It shouldn't be too difficult to get 100%, the swing motion probably just needs to click with you. I certainly don't nail it every time, I either don't pull back enough or linger too long at the too of the swing.

And it can be costly when playing the ball over a water hazard, and you needed 100% to make it to dry land lol


Had a go just now and got 100% more often than before so think i am getting the hang of it.

THe Par 3 courses are a real challenge  :)

I finished my three rounds of LBM and ended up -21 in total. I'm very happy with my finish from a personal level. Really struggled with the back 9 of the third round - pretty windy and wasn't hitting 100% power (ironically). Finished with a birdie though so all's well in the end :)

Hi all!

Spotted this so took it on and now signed up :)

Managed -38 on first course which was not 2 shots off the best!
A more lacklustre -19 on second course to give me -57 going into the desert!

Think top 2 now elude me, but 3rd is possible

Cheers guys, was fuming I didn't take te clubhouse lead on 1st course as had a 3 shot lead on last round!

Really struggled with first 9 holes on 2nd round with 15mph winds and never really recovered!

Looking forward to probably playing desert later today!

Not tried any of these yet, but I surprisingly like the game quite a bit.
Yeah, it's frustrating, but I think I can get the hang of it eventually.

Didn't realise you had it Grumps, good to see. They are up until the end of the month, give or take a few days. Will give me time to arrange a league and more events for a season.


15mph winds must have been brutal!! I have to do some drastic compensation in shot direction just with 10mph. You must have to aim at the adjacent fairway!!

Brilliant scores and welcome.

Fishy - you reckon we could try a turn-based game some time? Could be quite interesting seeing how we perform in front of a watching audience. Dealing with the breaks in play etc etc.

Has anyone found out if there are doubles/four ball (dunno the terms) games too??

I'll look into it JK ;)
There are other match types available. When you go to play a round (not an organised tournament or event) you should see match type options next to your character.

Nailed the 100% thing. I am now using a very different technique for full shots and "feel" shots.

-10 through two rounds of Castle Creek. Not quite in Ncfcrulz's league (welcome btw) but not bad.

There is a matchplay option. Warning though - I like to take my time  :21:

Same here. But that's mainly due to indecision

Finished the tour. Struggled in the Desert initially (ground was much firmer) but got the hang of it in the end.

Nailed the full swing i think, especially with irons. Still the odd wayward drive but ok. Short game and Putting still a bit clumsy but can hopefully improve before we start proper.

Loving the game. It's a challenge which TW never was

What went wrong?

Fishy and I played a turn-based game yesterday. Thought it was more tense. You don't get to build up rhythm as easily. And - if you're pitching twice - then you know you've hit shorter than your opponent which can prey on the mind.
