will check my meter short and cause me to hit early . This happens every game and every course and in my opinion a deliberate meter manipulation by WGT . In the past it was speculated that this is done to combat the alleged auto dinger and players shooting low scores .
If true then the problem is , is that it only works on honest players and those who dont use cheat software . I wil say that due to this I no longer buy expensive balls nor do I see a reason to upgrade my clubs anymore . If the game is going to manipulate my shots and play to cause me to play poorly then why should I play more ?
But everything is not our fault or our computer or our service provider . Even though WGT says so . But thats coming from a company that cant even fix and resolve the issues with their own product .
