    Here's a new one for me .

      Everyday this week . Or I suppose since the update . I have been in the middle of a round and suddenly my balls change to starters . No warning , no prompt , no offer to purchase a new set of my L 71 Nike's for $4.50 . Just BAM starters . What is going on here . There is no way I can keep track . ( or can I ) ? Well I shouldn't have to . You have spoiled me . So how do we fix this ?

    • I may be late on this, but was just killing time using the Lexus ball on the CTTH sweeps and when it was used up, I got this pop-up, which I think is a nice addition.

    I have gotten this pop-up a few times in the past week or two. Not sure how it  works with my normal balls, though, because whenever I did get it, I was using one of those promo/free balls (ctth sweeps, etc).

    Oh, I have no idea how to photo shop :-)

    I video everything when I'm on WGT, so maybe I can a video clip of it.

    I tried last night to see if I could get that pop-up to show by using the St Andrews promo ball. I did many CTTH, 3 - 9 hole stroke play, and 2 par 3 - 9 hole rounds, and still have 1/2 the ball life. I am curious if the pop-up shows when using a good ball, and you run out during play.

    Just DQ them, then they might just learn

    Or, give them the option to either continue with the free ball or forfeit  the game. Hopefully this option might reduce the whiny posts.

    I got that pop u when using a promotional ball, but after choosing the 'starters' my screen froze.

    Had to X-out

    Besides the new "last shot, buy balls" pop-up coming prematurly, the well-known "last ball" message is still there...

    ... with some changes:

    - it's bigger than before,
    - it doesn't disappear by itself after some seconds,
    - it disappears when the meter is risen, and it re-appears when it's let go without a shot,
    - when re-appearing, it's broken, as you see in the pic.

    I didn't take a shot, so I don't know if it re-appears on the next shot(?)

    One problem when provoking to get it is, you must use a single ball from your inventory which is on sale in the Pro Shop. Otherways, the "Buy Now" button wouldn't work, thus the program will not show the pic. I've been using the "Bandon Dunes" ball.
