    So yeah, playing the Tie-Dye Showdown, and starting holes 7-9, I hit the cancel button before an opponent was selected. I was given +1 on all 3 holes. Never started the match. I know this is wrong because the cancel button disappears when opponent is selected.

    THEN, on the last 3 holes, my opponent forfeited before the first swing, AND THE ROUND ENDED WITH ME GETTING +1 ON ALL 3 HOLES BECAUSE HE FORFEITED.

    So I got a +6 on my score for 6 holes I didn't get to play. I'm all for punishing people for quitting rounds or bad behavior, but I did nothing wrong here, didn't violate any rules, didn't time out anything. 

    I love the snot out of this game, but this kind or BS ruins it.

    Reply and trying to keep it short...

    Your cancel collided with an opponent being selected. A glitch. Computers aren't perfect, and the internet has lag. If you press the cancel button, the risk is on you that it will cancel out correctly.

    Your opponent forfeiting and hosing your game is something that plagued me around 4 showdowns ago. It happened because my game froze and/or error messages were thrown and I responded by leaving the round and trying to re-enter. Did not work, and rounds were given +3. I then resolved myself, the next time an opponent forfeited, to just sit and wait - do NOTHING. And that worked. And has continued to work through the last 3 showdowns I've played.

    If you freeze up and suspect your opponent did something naughty, or if you get a message stating something's wrong - do NOTHING. I know it feels like forever, but just wait. Eventually you will get an in-game pop-up that you can continue without the opponent. Through multiple elimination and final rounds, I've had probably 10 or more rage-quits and/or straight up forfeits, and have not had anything bad happen at all. 100% problem solved - so far, and YMMV.

    On the same showdown Final, my opponent resigned after hole one, don't know why but it cost me +2 shots for the first three. decided to play on. At the start of the last three my opponent cancelled before we started and I lost all last three holes. Sent a complaint to WGT and they replied almost immediately. They said they couldn't do anything about the scores but refunded my entry fee. When I went back to check my position, in fact my final 3 holes were open again. Not that it helped my place very much, but I got a free ball again and some cash. I was happy with their support, but there are things on the game that technically need addressing
