    Happens to me frequently, especially in the last few months. Affects both driver and irons. I just ignore it as it doesn’t affect actual distance.

    I've seen it on both driver and 3W (the clubs on which I have apparel distance bonuses).  It's been that way forever and has never been fixed.  Not sure if it's just a display glitch (displaying the wrong numbers) or if the distances actually vary.  Distances on driver and 3W are not super-precise, so it's hard to tell.

    Only driver. Seen it. Wondered why. No effect on actual distance. Ignored it. 

    Happens to my 3 wood also.

    I play a cheap no distance WGT-BES ball. With no apparel on my driver goes 291, with apparel on it goes 309. 3wood with no apparel on goes 250 and with apparel on it will go 266. I know full well if I do not get all that sizable extra distance!  A mysterious glitch indeed and maybe it does not work the same for everyone depending on clubs and balls played but I am saying the way the game plays for me if it shows less distance than what I should have then that is the distance it plays. Why isn't it ever more than it should be always less? lol

    Well being a glitch magnet like I am . I'm happy to see a glitch that has not effected me . Yet .

    Until last night . Last night All I did was change from Loudmouth Skull Pants to Common Skeleton Pants .

    Went and played a couple coin rounds . I didn't notice anything until the last ( 3rd ) hole . When I noticed my 9 iron displayed 141 yards . . Default 135 yards , w/apparel 145 yards . Always . So I went back to the changing room and put my Skull pants back on . Went and played a round . 9 iron back at 145 yards .

    Changing apparel should not have any effect on the abilities . Never has before . So it might not have been the pants . I changed back to the Common Skeleton Pants this morning . Display back to 145 yards . So it wasn't the pants . Just a display glitch .

    Now I know .
