    While playing a 3-hole Showdown round, my opponent forfeited. The game put up an error message; clicking "retry" did nothing so I clicked "cancel". The game showed me as loading, and then without ever giving me a shot clock, said my time had expired. I reloaded the game and it also gave me a forfeit, with two bogeys. Not fair- I did not quit the round.

    It's a known bug/issue that has been going on forever since the very first day the showdown thing was born. The best is keep yourself away from it.

    every month same thing...

    yet again.

    do not hit cancel. cancel will give you the bogeys.

    close the app and restart it. you'll have to replay those three holes but you won't get the bogeys.

    Had this today. Wish it had happened on the 3 holes where I had a lost ball rather than the 3 where I had a 5 footer for -4.

    It just happened again, except this time my opponent forfeited on the first hole, before even taking a shot. I got a message that he forfeited and the game was over. I was declared winner (198 coins) and then given THREE BOGEYS without even playing the round! No retry-cancel option, no timeout, nothing! This is crap WGT or Topgolf: whoever's running this damn game!

    Same thing has just happened to me not once but twice. It really sucks WGT won't do anything to fix this and it means i am +6 and haven't even played any holes yet. Many times I have thought about stopping playing this game as there are so many inconsistences in the game as a whole not just the showdowns

      Everyone is right that this has been occurring since the beginning of the Showdowns .

      There are many errors that occur that will give one 3 bogeys for the round .

      The suggestion that one never clicks CANCEL is a good one . But there is an error message that won't RETRY . And you must click CANCEL . It won't cancel you . 

     

      They have also made it so if your opponent forfeits . You can continue solo to the end of the round .

      Sometimes no matter what you do . These error/glitches take you out . Then you get the bogeys .

      But if your opponent forfeits . Try to stay and continue solo .

      The fact is . They are aware of it . They are working very hard on it . It has improved over the last month .

      IDK if they will ever get all the bugs out . But they ARE working on it .

    close the app and restart it. .

      I'm not sure who came up with that one . It is very common amongst the newer players . It is not a good idea . And will likely cause 1 of the 2 opponents a forfeit .

      Please let the reconnect initiated by the system take its course .

      Or if your opponent is loading slow . Please just wait another 5 or 10 seconds for him to load .

      If you initiate a restart . This will cause the opponents already slow " LOADING : RENDERING OBJECTS " to restart and take even longer than it would have .

      Just wait it out . There is nothing you can do to improve the opponents process .

      Please refrain from restarting .

      I have played 650 coin games this year . And have been screen shotting the various errors in the process . To submit them for reimbursement of my entry fees . Also submitting the errors to help them with their trouble shooting of these glitches .

      I can tell you with certainty . That Just a little patience will help to solve some of these issues .

    EDIT : I am finding that once other players realize that it is not just about them . And restarting clean . With no regards to the fate of the opponent . Who was likely dealt a false forfeit .

      That there are measures they can take in the spirit of the game . To help insure that a complete round is played . Conscientiously .

      An old school approach for the GR8er good .

      Patience is one of them .
