Not true at all...or they fixed already.  

 

I just had legitimate disconnection.  the internet dropped to my entire house.  Mt computer...my wifi...everything.  Forfeited out with a bogey.

 

Was able to match immediately.

I'm thinking that the Big Topper could be the only way to reach the 2nd fairway on 9

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.

I played 5 with EM 8 w 3 top all left, no curl, just a little over power. Aimed middle of that bunker. Ended up good short of the rough, more towards the hole and was able to reach w G8 no overpower, 1.5 backspin, stopped 2 yds from the hole.

You can easily reach the second fairway on 5 with a snowglobe and Apo 4.

Bout to kick off my masters qualifier with my apo and globes. If I find any shortcuts I’ll naturally share the wealth. I see a lot of -9’s and Raven in the lead with a -13.

I'm getting a "no one available" response after my first forfeit. This came on the 4th hole too.

Ooh, already made a mistake on the first one. Perfect berserk range with no overpower and I did max curl which was wayyyy too much.

Would you believe I missed my eagle putt! Was on the left of hole from tee, had to putt over a small berm, and couldn't see I lined up on the edge. Hit a great shot and missed.
What a way to start!

What's everybody doing on #8, driving over the right bunker with Berzerker/SG to reach the fairway?

Alt is stuck in tour2 with a whole 1k coin, needless to say it's not playing in no dang tournament this week, won't get to play a freakin tournament till it starts treating me better. Matter in fact that acct is shelved, get irritated and messes my play up on both accts.

Main I'm at 7 holes finished, -8 and on the bubble, bag remaining holes and hopefully a better start tomorrow

I can’t even play. No opponents.

Give me a break PD, I don’t have hours on end to keep refreshing this, and it’s a pain because I record the rounds.

Have thought about this, otherwise 8 is all about getting round the corner with a strong tailwind.
Will have a go at it tomorrow for sure.

These updates are going over like a turd in a punch bowl. It was already damn near impossible to get a live player in masters before this stupid update. Now you just can’t play at all.

So this is officially a practice round, found out you can drive the green on #3. Hit it in the water right by the hole. 2nd one I played more curl and clipped rough but it was still an easy approach. Forfeited the hole, and now I can’t play.
