    Robert1893:

    Individuals are prone to ascribe their own successes to internal factors (in this case. skill or ability) and failures to external factors (for example, the game caused the bad shot).

    Conversely, with respect to others (especially those in an out-group to us), individuals are prone to ascribe their successes to external factors (they got lucky or got a good bounce) and failures to internal factors (they're really not a good player).

     

    So, basically, what you are saying is my bad shots are really my own fault, and not the Vemlins.

    Interesting point of view but, obviously, only an opinion. I still find it hard to believe that my poor play could be my fault.

    It is hard to swallow . And it may not be the case .

    IN THIS THREAD BEFORE MY COMMENT . There was no one blaming the game .

    And I have seen less of it than anytime I can remember .

    Furthermore . This game is so precise . During game play there is no other factors to consider .

    Your own math . Your ability to know your equipment . The ability to counter the wind and elevation variants . Your own timing .

    If your " sweetspot " is small one has to be more precise .

    There isn't anymore to it .

    Other than the occasional WTF 40 yard shank that came out of nowhere .

    If you are able to check all YOUR boxes . Then it is all you . The game allows one to play within their own limits .

    Limits that could be hindered by many outside factors the game itself has no influence on .

    Cheers.

    Fair enough.  There's always a need for different opinions, we have to keep the lawyers in work ;-)  I certainly believe if you read it, it was very carefully :-)

    I’ve watched a number of your instructional videos and spotted the law encyclopaedias behind you.

     

    It makes me laugh how people think the WGT developers are out to ruin their round 😂 The simple fact is that when all is said and done it’s a game. I watch all the live series streams and also a lot of great players YouTube videos, it doesn’t matter how consistent the best players are (top 20), every so often they’re going to be 30ft from the hole on approach, I never see these players blaming the game, more likely to either blame themselves or their maths. Maybe they’re had a brain fart and hit an approach shot from the tee on a par 3 and fallen wayyyy short because they’ve accidentally calculated their shot as if it was fairway distance. I know I’ve been guilty of that. Or hit the wrong club, which we’ve all done. A few weeks ago I hit an approach, perfect distance, pin high but 24ft way from where I was expecting it. Watched it back (nvidia replay) turns out I aimed with the wind instead of against it 😂 completely my own fault. A lot of what the game could be blamed for is lack of focus on the players part. 

    take pebble #3, I’ve messed that hole up badly a few times by not paying attention and calculating the shot with 11ft elevation when it’s 11inches 😂

     

    I don’t mind having bad rounds as it spurs me on to focus more and up my game.

    I did know Yiannis is a lawyer, that was kind of the point.

    I've done all the things you mention on numerous occasions and I agree with the thrust of what you say.  One thing though, that tee shot is going wayyyy long :-)

    Not yet, but they're working on it.
