Sounds like a bug. I assume they wanted to allow a match but maybe you're just supposed to play replays from there on out (being blocked from playing entirely doesn't make sense).

Same here, I forfeited the 1st and now can't play the 2nd.

 

I've reported it but I suspect it's an anti-forfeiters rule that's either bugged or there's a time limit before they open you up again ?

 

Will try again each hour to see when it comes back and then just miss putts instead of forfeiting. 

 

Happy to be blocked if that is the reason.

 

 

This happened a long long long time .

Of course I do the losing bundle all the time and this one tourney, I forfeited a hole and I couldn't find an opponent forever.

I too thought it was some type of anti cheat but it wasn't.

I have to go find that thread. I do hope it is some type of anti cheat though.

ah, OK, so it effects you if you forfeit or are forfeited against. Again, I've not got a problem if they want to outlaw forfeits in tournaments completely, great. but why then leave the button there ?

Also thats punishing the person who has been forfeited against who has done nothing wrong.

Somebody comment on GCE made the most sense....Once you forfeit you only get replays after that. Since its so early, there's no replays yet so no opponents for right now.

I doubt it, there should be plenty of replays available by now

Of course there is but still it takes PD time to implement the replays to the tournaments.

Its just a theory that makes the most sense to me so far.

Shot -13 in Pro in my alt. 

Experimenting in my main account, in expert, and the second fairway is reachable on hole 3 with Apo 4 and besereker, max overpower and right curl. Need to aim a tad more right on the drive though. Ended up int he left rough, pass that bunker.

Couple of observations from first practice (Expert).

 

Hole 5

Berserker gave a 11.4mph NW wind.   Full top and left spin with EM8.  3/4 left swaz.   Line middle right of bunker.    Ball skipped into rough on right hand side of fairway strip.   Will move aim line a little left tomorrow.   Although did not matter as Nirvana could reach from where I was anyway (2nd shot wind is helping).

 

Which got me thinking......could take a more direct route towards the green with drive?  Or at least dont push drive line out too far right.

If you can reach green from the rough, and the left hand side is closer to green, then being on the left in the rough is no problem.

 

Hole 9

Berserker was 11.3mph N and Globe was 13.2mph N.     Went with Berserker just to see if it would reach second fairway with the tailwind.  Bit daft as was well short.   If anyone attempts this with a Globe please let me know if it reached.   I think the key shot could well be the short iron/wedge for eagle (if Globes do not reach fairway).   Left mine on the edge today.

 

The rest are pretty straightforward I think.

10 under pro and 11 under rookie on Alt account.  12 - 13 under on both should be attainable after 1st play through.

After reading all of your posts, I made some ******************py putts throughout my round until the 9th hole, then forfeited that one.

So, this is Pro, Expert, Masters? And the Red dot is where you were aiming or landed?

Forfeited starting on 5 and had no problems getting replays.

Also pretty annoyed they removed the tree(s) on holes 5 and 8. PD really wants to encourage long drive contests I guess. Makes a boring track more boring. Not a ton of extra shots out there except hio chances and longish hole outs.

Another person told me that if you forfeit during a tournament match you will be disqualified. I don't believe this, otherwise that rule should have been listed.
