I read everything these forums say about putting . I have watched some of the best/popular tutorials . I struggled severely for most of my 10 years here .
One thing was I wasn't born with that " golfing feel for the break " That many are lucky enough to have from the start . Even with some IRL golf experience 40 years ago . Then 5 years of TW PC ver. ??? Then I found WGT .
The 73,372 recorded putts is probably 1/3 rd of the real total . With non ranked rounds . And years and years of 8.5 hole rounds that ended in disconnects .
Basically because of my putting I am stuck a Legend forever . Even though for the last year I have been playing coin rounds . Over 400 . My putting has improved dramatically .
I now have some of that feel for the break . I do a half and halfer , move the aimer less then I should , then barely miss the ding on the high side . This is much more successful for me .
For most faster greens I still calculate . My calcs are an old method . That works for me . Champ / by 1.45 , Tourney / by 1.35 Very fast / by 1.25 Fast / by 1.05 . If I calculated at all . The putter pal aimer bar ( or whatever it is called ) is fairly accurate . Of course it's a little different for each green speed . And doesn't convert to my preferred meter most of the time .
Since I no longer can use the avatar increments . I never saw a good explanation for calculating with %'s .
Too bad the stats can't be viewed in the Coin rooms . So I could see my improvement . No matter .
Even with the fun and the seemingly success with the coins . I still haven't veered back to the TL track . Just not important anymore .
In 2016 I could no longer use hard wire , high speed , ethernet , internet . Because of demographics . I live in a known dead WiFi area of the desert .
That was the end of quality WGT PC play for me .
I have the TMobile built in WiFi on my tablet . That feeds my WiFi/Bluetooth adapter on my PC . The TMobile sucks for WGT . It won't work .
So I use the HughesNet Satellite WiFi for WGT . It barely loads it up .
I have to walk outside with my phone if I want any download to get done within a couple minutes .
My PC is worse . But I ain't taking it outside lol . But going outside only improves it slightly anyway .
That has a lot to do with performance and response and smoothness and consistency . In fact it is not even worth it .
But the coins are fun . And good practice . And good experience .This was the final for the week ending 7.25 . That's with winning only 9,880 coins per round . 10,000 entry then 9,880 with 5/5 set bonus .
So I'm having fun anyway .
