Denn, i wanna see your point of view, just as i have wanted to see the point of view of every single individual who has come here over the years and complained about the VEM. But i can't...i just can't. Now this is just my opinion, but i've always believed that it is the VEM that makes this game what it it, At least it is to me. I've never understood why some people can't get it through their heads that if the VEM was taken out of this game, part of the realism of WGT would go with it.
Do you play golf in real life as i do? if not, then perhaps you'll never come to appreciate the VEM. If you do, then i would encourage you to think about it like this. In real life, i get VEMMED....a lot. I can't tell you the number of times i've hit a shot, thought i hit it good, only to end up left, right, too long, or too short. Now i thought i got it good. But what i actually did was allow the club to open or close at impact which resulted in my hooking or slicing it. Or i chose the wrong club for the yardage i had left to the green. Ive had the wind push my ball in a direction it shouldn't have because i hooked or sliced the shot that bad. I've been in the rough greenside looking to just pitch it on. All i had to do was just get under the ball, elevate it, and i was good to go. But i missed it...simply didn't make good contact on a shot that 95% of the time i can hit...but i didn't this time. All of the above scenarios happen to me all the time in real life. And the VEM brings all that to my game in cyberspace.
My WGT game is much better than my real life game. Aim to compesate for the wind is easier. I certainly hit more fairways. Most of the time, i'm close as far as club selection goes. My putting (such as it is) is better. I appreciate the VEM. I need it...because without it, this game could get real easy. It's the VEM that from time to time puts me in a situation where i really have to think about what i'm gonna do next.
I want to encourage you to embrace what the VEM brings to this game, because without it, i believe things would be drastically different...and not for the better.
