I've really enjoyed playing my starting rounds and have ventured into the tournaments. That is where I have a problem. I started to play the St. Andrews 9H Stroke play. It was shown to have light wind and standasrd greens. When I started up, the wind was a gale, blowing out towards the hole at 28-32mph! That's LIGHT??? I lost a ball in the water. I've never hit one 317 yards before.
Then the greens, which was advertised at "moderate." My first putt went nowhere. I was 9 feet away, downhill, set it up to about an 8 on the scale. The ball went 4 feet. WTF? I looked up and the green speed was actually "very slow." I don't know why you would state that a tournament was set up one way, then do it another. I played 4 more holes, figuring out how to manipulate the wind on my drives and aproaches. When I missed a 4 foot putt for a Birdie, I quit. I had 3 putt all the other holes.
What's up with this? Is this just a "whoops" moment on WGT's part, or do you do this to make us buy more balls and stick to the single matches and leave the contests for the higher ranked players? I know that's a grasping assumption, but this has been the most frustrating 2 hours I've had in a while. I don't come here for frustration!
Up to tonight, I've really enjoyed the game. I hope to again soon.
