Sir, I agree with you in general, but if you hit the ball exactly on the dingy, allowing for the wind speed and direction and aim correctly, the ball should not veer out of bounds. However, this happens fairly often. In real life golf, if this happens every time you hit the ball it would always land on the fairway. but this isn't possible. The only feasible conclusion one can be the built-in program WGT uses under the false notion to make the game more realistic. It's absolutely impossible to use math to accomplish this. The only useful thing this built in program is that it generates income for WGT. Now that I've said this I realize WGT will and does deny this false manipulation of the otherwise great game. I also I realize that some of you like yourself will support their denials because you are lucky enough to overcome the game's manipulation and seem to attack any one who has the courage to complain about the game's faults, as your post is doing. They obviously get away with their abuse only because its the only game in town. Their greed for money proves the adage that "the love for money in the root for most problems," (paraphrased).
