    Apologies if this has been covered on previous posts elsewhere, but is backspin gone in mobile when choosing wedge on the green?  It's been a bit since I noticed, but just now getting around to posting something on the forum.

    Thanks, King

    Good.  Shame that’s all that’s gone.  Here’s a tip - Use your putter!

    Another change to the mobile platform to appease the PC players as they have the mobile version forced upon them.

    WGT clearly want just one version to work on, instead of two versions , so mobile gets screwed with.

    Evidence of this is the latest update where suddenly the message screen from PC new version is added by accident to the mobile version rendering it unplayable in some cases.

    And as for people saying "learn to use your putter" I say "learn to green punch", its a perfectly valid shot in the game and was fine on mobile until Early Acess PC version showed up...

    Hence the words ( PUTTING GREEN )

    Head grounds keeper would break your nose.

    Perfectly legal shot in ‘real golf’

    Yep, and I've used it plenty of times.  If you do it right, there is little to no damage to the green anyway.  ;-)

    Yes it is a possible shot in "real golf" but how much backspin can you generate?

    Actually quite a bit but it still releases..  Although I haven't taken 40 yard swings in real life.... too afraid LOL
