It’s a video game, and inconsistencies is part of it.
It doesn't have to be. That is what a tech support team and updates are supposed to be for. I think it's safe to say at this point that WGT tech support are either on vacation right now or they just aren't your ordinary gaming tech support team...to say it nicely.
I've even seen opponents hit in the water on hole 1 of St. Andrews and get an obstruction ruling instead of water hazard. Flagsticks missing since before I began this game. 20-30mph wind effect when only 3-5mph is shown. Oh and I know everyone here has hit one of those rocks sitting in the middle of a green before. Wacky stuff that is easily fixed if certain people weren't asleep at their desks.
