    Hitting the ding was supposed to give the the better distance and would go where you aimed. Now, for the last 2 months, i hit the ding and my ball goes nowhere near the aimed point. This even affects the putt. Don't know why this has changed, but don't count on the ding giving you the shot you hit any more. At least this has been the conclusion of myself and many friends. Hitting the ding is like a crap shoot, but you over come and adapt and move on with your game. Still the best and most fun golf game out there.

    Classic WTF WGT The 5 th at St Andys. A dinged 6 iron (180yds) with 75% bspin.

    Call me a cab please Caddy!

    not disputing this is a weird shot, but what is punch distance on that club? Am guessing in the 150 -160 range. it is would then make the shorter landing and catching the back side of a slope a more plausible explanation, not that it makes it right. still aggravating. Sometimes I have hit shots when it seems like the shot mode was changed or the mode I wanted didn't take (almost like a logic hang up) it is as though it is stuck and you have to reselect to engage what you are really wanting... probably happens to me the most going between pitch, chip, or punch modes. Will think I am on the correct setting and maybe the caddy switches it on me while I am not looking...

    You have been here long enough to know that there is a cycle of sorts that the game goes through. More often than not, shots are accurate. However, there is a cycle of WTF occurs.

    You might even notice that there are times when you think to yourself "OH NO" and it turns out to be a brilliant shot. IT is all part of the game. The funny part being you never see people coming to complain about their "mishit" shot ending up within a foot of the cup.

    Balls hit over bunkers are from 20-25 yards short for me.  The same shot from the fairway with no bunkers in play is pretty accurate.  I have never understood the short results over bunkers.  If I add 20-25 yards to the shot, I'm sure I'll fly the green.

    I've also noticed that distance is totally random when shots of about 100 yards are into a side-wind, either direction.

    With WGT, your results are pretty much randomized.  I'm guessing the accuracy depends on how much $$$ you spend for clubs and balls..

    putting today was very goofy. Could not get the ball in the hole at all. Pace seemed quite inconsistent, leading to several 3 and 4 putts

    We should all be glad there are unexplain occurrences, otherwise we don’t have anything to complain about..makes the game very easy, and boring. I for one, would not stick around for this game, if it’s just that easy.

    I know this is awhile ago now but it's nice to hear I'm not going completely crazy! Hitting the ding and being happy with calculations and then boom....20 yards short? Thank you.
