The objective in Golf is to get the ball in the hole in as few shots as possible.

Now you tell me   ..

How did I make a twelve on a par five hole? It's simple - I missed a four foot putt for an eleven.

Here is why you are banned from my society, this is only one example of what you do off of every tee, every fairway. I am also not the only person who followed you in a game.  I am not accusing you of cheating, but we have a policy against str8t shooting which you are clearly doing and the reason for the ban. There are a few reasons for those results. It  could be dpi set to low on mouse, yet you say your using an Xbox controller.. or  It is possible your controller is worn out and the result is giving you no deviation.

Although I'm not involved in this society or tournement, I have 4 different ds4 controllers on my ps4 and with none of them can I achieve an almost perfect line consistently as shown in the video example. If this type of straight lining existed in my society I would of banned them as well.

Anyone who uses a standard controller without alterations knows that type of white lining is impossible consistently.  You cant take it personally because the reults show that your cheating even if your not intentionally.. If you have a magic controller or anything else it's easy to spot.  If I'm playing anyone whom is showing results like that I end the game.

Ive played this game as much as anyone with a bunch of different controllers and that type of straight lining is impossible with standard working controllers.  In sorry, but if you've played the game enough it's easy to spot an offending controller because no one is that consistently straight.

Just to note, ProtoNC has also been flagged in my society (Original Golfer). I played with your ghost in the recent tournament and can confirm that you hit on an impossibly straight line on about 98% of your shots. The only reason that you don't win every event is because you are not nearly as skilled in all of the other aspects of the game, such as accounting for wind and elevation, and short game. No offense intended.

Because my society is not super competitive and is more for showcasing designs, and because you aren't winning events, I'm of the mindset that I'm not super concerned. I have opened up to the society for suggestions, however, so I just want to give you a heads up in case you find yourself banned from my society in the future, that it is due to concerns from the society over your straight shooting, whether intentional or unintentional.

I honestly don't know what the best approach is, as I use an Xbox controller and have tried the PS4 controller in the past, and I actually have to play for a right to left ball flight on every shot because I can't hit it on a straight line. Whatever may be causing it, I do hope you get it figured out, because I would always prefer to be inclusive rather than banning folks.

Okay Divot,  lets get up to date here.  I've played Tgc1 and 2 a heck of allot and you know that.  When I quit playing TGC2 I do so for about 8 months because I was very saddened by the live multiplayer and game modes and the fact it took a step backwards..  You see,  I play TGC to enjoy with friends playing live rounds so I was just over it after tgc2 regressed in terms of live play in many ways..

Once HB announced they were adding live multiplayer and game modes it was that very day that lifted my boycott and started playing tgc2 on my PC.  I then signed up for stress test and beyond excited by the progress HB made and was very happy with the new multiplayer system.   To even make this story better,  I then went and purchased tgc2 for my PS4 to show HB some support.  I never bought tgc2 on my ps4 because I always heard people complaining about it but once I got a new ps4 pro I thought it was a good time to get tgc2.  I have to admit I've been having fun playing in the career mode and using ghost players.. I love the crowds so that is really the only reason I'm playing career.. 

I think I love all the things about tgc2 that many of your hardcore guys hate..  I like the crowds,  live play,   create a golfer,  changing clothes,  playing unknown designers courses,  relaxing rounds, ETC..  I have zero issues with the swing or anything related to how the game plays..  My only issue was a pathetic multiplayer experience..

I know what you're saying is true,  I can hit it about as straight as you possibly can,  but I still always seem to go left...  No one is good enough to straight line everything...   I really love the swing because it does award you when you get into a groove but if you go offline just little you can easily be off an extra 15 feet left or right of the hole.

You moaned on and on here about boycotting TGC2.

And your last statement is incorrect. I love many of those things. I simply want realistic shot outcomes and scoring outcomes on the most challenging level.

I think wanting realistic golf is on everyone's list, but this is a game and that will never happen, but I have high hopes for improvement in TGC2019.  It would be really nice to see the competition reach a new level where the best golfers out there place a score that  is more realistic. That is where the real challenge is.

Well said. I think you run one of the best societies in the game. Keep up the great work...Cheers

I don’t see why it could never happen? And there is of course a point that is close enough.

It’s not like lap times in the best driving simulators are twice as fast as in real racing. Yet - in a “Golf sim” that is exactly the case.

Why?

Me thinks that our beloved hbs is reaping the benefit of perfect gaffe's SIM specialist migrating over from the spiraling arms of pg after the realization the end is near.   I see a few PG frat boys spending more time over here with some new found expectations. Here is hoping that hb delivers so we can all frolic together in the majestic fields of tgc19
