    Why do so many quit the game after one bad shot or forfeit on third hole when know they’re going to lose. I have this happen to me more than not and it’s frustrating and leaves bad taste in mouth. Most of the players doing this are the higher tier and low average players. So I’m guessing this helps your average some how, if so it needs to be fixed. My Dad and the service taught me to never quit, it’s bad and shouldn’t be rewarded. If indeed it’s rewarded should be changed now, a champion who forfeits and quits all the time? Nuts!

    Coin games have no effect on a player's average.

    I'm guessing the majority of players who forfeit when they're behind do so in order to save ball hits and/or to save time during sponsorships.

    Best thing to do is just accept the win (congratulations!) and move on to your next match.

    Why is it frustrating? You won. In what way are you harmed?

      That is the only downside .

      Not in the least . Coin games are not ranked . They only count coins.

    Dynofine:
    taught me to never quit, it’s bad and shouldn’t be rewarded.

      WGT has added " FORFEIT " options to the menu . Foreseeing that there are millions of reasons to not continue a round .

      Especially rounds with no statistical benefit .

      The " FORFEIT " option is only the polite and recommended way to exit a round . As it allows the players and the program to cycle through the " end of game " process .

      Many do not use the " FORFEIT " option . That is okay . They do not need to have a reason that anyone else approves of . To exit the game .

      I also agree that it can be wrong , rude , irritating . To exit a round early . But in formats that do not count . There is no more to say .

      In alt shot if the win goes to the team that had been ahead . Then it is all good .

      In coins if you get the win and the coins . Then it is all good .

      As I cherish each connection and multiplayer round because they are so hard for me to connect to . I could not fathom thinking of leaving a round early .

      But I have listened to many strong arguments validating many scenarios . And WGT knew enough to add the " FORFEIT " option to the menu .

      So get over it .

    Maybe some people play for reasons other than solely to get a win. Maybe they wish to enjoy some social interaction, maybe they hope to learn more about the game by watching their opponents, maybe all sorts of things. Maybe some people just find forfeiting rude and have an incomplete/unsatisfying experience when it happens to them.

    It could be argued that staying out of the coin rooms is the best way to avoid such disappointment of course.

    doesn’t matter what the word is, the problem is it messes with the game, it can freeze for 10 minutes and you can’t do a damn thing unless you forfeit/concede yourself­čĄĘ

    Even when they ‘concede’ right when you make your final putt with 2 putts to win when it is obvious they would lose much earlier on 1 hole matches.

    This wastes at least a couple of minutes on the 30 min sponsored matches. That’s when I find it to be melevelent. Forfeiting any other time doesn’t bother me at all.
