    re: lip outs

    While a player's methods and calculations might be tried and true,

    what happens a lot with WGT is that the avatar's position varies in relation to the hole.

    Most desired is the straight on (perpendicular) angle like the letter 'T', but what happens is some shot avatar placements are skewed more left and down or to the right etc.

    This makes the info from the dots different then when if the avatar is centered, as mentioned by many WGT pros.

    They quote things like "the dots are moving...but it's a straight putt" or "the dots don't move but the ball will roll to the right" (due to the skewed angle of the avatar).

    I believe this is sometimes the reason why people aim & hit toward the wrong area.

    It's one thing knowing finite detail about something but being able to communicate that knowledge to others, something entirely different. Shame, because I believe in this instance it would have been very beneficial for many.

      Yes . And the same goes for many of our well intentioned amateur tutoralists . Lol . One who practices tutorialism . 

      Props for their efforts . 

      Here's an example 

      " As you can see the dots would suggest that one move the aimer 3/4 ths of the grid . As such . Oops . Obviously it was actually closer 5/8ths ." " Now moving on I will demonstrate the very difficult art of the downhill putt . "

     Phil's reference is to the GR8 Tekoma . Who spoke a different language called Tekoma . .

    Don't fret pdb, you're not alone with the putting.

    Just shot a 70 -- haven't carded a 70+ round in ages but today I didn't make anything. It was Olympic with is notoriously difficult for me, but it didn't matter if I dinged or played less break and off dinged, nothing went it and so I feel like putting is something I'll never master in this game.  Like one of the posts earlier, I actually feel like its getting worse Lol.  

    I've watched and read every conceivable tutorial and video.

    Not gonna happen for me I think, and that's ok I still enjoy the game even though its about as frustrating as real golf.  :)

      Probably . It works both ways . I see a start date of July 2016 . Even if that is incorrect . It is still funny for someone to biotch about a par score . 

      The 2016 start date is very possible . But it would be even more incredible seeing that you play full 18's . Not knowing that .

      9 holes = 72 

    18 holes = 72 

      WGT doubles the 9 hole rounds . So that it doesn't take 20 years to tier up . Only 10 years .

    I'm really not sure why all of that is relevant, but ok. 

    My putting woes are well documented.

    I thought we shared something in common, and posted in your thead about it where I shot par because I missed just about everything.
