Guess I haven't played enough rounds as I don't believe I have ever experienced this "ball squirt". The only time I have a ball go offline and end up not where I thought I was aiming is because of wind.
There is a theory out there tat it might effect ppl with high handicaps & average scores more than the other end of the scale.

If u wanna really notice it watch for it on par 3s with little or no wind or wind going straight, if u execute a straight shot there is gud chance you will be thrown a few yards offline through no fault of ur own.

Low handicaps and scores - smurf, not high.

Smurf, every one of my par 3s I have designed I have never had the ball squirt in the designer. Is this a published problem?

no such thing as ball squirt. people are just paranoid and need an excuse. might have to start blaming my errant shots in real life on ball squirt.

The developers have said themselves on Twitch that it is in the game, the idea was to stop straight shooters.

Go educate yourself before making such ridiculous claims.

These people are not education worthy. Pure ignorance.

Opposite Baal squirt definitely exists. I notice more of that than the bad kind. Like a hook going straight etc.

Have to say I think that the complaints and tone of discussion is well out of proportion to the actual occurrence.

I wudn call it opposite ball squirt yeltz, its still jus ball squirt.

In my opinion if anyones noticing what you've described here more than ball squirt causin them to miss the target its because theyre miss hitting shots more than catching them right. Theyre jus getting lucky.

If that is the case, then the swing feedback is grossly inaccurate.....

My swing input is grossly inaccurate - that's for sure.

Again, I'll say the punishment for being offline with the swing should be more severe. The randomness of a ball missing 15 yards right when you've hit a dead straight shot is just annoying

Maybe there is a way this could happen if they somehow calibrate with controller while setting up.  A lot of games let me adjust gamma and screen size for it, kind of setting the game up for it's programming.  Let's calibrate our controllers so the game knows how good/accurate or crappy/old it is.  So that it can adjust how much variance it gives us.  Remove the squirt or make it much more minimal...(3-4 yards max) and make the swing more important.

Right now they can't do this because there are controllers out there that just don't give the feedback they are looking for in the game.  I'm sure that's one of the reasons for the squirt!

I for one thought it didn't exist. But as I have gotten better, do see it.  Anthony says it's been in the game since the beginning. 

We can't let things from a year ago hold the game back (they've mentioned ghost balls and leaderboards)  Adjust it today and by next year those ghost balls and leaderboard will be irrelevant once gain!  Look ahead and focus on the future.
