    Played the first three holes of the elimination round, and parred all three. I was given three bogeys. Played the second three holes, and scored par, par, birdie. I was then informed that I had played all of the holes in the elimination round. I had played 6 out of 9 that were scored incorrectly, and I ended up +2. Anyone else have an issue similar to this?

    Sadly this happens every showdown , plenty been said already , if you feel you have been treated unfairly , best send an email to members@worldgolftour.com and ask for your entry fee back. 
     All the best

    Hi all

    I have a question.How is it possible for a player to forfeit on the last hole of a showdown round,and not allow you to play your final putt for birdie,and thereby being penalized and given a bogey,slipping down the leaderboard,whereas I could have moved up 2 places on the leaderboard,losing valuable prizes?It seems to be a common occurance,which I feel needs to be addressed by WGT

    Greetings

    Andreas

    You are correct Andreas . WGT are fully aware of this issue , it happened again to me this time , I wasn’t able to continue and I too was knocked out of the leaderboard position , despite doing what has previously been advised in these forums . The responses from WGT , that I received , was a reimbursement of entry fee , and a message that they were looking into the matter further and were  hoping to soon have it resolved. Watch this space !!

    Very sorry to hear these situations are still happening.   I had a guy forfeit on the last hole of our round while we were still in the fairway.  I got to finish out.  I also had a guy forfeit before we even teed off.  I got to play all three of those holes alone.

    It’s really not fair that some can continue the round (like me) and some cannot (like BB and Andreas).

    I would  guess that the OP may have quit the app (or at least moved away from the showdown) after WGT matched him up with someone for holes 1-3 but before the matchup was visible to the OP.  He thought he had no match yet, but he did.  That’s how he would get  the bogeys.  Then, his 3 pars were actually holes 4-6 and then he also played 7-9, thinking he had only played two sets, not 3.

      AD . That is what is supposed to happen . If the opponent did not make all efforts to remain in the game .

      That is true for the players that have been unintended and unfairly forfeited .

      Which had been happening to me in every showdown I played in .Been receiving forfeits for doing nothing but waiting for the opponent to stop screwing around .

      Member Services assuring me that wasn't supposed to happen and they were frantically working on resolving this .

      I have to believe they were speaking the truth .

      There are impatient people that don't let the program run its course . They will receive deserved forfeits .

      In the Beach Bum Showdown . My opponent left early . His fault . He got forfeited . But I , for the 1st time was able to play the 3 holes solo .

      This was a GR8 improvement for me .And I had no false forfeits the rest of the event .

      If the number of reported false forfeits is reduced or eliminated in this Beach Bum . Then they really have made some progress .

      Lets hope so .
