    Well, the cry babies got to wgt.  WGT  changed the use of wedges on the greens, with this last update. Android users beware, there is no longer any use of backspin on the greens, and so far, Apple users aren't effected, at this time. 

    not surprising if true.

    it was going from a situational thing to 5-10 people using the shot on just about every putt greater than 6 feet.

    So how is using a wedge, on the green, any different than, those that use calculators, rulers, and charts, to play the game.   They are all tools to improve your performance, are they not.  A wedge shot, isn't something magical that works every time, those that use it, took the time to learn and use it, maybe just as good as charts and rulers.

    Not sure anyone disagrees with that - I guess WGT just decided to "protect" their greens?

    Never did get an answer - did they stop mobile from using a wedge on the green or just from applying backspin?  I know you can still use a wedge on green on PC - just never could use backspin on PC.

    Yes they stopped the backspin on android, but as of now you can still use it on Apple.  Yes, they found out that all those divots, in the virtual greens, we're costly to repair every night !

    Well I'm still using my Wutter and I'm on Android .....just needs some tweeking here and there...lol.....greens 12 and 13 are proving to be hard .....but I'm pretty confident I will get it sorted ....also I think it will be easier to do the shot with no back spin .....btw I'm the guy who invented the name WUTTER .....at least I'm pretty sure I did .....wedge plus putter equals WUTTER.....GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE WHO WUTTS !!!!!

    I think not.

    You can map out carry distances (I have for PC) but the ball will not slow or stop as with BS.

    Apple users are now affected, thought it was technical glitch, asked WGT, so far no response, knew I should have checked the forum. Thanks for the info 👍
