    "Practice" is correct in the US.  YSMV.

    ...................................................................

    Anyway, practice mode is helpful anywhere you can find it.  Just because you might not use it does not mean it is useless.  I like to practice everything including CTTH and it is terribly inefficient to restart all the time.

    BTW - I do take notes and use my regular ball and notes are even better when you can play practice mode with different shot types.  And yes - restart to get different winds but not to take one shot.

    Well said.

    Now to the mulligan feature, yep you go bang away on the last hole for example with your mulligan and a starter ball, and when it comes to actual game play, and maybe your using a ‘paid’ ball, and the winds changed.

    Do what most do........take notes!

    Another "Tour Legend" heard from LOL.  Doctorlarry's response says it all.

    couldn't give a flying ?

    And besides there are many top players on here that actually state that practise mode, regardless of what your playing is totally different to actual play!

    And another with buckets of advice, some just for the sake of it!

    Indeed it is. There's no VEM influence so you're just seeing normal deviations from equipment. The best practice is in the weekly unlimiteds.

    Calm down.

    Practice is NOT totally different than regular play.  It is some different.

    Practice is better than not practicing - it does not replace regular play but augments it.

    No one is forced to practice - why do you care?

    It is this players opinion that practice is a way for players to avoid accumulating the required rounds necessary for tiering up while still enjoying the game.

     

    LOL

    I have seen nothing to that effect, Don.

    Perhaps you could be more specific?
