Hey everyone.  I believe I've read a post about green firmness only having 4 true settings.  As ive been reworking my Lighthouse Sound course I became frustrated setting the green to slightly above average on the slider only to findthe green  a bit too soft when landing the long irons.    So then I tap the incremental slider just a bit toward firm  and it seems like I get too much green bounce.  Is it true we only have 4 true green firmness settings?  Also if so. Will that change in tgc2?

Hmmm. Thanks yeltzman. Perhaps a three choice option of a) b) c) for firmness instead of a faux incremental slider would have helped avoid confusion amongst creators.    I think we may look back and appreciate all of the effort and foresight that went into tgc1 and realize just how much more we have in tgc2.  I for one can't wait.

I'm hoping it will be based on the Stimpmeter, 9-10-12 etc.

YES, for green speeds.

Stimpmeter has nothing to do with firmness.
