I was playing my TGC Tours rounds and I came across this little anomaly.

I can't see any reason for the ball to act this way.

I've sussed it out Wolfy....

See the large sunken rocks surrounding the pond? There must be a facet, almost but not quite (talking micro millimeters), protruding through the greens surface!!

I imported the published course back into the designer to check & sure enough here are my findings whilst in edit mode.
For those not familiar with the designer; the yellow outline is rock sunk under the ground. Here's the culprit in pictures >>>

It really sucks when stuff like this happens.  Now this one tiny little thing is going to drive you nuts.....
You can fix it and re- publish it with a different name.   But it will always still be there.....
This is EXACTLY the reason HB should give us Designers the ability to either Edit OUR OWN Courses or to be able to Delete the flawed ones completely to make way for an upgraded version.
