Played against someone today that every time they would hit in the rough, their ball would be replaced in the fairway on their next shot.  I assume they are using some kind of cheat code.  Is there any way to disable/block these codes?

Was this a ghost ball you was playing against?.

Just a glitch or something then?  I played him twice and it happened in both matches more than once.  I just assumed he was cheating, but maybe it was something else.

I believe it has more to do with conection speed, when I play ppl who have satelite or very slow internet speed...thier ball flight and landing is rarely where they are hitting from for the next shot

Set a handicap limit to your society. The cheaters will soon not be eligible.

Along with this, I have come to see a pattern...the first round  of H2H is always same tees for me and ball placement is fine...If I choose to play opponent again its always different, and thus ball lands calculated from that tee box, but his second shot is placed where it would be if he hit from same tees as me.

If I choose to play a rival from notification list and forget to choose the same tees he played from this same process will happen.

So next time see if you are playing from same tees
