    I have had many quit and it just lets me play the other holes, with my score, happened a few times

    Yes.  I also have had players quit and the game then just continues for me so I get to post the rest of the scores.

    That's one of the mysteries of life.  It sometimes lets you finish and sometimes it doesn't.  It's a crap shoot as to what happens.  Been like that since day 1 of the showdowns.

      Apparently the fix is easier said than done . Or it would be fixed .

      The game is supposed to allow you to play on and finish the round .

      This has always been the case in WGT multiplayer Stroke Play . All other opponents can leave the game . But allows you to continue .

      The coin rooms and ShowDowns . Are like mini preview /trailers/samples of real Stroke Play . And are played with some of the stroke format . Only the only things that count are who won the hole and the round and how many coins .

      There are glitches that occur that seem to cause one a forfeit for 3 holes . Showing bogeys for 3 holes .

      WGT will make good on those that report errors like this happening .

    Yes it's very annoying.  Seems the earlier post was right ... sometimes it lets you finish, and sometimes it doesn't.  I played in Showdown today and got to last hole ... birdie putt from 6 feet.  Other player messed up and all too predictably (and rudely) forfeit.  Game immediately froze up and offered me the "cancel or retry" option.  After several unsuccessful retry attempts .. staying well clear of the "cancel"  ...the game just automatically forfeit my play.  So a bogey on the last hole when I was 6 feet for birdie!! Thankfully, my eagle on 7th was left untouched.  The moral here perhaps is NOT to forfeit just because you have messed up your own game.  Have the courtesy to let your opponent complete their game.

      Round 1 of the current BeachBum Showdown . First holes 1 - 3 a couple hours ago .

      My load rendering is now down to 30 to 45 seconds . Most players know enough to wait . ( It's less than a shot clock )

      My 1st opponent was too impatient . When I got to the tee . It said he has forfeited . And allowed me to play holes 1 - 3 solo . It was a first for me .

      This is what member services had told me was supposed to happen . And it did . Looks like they really have tightened things up .

      Well done .

    The trouble is WGT don’t sort the problem . Even when contact is made with WGT , only a refund of showdown entry fee , at best is given , if you miss the cut, .

    the only thing I try and do is chat nicely with oppo in the hopes they don’t forfeit on you , especially if you tell them how important it is that we both finish the match.

    Maybe another option is to tackle the cause of the problem.  It's too easy for some to hide behind their gaming name.  Proves almost irresistible for too many to behave badly.  WGT could come up with a way to warn players who have been reported more than a few times.  I believe under the older format there was a coloured dot system of some kind?  Not sure.  But it would certainly make playing the game much more enjoyable.

    P.S. I have since come across a part solution suggested by Mythanatos a long long time ago it seems - shutting down the App and doing a restart when confronted by the "cancel/retry" buttons.  Will give that a try next time this happens ... as it inevitably will ... probably tomorrow!
