Does that statement mean that you have pulled the server side swing tunings into the patch?  Or does it mean that we will be seeing difficulty settings that are different from what we have now?

Haven't played the patch yet but they said they made adjustments to the shot shaper lines.

"Over 20 new Course Designer Assets expanding customization options when building a custom course"
2 shelters, 8 massive sheds, 2 camera towers, and 9 crowd stands.

That's the kind of stuff they thought the game was missing. Amazing.

When playing a four ball match the balls were all visible once on green. Two balls were in my path sitting by the hole.

I’m kind of stumped by this too.  I went through all the assets in the designer and wasn’t impressed with the things they decided to add..  I would have liked to see all the rocks go global and improvements to water.  After a cursory look the waterfalls still look pretty useless.
One thing I DID like was the work done to the turf detail and transition with the heavy rough.  Kudos on that.  Hopefully I’ll find something in the future.....

When you hit your putt did your ball ricochet off of them?
