    Trees are supposed to stop balls and are to be avoided. This game has a weird relationship with trees. A single leaf can drop a ball or, even worse, lose a ball. Other times you go right through the trunk from point blank range as though it was a mirage. 

    WGT golf has many nuances and learning the "friendly" trees from the unfriendly is one of them. Usually they come into play from the tee box where we are trying to shorten a hole that we can get in trouble.

    Wondering why the developers decided on this tree scenario when other golf games provide a more realistic approach.  Here's a photo that happens to show my opponent completely stymied by a huge tree trunk, but like all of us, he simply ignored it and "poof" it never really existed and his shot landed on the green. The tree was there to knock his tee shot down, but then became a non-issue.

    If he was able to play that shot straight then that's crazy

    Yes, the shot at the flag was not impacted whatsoever by the tree. I saved the screenshot fully expecting that massive tree trunk not to interfere. Great artwork, poor game physics. 

    We both enjoyed a laugh about it after, so he saw exactly what I shared...  not just my interpretation.

    I needed to take a whizz and went behind one of the trees.  People were pointing and laughing...I guess this explains it.

    Funny, Scott!  I do think there are virtual "holes" or inconsistencies in every tree on the WGT courses. Where your ball was bouncing back, as we'd expect, my opponent was standing slightly left of your example. 

    There's an episode of Twilight Zone where this little girl rolls off her bed and disappears into the wall that comes to mind. I was about 6-7 yrs old when it aired and it scared the hell out of me.

    Wow... the game didn't recognize the flag had been removed?
