TGC Tour - Congratulations!
Congrats to @Joe_S (GROSS AND NET) winning the TGC 2019 FALL TOUR - Houston Open !
There are so many courses with "false" names that it's easy to confuse two courses!
Thanks for all your work to propose great courses in the society.
I was just so disappointed when I began my round that it ruined my game for the day!
Wow what a garbage course. What happened mthunt ? You guys been using Friendbombers for years. I quit on hole 4 when I hit my drive and as it flew I saw a crater the size of my home state of RI with no water filled into it.
At least they could have finished building it. They should have named it crater cove or something then it probably would have got mistaken for the Good version of Crater Cove though.
Someone published a bunch of junk with the names of famous courses. I knew this and was careful. I even played a few holes to make sure. I’m serious that I don’t know how I could have done this. It’s on me. Apologies.
Don't think you will show up until you complete your second round. At the moment the results page is not the same as the original TGC where you could see all the people who were sneaking up behind you but still had a round to complete.
Apologies if this has been asked and answered previously, I'm just getting back into sim golf as the weather starts to turn.
Has anybody had issues with the tee shot not registering with skytrak? Tried playing this Pebble beach course and could only get tee shots to register if I switched back to putter and then back to driver. It's like it is stuck in short game mode.
What version are you runnning? It will tell you in the title bar of the TGC console you use to launch the game. Make sure you are on latest 4.07 version. If you are not re-run the setup program and it will download and install the latest version. Pretty sure what you have described was fixed in the later version.
Oh man.... Watch out for #15. Putting for par and just missed.... Putt rolls off front edge of green. I putt back up.... It rolls back down! 😣 Two chips.... same thing!!!! Finally chip to Gimme range. From a putt for a 4....to a 9!!! Gaaaaah!
I finally gave up on SkyTrak fixing the driver ball speed issue and set up 5% boost on driver. Match that with all those downhill holes and my drive distances went way up this week. Tough greens kept the extra distance from helping on the scorecard but still a fun course.
I am not sure the exact percentage it is off which is why I tried waiting for a fix. I am consistently getting low-mid 160s with driver (169 highest I’ve seen so far) and mid 150s with 3 wood off the mat. From playing I know I have a large distance difference between those 2 shots (30-50 yards?) but I do not play often enough to know exactly how much.
That's kinda the point, you don't know if your Skytrak is wrong yet somehow you went straight for the max of 5%. LOL
The Skytrak data linked above shows less than 1% error in the low 150's. Clevited posted a similar Trackman comparison a while back showing something like 1%-2% error all the way from 160 - 180 mph. A buddy tested his against Trackman (hitting bay at range) and found a little over 1% in the low 160's (Skytrak was low).
So that's three direct Trackman tests to go from. They do show a trend of being a bit low but not really by all that much. A bigger concern might be the shot to shot variation which Clevited noted and my buddy found as well.
Also Clevited found his Skytrak was HIGHER than Trackman between something like 100-140 mph. I wonder how many Skytrak people use negative boost to correct for that! LOL
Does that muddy the water enough? LOL. Since I don't have a Skytrak I may have missed or forgotten other direct Trackman tests. Skytrak said a long time ago they had tests scheduled but I don't remember hearing any results.
