    So there I was last night in the qualifying round...just finished 6 holes, 3 holes remaining, and I am comfortable with qualification at -2. Except according to WGT, I have now officially played all 9 qualifying holes and my score is now +1, which comes nowhere near making the cut. In short, I'm out.

    Has anyone else run into this issue before? I have already sent a message to the WGT gods but with only a couple of hours left before time runs out, I highly doubt this will get fixed. The loss of credits does not really bother me, but I would like to know that I can trust this game that the effort, time, and money I put into this game will not be treated so arbitrarily.

    Kinda sucks, because I actually enjoy the showdowns. Any help is appreciated.

    WGT has been good about refunding $$$ spent, but not about fixing the Showdown. This is a common issue that has been going on for as long as there has been Showdowns. There are a couple things you can do to try and prevent it. First is to never cancel once you have initiated a game, even if it looks like you don't have an opponent yet. You might find more tips on this issue here or here

    Good luck next time

    Thanks for the response and the tips. Yeah, I never cancel once the app starts looking for an opponent, I already learned that lesson lol. I have not been playing Showdowns for very long so I am not schooled in all the ways they can be frustrating, but this scoring glitch certainly is irritating.

    I started playing Northern Lights Showdown and after 3 holes and even par scorecard said 6 holes and plus 3. What's up? I feel ripped off . I don't know if I'll make the cut. sent 3 messages and no response.
