    Today the weekly tournament, this hole 3 par 3 suddenly became normal, no need to minus 10 yards, I hit 10 yards short of the green as a result, harder than playing Bingo...

    1.  this hole is severe DOWNHILL, not uphill

    2.  read former posts, full backspin also 10 yards long

    This is nothing to do with skill, its a program bug of WGT, I surprise you comment like this unless you have not played this hole.


      No one said it was up .

      Everyone has played it .

      We know it is a typo . Or mistake or error .

      We are all sharing information to be able to play the hole with as few strokes as possible .

      As WGT may never get around to correcting their error .

      You say

    full backspin also 10 yards long

      You didn't mention the wind .

      An experienced WGTer would be able to play it with any type of spin . And any type of wind . Once the proper elevation is known .

    And nobody has ever wondered that this is a computer program which you can change to your liking whenever you want? Which means that today 38 is good, tomorrow 68 and the day after tomorrow I change it to 83, as has been verified by players from LOS GOLFOS CUB. And this can be valid for many of the holes in the different courses. Is it VEM? I don't know, because my computer intelligence is very low, what if I know is that I am a NOTEBOOK player, and that in the same shots of the same distances and the same wind conditions, sometimes it works and other times, many, no.

    I wonder if we (collectively) could come up with some sort of rule that says what elevation to use with a tailwind, a headwind, and a sidewind.  Maybe that would explain why 38, 68, and 83 all work at different times.

    I just play the hole at a net 165 yds and that works about 60% of the time. However and I cannot account for it, if I use 165 yds in headwinds, I come up 4 - 5 yds long.

    According to Google Earth PRO the distance and elevation of the Champ, Master and CTTH tee's are all correct on the real course. 

    Maybe the hole was too easy for WGT so they added a "gremlin"

    I also fly 10yds past from the Champs but  not so the shorter tees.

    Perhaps the wind swirls down near the bottom ?

    Experienced this today as it was included in the Showdown elimination round. Cost me a lost ball and a triple bogey that - even after playing the remaining 8 holes in five under probably means I will wash out of the event.  Sad that since it is broken WGT can’t get it fixed.

    Hey Teppop,
    Thank you for your message. Unfortunately without being able to see these shots with the full course conditions surrounding them it is incredibly difficult to offer any real insight on why this may have happened.
