    I've noticed that when the first person to finish in the group takes a "gimmi" put instead of finishing the hole manually, the server's break and nobody is able to finish the game.



    1v1: we're both within 3 feet, and Player 1 decides to take a "gimmi". Player 2 is unable to finish the game, due to a *loading* icon.

    Yes, they know about it.  Is happening a lot.  Most of the time, you can exit the app, come back right away, and get back to a “saved game” but you only get to do that once before being DQ’d.

    I propose a strike!  No one spend ANY money until WGT at least acknowledges there is a problem!

    update 1.96.1 is out on Android, desktop will soon follow with IOS likely being tomorrow. This addresses the coin room putting/gimme spinning issues and cc leaderboard prizes visual issue. Just as a note though, until both players are on 1.96.1 the coin room issue may still occur. So until we are mandatory with the update, it's possible you will see the issue




    Days late and many dollars short, but I hope this really does fix the gimme glitch (without breaking something else!).

    I thought this was just my device, but this is happening all the time and lots of people I’ve played have the same issue. Sometimes it clears and has taken over 8 minutes but it normally means someone has to end the game. It is bloody annoying.

    WGT. This needs sorting out. It’s been going on for weeks.

    I sent a message and here is the reply

    Thank you for your message. We are receiving similar reports regarding the game freezing on Gimme Putts for multiplayer games, such as Skins, Matchplay, and Coin Room rounds. Our Q/A team is working on this issue and we hope to have this resolved with the next update. You may want to try playing other game types such as Single Player Strokeplay or Tournaments for the time being until this is resolved. I apologize for the inconvenience.
    Best Regards,
