    Something that has become increasingly more often is the wind direction at the Tee and Green are completely different.

    For example I'll see a 9-11 cross wind on the tee, maybe a SLIGHT headwind factor blowing towards 3:00.  I don't have a reverse camera to check the wind on the green, and my shot will come up way short, because the wind is now a 9-11 headwind blowing to 5:30.  

    The frustrating part is that you take the time to get your aim, your distance right only to have an entirely different wind at the green, which obviously changes your aim point and distance.

    This has been occurring at an increasing rate, and maybe WGT can give us what the wind is doing on the green, and not what it's doing on the tee...or maybe more camera options so we can see little things like a wind direction change from address to the target?

    I have never noticed this happening.  What frequently happens it the wind direction changes from your tee shot to your approach because you are hitting on different angle.  But what the wind shows while standing on the tee is the wind that will impact that shot.  Occasionally reverse camera views will show something slightly different because those camera angles are not always the same.

    I have encountered what the OP is describing much more frequently (mobile platform). I have had wind direction change a full 90 degrees from the time of the shot to the ball landing. This occurs on all shots, especially approach shots. It’s as though the wind has been randomized, maybe it’s blowing maybe it’s not, maybe it gusts, maybe it swirls. Hard to determine.

    Exactly

    You are absolutely correct. So annoying...

    You want a realistic game, and you complain when it does. Wind varies at different location, and that’s why it’s reads different at Tee and greens sometimes.

    Yeah right...now explain why it does it on a 180 yd par 3 straight.

    I have literally never seen it happen on any shot.  Not once in many, many, many, many rounds.

    Wind is relative to the direction the camera is pointed. After you take a shot, the game can switch to different cameras as the ball travels through the air. These camera angles are not always the same as the one that is directly behind the tee. For example, if you are playing a hole that has a dogleg right, the camera it switches to could be 90 degrees turned to the right so its facing the hole. For some holes it will switch to a camera on the opposite side of the green to watch the approach, which could be 180 degrees from where you were hitting. Hope this better explains this. 

    Best,

    Not quite. If you have a certain 12 wind aiming at 3 o'clock and change into the back camera, the back camera should show 9 o'clock. If you have a 12 wind at 4 o'clock from the front camera when you change to the back, you should see a nice 8 o'clock. This is not the issue and no problem at all. The problem is when u set up your shot for a side or a bit tail wind and all of a sudden (after your stroke) you realize that the wind was into.
