How is being told you are a top office tools user an insult ? I appreciate the work that went into their being so good . I m not sure you understand the value of those shot aids and spreadsheets . Some top players would enter and win . most would not . could not .
First - please quote someone if there is any doubt as to which post you are responding to. Three separate replies are not required.
We know well how the "shot aids and spreadsheets" work and what "value" they are. I don't think you uderstand what it takes to develop your own calcs - for most, it means doing the hard work of a lot of practice and developing an understanding of how the virtual game works, combined with an understanding of golf. The aids build up a feel (like in RL golf), that you draw on when playing. I developed a spreadsheet and I have begun playing more and more without it to check my learning. It works - I play much better now, without my aids, than I did before developing them.
How many top players have you watched play on twitch or via their posted youtube videos? I have watched quite a few playing multiple types of games, either single player, or match play, A/S, skins, etc., as well as practicing. Most play their shots so fast, you cannot keep up with them.
Most top players WOULD still win, playing w/o their external aids. Feel free to challenge any of them to a match with a 30-sec shot clock - but you will need to pony up some credits, maybe 500+ to get any interest in a 0-hole match.
The insult is that you are making the claim you repeated - that most top players could not play fast (w/o their "aids) and win.
