On the round setup page there is the option to play the round as handicap or not. When I choose "no" the round is played as handicapped anyway. On my page the default setting is no. Am I missing something or what? I normally play with ghosts and sometimes like to play just a leisurely game.
Comments or flames appreciated.

If you leave a round for any reason, including crashes and manual Quit, when you come back to play the scoring is handicap no matter what your settings are.  it's a long-standing bug in the game.
How did I make a twelve on a par five hole? It's simple - I missed a four foot putt for an eleven.

OK, I'm not quitting, crashing or pausing the game. I go to "round setup" and choose no for handicap. The game starts and stays as a handicap round no matter what I do. The only way I've found to play without handicap scoring is to play courses that are not yet rated. I maybe need to contact HB ask what's happening. Even IRL I can play a couple of rounds non handicap before the weekend.

I'm on PS4.  The bug on PS4 occurs even when I play alone.

I am in no way associated with HB but i will bet my life on it your troubles will never be fixed until a new installment which = more cash from you.

Well pretty sure anyway. I've run TGC since open beta and pre-ordered TGC2 and got the proverbial gold driver. TGC2 is the one with the really pretty water. right?
