    LMAO. Now you're really going to go nuts when you find out what you're up against. Search the term, it's basically a way WGT makes things more difficult as you improve. It doesn't monkey with putting, though.  :-)

    Looks like I'm going to be getting a lot of practice out of bunkers for the next few months. Just tiered up to legend and now struggling to reach a lot of Par 4's!

     

    The long slog of learning how to shoot a good score when you can't even reach some par 4s.  Hell, #1 at Chambers will leave you basically a full wedge shot if you are into a high wind.

    try a 3W...if you are able to approach it, unless you are perfect with distance, you're rolling 13-15 yards down the hill.

    VEM stands for Very Easy Mapping, basically what you see is what you get. Numbers don’t lie ;-)

    What did I discover?  Those numbers in a real round couldn't be more different, but yet I go back into a practice round, and those numbers are dead on.

    That would be because in a real round, the game exerts an influence brought about by VEM. Understanding how that works is part of the fun.  :-)

    Also if he is a mobile player and has to a apparel that adds distance or spin to his irons then his mapping will be flawed. Apparel bonuses work in practice but not in tournament play. So if you are a mobile player and your apparel has bonuses for irons don’t use them when you map your clubs.

    All valid.  But I don’t use apparel except for a driver distance hat and glove.  The numbers I discovered after hitting 6-8 sleeves of balls should be close regardless of a practice round or a ranked round.

     

    should be but we also know it’s wgt
