The bounce of the ball is a little to much now. In tgct1 it was not enough and now it is about double what it should be.  I have seen the strangest bounces that would never happen on a real course. balls that land perfectly in the centre of a fairway and then take a left turn and bounce off into the rough and onward into a pond.  Maybe it could happen  if the course had not received water in 3 year.  lol


The spin on the greens is a bit quirky too. I have seen where the ball lands and then sits then zig zags backwards.  It makes me laugh, but they have to fix that.

I like it, I see more of the course now, especially the bunkers. :)

While I do agree that the bounce is too much, I wouldn't say it's twice what it should be. But just so you know, this can work both ways. I have seen my ball go slightly offline from the tee and it hit heavy rough and from there bounce onto the fairway. This doesn't happen very often on a real course due to the nature of the courses. if the fairway has bumps in it, the ball will bounce according to the bumps. But I think it is not the actual ball bounce but the hardness of the fairways. They seem too hard, and this will cause exaggerated bounce. I think the course hardness needs to be adjusted, not the actual bounce.

Only place bounce is a bit off is the heavy rough. In fairway it is spot on if yu compare to better golfcourses that are well prepared IRL.

agree with the heavy ruff, a bit to much

Bounce is perfection.  My ball bounces like that in fairway... It's legit

We may look into tweaking the bounce in the heavy rough.  We try our best to capture the wide range of ball behavior that you can see in real life.  Here are some fun clips of the crazy things that little golf ball can do when impacting deformable terrain at high speeds with large amounts of spin.

ball bounce in the rough is for sure too much, around the greens there is not enough, at least vertical bounce. The harder the greens the more they bounce forward but they don't bounce any higher. It's pretty odd. I'm also really confused how sidespin doesn't effect the ball on the green.

No matter how HB tweaks this, there will always be complaints by the constant complainers. To call it absurd is absurd...............

What I am seeing to often regarding rough behaviour is the second bounce, it adtually accelerates off this bounce the first is generally ok

yes, and they haven't tweaked physics really at all since they made them tgc1 style the 3rd build. So maybe that's why people are "complaining"

Look, i have no intention of getting into any back and forth with you but...

Your statement makes absolutely no sense, in that TGC had no ball bounce..everyone agrees the physics were not good...

That's it......i'm outta here...........

Short game overall has its shortcomings.
