As for the putting, the abrupt breaks (just before it gets near the hole) are a little weird but Im hoping that too is just a bug.
This started to happen when those New Putting Arrows came in.
Yes. Im hoping as Im sure many other players may be, that over the next few days perhaps week programmers will clean up some of the glitches.
Thinking about it, how can we not have bugs with all the new features. When I think back on how basic this game was compared to NOW. Wow. A LOT has changed over the years. For the most part, good changes though.
