    Anyone have any idea why WGT/Top Golf continues to show the words DORMIE and Water Hazzard when they are no longer in the Rules of Golf ???  Dormie was removed from the rule book and Water Hazzard has been changed to Penalty Area (as of Jan 1, 2019.)....shouldn't they correct this ???

    With all due respect, with the release of the new standalone version, I would rather the developers work on the plethora of issues that need to be addressed before the end of 2020.

    Something a minute as Dormie and Water Hazard can be addressed at a later time.

    EDIT: I am not even sure if those items are used in the new version and/or the mobile version at this time. Maybe someone else can chime in on that.

    No they shouldn't.

    Penalty area is the 18 yard box in a football game and dormie is a descriptive term for a match play situation, not a rule. 

    Next you'll be in Edinburgh telling us Greyfriars Bobby has a new name ;-))

    WGT needs to learn the proper drop area for balls in the water...No one in their right mind is going to drop the ball in 30/40 rough when there is fairway a few feet away...or on the other side of the water hazard in deep rough

    Unless they add match play or A/S to Mobile and the new PC version the term dormie will not be used in either version,
