    I’ve just joined WGT and I must say that there are a few things I don’t like. I played a second shot the green. The screen tells me I’ve hit 180 yards and I’m 1 yard from the hole. When I get to the green my ball is sixteen feet from the hole. How come one section tells me 1 yard and another give 5 yards? At times the shot slide sticks and the ball moves forward 1 yard and I’ve given a stoke that I didn’t play. Other times I’m told I’ve hit the perfect shot to the green only to find that the ball is well short and in a bunker. Are these common faults?

    What I think you are doing is misinterpreting the information. Say the flag is 181 yrds away. You hit a shot 180yrds. You also have to take into account how far left and right you are. So you may be 1 yard short but 4 yards wide making a total of 5 yards to the hole.

    This is a common problem. If you see the meter start to stutter do not click and the swing meter will just go through like a practice swing and not charge you a stroke.

    A 'perfect' shot just means that you hit right on the line. It does not mean that you set the shot up properly.

    Happy hitting

    no snake , maybe people should do like you do, play as pro forever, then no problem not to spend any $$ , your day will come just like most of us here, but I dought it, you'll just post a bad couple of games on here so you won't have to spend any $$ on here. but I guess that's a great hing to do. since wgt doesn't have any answers for any of us, if I could, or maybe I can, just change my profile and e- mail, and then I wont worry about spending $$ and losing it all thr time

    Thanks chaps for the good advice, as for bad comments, well that’s just water of a duck’s back. If they are not happy then they know where the delete button is.

     

    I’ve now worked my way up to Pro, but still getting used to the clubs and what they can do.
