I see I've drawn quite a bit of attention...will any of you address the question?
I'll take a shot at it.
It would be helpful if you mentioned the platform that you're playing on (different devices have different issues). Since you joined WGT in 2010, it's probably safe to assume you're on PC.
Having spent thousands of dollars, and hundreds of
hours mapping clubs and balls for distance and windage...and constantly
losing to rank amateurs in coin rooms...
There are likely algorithms in the game that try to level the playing field a bit in H2H games, but I think there's a bit more going on here.
With all due respect, maybe you're just not very good at this game. I'm not trying to be insulting, but I've mapped my clubs and spent far less than "hundreds of
hours" doing so, and looking at our stats I have better #'s than you do.
Don't get me wrong: you're a solid player that gets good scores, and could give me a run for my money, but compare your stats to mine... in every single meaningful stat, my stats are slightly better than yours, and I feel that I still have a lot of room for improvement. Don't forget to take into account that you have been playing this game for 12 years and have over 6,400 ranked rounds. Contrast that to me, 2.5 years and less than 1,100 ranked rounds. I have only 1/5th the experience with this game that you have.
I am certainly not here to brag - I am far from the best player around. And I'm not here to belittle you. But not everyone can be fantastically good at this (or any other) game. Maybe (like most players, including me) you're just not suited to reach the upper echelons of performance at this game, and you just need to be content enjoying the game at your skill level. I have better stats, and I don't expect to win every time.
I don't win every coin game. I don't pull off every shot perfectly. I don't expect that I'll ever compete with the top players in this game. Despite all that, I enjoy the game within my own skill level. And when I lose or have a shot play out poorly, 99% of the time I know that I did something wrong - I don't blame the game.
Watch the top players of the game... they don't execute every shot perfectly (but they nearly always recover from a bad shot). Dinging is overrated, if you ask me. It was easy to ding with the old Flash game, even using the rock, but sometimes seems nearly impossible with the "new" game. The top players get far less than 100% dings and still do incredibly well. As a much lesser player, I've achieved my performance level getting no more than 30% dings. I've learned to not even try to ding most of the time. I intentionally ding on the high side of putts and into the wind with shots. It works for me.
Perhaps you just need to learn to be content with how well you do with the game and leave it at that.
