    Where is the lie box you guys speak of? I know where the lie (fairway,bunker,fescue) is and know what the percentages mean but as far as the colors you guys are talking about I can't seem to find/understand where/what you mean. Is it possible that they aren't present with starter sets?

     

    Thanks darren

    I had my first go - by mistake - in a UL RG today.

    Mmmmmm......

    I'm not so concerned about the slope of the lie (in real life), just where the ball is in relation to my feet.  Rather than dots, it should be like an elevation.  More below your feet, more right.  Above, more left.

    But what totally threw me was uphill lies.  I had a 135 yard shot with a tail wind and nn uphill fairway lie.  Nailed an 8i (145y) and it went...............103 yards.  I can say after 30 years of playing A grade golf that I've NEVER seen anything close to a fairway lie that'd do that!

    If you playing a game that is set-up for U/Lies the colored box is where your feet is on the Ground.

    The short game needs to be adjusted indeed, but for the rest it is a challenge although not all players like it. Hope again, WGT comes with the draw-fade feature moving the ball dot left or right.

    This:

    There's another around the "lie" ball down right, and this shows more details of elevations, e.g. in rough or bunkers. Colours change to yellow, orange and red when the situation becomes nastier. I've seen my wedge play 10% of it's nominal length, i.e. 70 yds for 8.

    A short&rough guide:

    30+ bunker: only wedges. For high %%: punch.

    40-50 rough: punch up to hybrid, try top spin, runs for miles. Be sure to land on short stuff.

    60+ rough/fescue/weeds: wedge punch, hit, pray and hope.
