Just had a near heart attack on 15. I was already struggling to make the cut when the game froze with my ball on the green. I got the "lost connection match forfeited" message and was fully expecting a bogey but thankfully it's letting me replay the hole!
Phew

That beats lining up my tee shot perfectly on one, drawing back my finger while somehow letting go of the screen and hooking it in the bunker. Omg.

All that practice and 5 damn seconds later the round is toast.

And then parred the next one. Ahhh

Dang, so sorry SB! At least didn't happen during weekend round.

 

Quikc question for all.....reached second fairway on 9 and had Cat 5 with me. Played little BS, all side spin and full curl. Hit great shot on purpose, ended in the left rough. How do you play that shot? Slice?

I haven't been able to get that shot either. Honestly, I'd rather set myself up for a somewhat easy short iron chip that risk going into the rough or worse by trying to do a slice. But if you're willing to risk it, I think a super slice with backspin and full sidespin using landscape mode could work. I've only seen one person do that with a Sniper, but it has to be using landscape mode.

Looking to land below bunker, hit it great on the right with too much curl.
 
I see you are pitching further left.  I still only have APO3 so only use it when the curl is needed, cant wait for the accuracy to improve on it.   Will likely move aim slightly left and stick with TH5.

I know exactly what you are saying hornet. Here’s my drive using APO3. After shooting it, I’m with Klefticuf on this, I think today I will go more to the left with more curl. I think it will leave room for more margin of error with the APO3 accuracy.

Nice shot Kip. You guys might have persuaded me. Especially after getting a birdie today. Can def pitch it quite far left with the curl available with APO.

I've eagled this hole everytime (chipping from the front fringe) except my last play through this morning.

Nice. First practice I put it next to the hole so thought 'this one's a guaranteed eagle'. Then birdie in qualifier and 1 birdie in opening round too. Lol.

Got totally boned by the wind on this one on my guest acct. Rolled onto the front of the green and I had an earthquake shaking long putt that I hit great and missed. My opponent had straight left to right with a slight tail.
