    they exist for sure. Just played totally different pins in a CTTH RG

     

    Course was fully mapped, so why are these not included as options in stroke play? Would change things up quite a bit

    We do get different pin positions at St Andy's, they change fairly regularly.

    I don't mean the regular 2. There is a 3rd set of pins at St Andy's used in CTTH. Since course is fully mapped, they should have the photos to use most of these

    There's one hole on St. Andrews that I always got the same pin in a ranked round. That's the 11th hole. Every time I play a ranked round, I get the back pin location. I've never got the front location, at any tier.

    That 3rd set of pins at St. Andrews was  actually the original pins when St. Andrews was a CTTH only course so they probably were never mapped for anything other than CTTH play.

    how soon before it became an 18 hole course was it only CTTH? 

     

    I've had putts many times from where those pins were shot. Surely, they cannot be any worse than Kiawah's pins

    Try switching between easy-med-hard in a practice round to get the front pin to show. I've sometimes seen it show in match play ... do not recall it in Altshot.

    I get the other pin position in a practice round. I just don't understand why it's never shown up in a ranked round. I can't think of any other courses and pin positions where that happens.

    I got it to show after 5 resets of 18 holes  in RR.

    I tried resetting the back 9 ten times .. no go. Then I did the Full 18 set.

    So I guess you will have better luck getting it when you set it for 18 holes.

    If you want to check to see if it is there before you tee off, go MENU>SCORECARD - back 9.

    @Zio

    Thanks!

    I'll try out an 18-hole round. I rarely play 18 holes, which could explain it.
