    I had several occations when I hit the flag with extremely low speed, and almost direct in front. When the ball after hitting the flag comes to rest only a few inches from the hole it would have been in the hole on a real course. I saved a few examples to show it.

    My suggestion is that you add a speed test when hitting the flag to allow the very low speed to go in.

    Yes, your 3. from 06. feb would absolutely have gone in on a real course.

    The 2 others, 23. jan and 30. jan was jumping, not rolling. The speed was a bit to high to decide what would have happened on a real course. But they were very nice shots. I don,'t say they wouldn't gone in, but I'm uncertain about those 2.

    I just hit the pin on a soft 13 yard chip on 9. It kicked away. I've had balls bounce off the pin playing real golf, but also we've seen, especially on TV, balls that are rolling rather fast hit the stick and go in.  Perhaps the suggestion to increase the ball speed somewhat would give us that satisfaction of sinking a shot and a perfect approach.

    Yes, on long shots the ball will bounce off, but on short chips the chance in much better.  Sometimes the pin stops a fast rolling ball and it drops in instead of hopping over the hole. 

    On another subject, yes we all want more holes, and a true 18 for the course we play, but adding new pin locations on the green is the best way to add variety.

     And different wind direction and speed.
