     There is a glitch that I and others have reported . That on certain ( many ) shots , the flag stick is invisible ( hidden from view ) . Making it so you don't even know where the hole is . Therefore if you move the marker and do not remember where it started from . You could end up 50 or 100 yds. away from the hole . Seriously . 
      My replay shows a shot in a stroke round . As I watched the ball travel , I didn't have any idea where the hole was . Then the ball stopped and bounced back a couple of inches . Then I saw the " HIT THE FLAG STICK " . I knew then what had happened . 
      When I reviewed the replay the flag stick was visible . The closest views to what I saw during the actual shot are cameras 4 & 5 . ( btw now camera 5 gives me the white screen ).

      Is this happening to many of you or any of you also ?

      Again . In the replay the flag stick is visible . In the actual shot . it was not .

    Yes I get the invisible flag(s) from time to time.. seems to happen mostly on Merion for me.. what I do know also is that when it happens to me, it is happening to others at the same time, which indicates it is not a problem with my browser / flash version / hardware geometry..

    One time in a skins game everyone confirmed at the same time when the flag had disappeared.. if it were just a machine / browser / hardware fault, then we wouldn't all be seeing no flag from different parts of the world at the same time..

    Dear Paul,

    The flagstick issue is a known issue and seems to occur only with Country Club flags. We are working to correct the issue, however, I would suggest not using the custom flags for the time being. Thank you for your patience.

    Sincerely,

    Ok Guys here is what I did. I set up a tourny . "NOSEEUM" I changed flag from default to American football. I played one hole and low and behold the flag was there!!!

    So when you are setting up a tourny keep that in mind. I will go back to Maxthon and try it again.

      This would suggest that it is not isolated to CC tourneys

    I have tried Maxthon, google chrome. comodo dragon ice, O something. There are  no flags in any of them . So now what?

      And this , that it is not just a Maxthon issue .
