    Putting on this game is a JOKE.  47 ft. putt uphill 3 inches.  Use 45 and still goes by the hole 22 ft.  Unless you can hit the ball with 2-3 feet of the cup, it's a JOKE.

    Depends on the difficulty level of the green. If tournament take 80% of the length as guide, championship 75%. So the 47 + 3 uphill would be 50 ft, multiply times .8 and you want to hit about 40. Additionally, if you miss the 'ding' it can take something off the putt. This ratio doesn't work for shorter puts. A 6 ft put I need to hit 6 ft unless it's down-hill. And if severely down hill then you have to use even less than the 80% strength.

    Sounds like you were on at least tournament greens which are substantially faster than standard greens.

    If you hit it 22 ft past, that is the most likely reason.

    Afraid it's not the game this time.....!

    The game is still fun even if I putt 6 or 7 times.
