Some folks get affected while others don't. Just look at the money earned every month. ITs the same players and has been forever. I have never lipped out so many putts that I have within the past week. The wind on some of these tournaments is always against me...can't even reach some par 4's that I usually do...Yet I look at the scores and I see a 52...LOL. To perfectly play every round is absurd. Never ever withdrawing because of VEM. Having an average after the update so now it effects every round and see being at almost a 52...REALLY! That skinny dweeb that I would love to see in public sometime always wins.
Wait. You are a TC, you have good earnings, and obviously play well. You are not alone in just having "one of those days/weeks/whatever - it happens in the game and in RL as well.
I watch some of the streamed and youtube players and see excellent players who almost never make a blunder, very few mistakes, win a lot of tourneys (RGs, especially), yet still have what we call a WGT shot sometimes. It just happens. To everyone.
For a couple of weeks this year, I went through exactly what you described as " I have never lipped out so many putts that I have within the past week. The wind on some of these tournaments is always against me...can't even reach some par 4's that I usually do". Seriously, I played one of my favorite (easy) par 5 holes (CB#8) multiple times those weeks (as a 1-hole game to make sure the CDP kept going) and got relatively strong headwinds about a dozen times in a row. It did not matter, since the 1-holer did not affect anything but the CDP/XP but it was frustrating. I lipped out putts, etc, over and over, in other play.
And then...things went back to normal. I don't really blame anything on the VEM because it does have a degree of randomness built-in that is related to the clubs, balls, and environment at the time. I joked about that before, but I did spend some time reading up on the patents related to VEM (that is about all you will be able to find out about it unless you are a WGT programmer!) and see nothing unusual. We are just paranoid sometimes.
