This is nasty, as it completely ruins handicaps.
Just played a matchplay round against a transatlantic friend.
I won, (6 & 4) but the shocker was his handicap was utterly ruined because of the following:
Every time I won a hole and he had a tap-in for par it scored this as a bogey.
Every time I won a hole & he carded a bogey, it scored triple.
This is utter nonsense and seems very broken to me.
It has certainly put me right off matchplay.

I'm sure administration and developers at HB will be in touch soon.  Unfortunately, I submitted numerous bug reports in December (ghost balls in private alt shot, hitting off of a half buried golf ball instead of a tee, etc) and I'm not sure if they were ever even noticed. (I bump the bug report thread once in a while) I do wish you the best of luck in getting your answer as I'm still patiently waiting for a response to my issues and hope they'll be fixed in a future patch.

I know what you mean about Private Alt Shot - saw that for the first time yesterday in a 4-way match.
Most disconcerting, as it looks like something is terribly wrong and takes quite a bit of getting used to - especially on the greens.

The ones that still really "bug" me are the broken chipping mechanic, the broken part swing mechanic (where it is impossible to get anything apart from a fast backswing) and the stupid "power fade" mechanic where perfect/slow goes much further than perfect/perfect (by over 10 yards off the tee) and the way a slow downswing pushes the ball way right as opposed to what it should do - go less distance. I have shown this to several golfers and they all agree it is just wrong.

Today I had a doozie though - flop shot, delofted. Went over the hill, onto the downslope, then span back up the freaking hill where on a different hole it checked up after one bounce & stopped dead on a yellow downslope!!
If I screw up a shot I can live with it, but a broken mechanic that HB refuse to even acknowledge just annoys me.
