I couldn't find any other comments on this, so apologies if it's been covered.

So it turns out that under hitting clubs actually makes the ball fly farther?

This has to be a bug with the code, why else would that happen?

I thought that it was strange when I was between clubs on a par three, so I decided to try a 90% swing with the 3 hybrid (which carries 232 yards) to take off some yards. To my amazement, the ball flew 249 yards into a 7mph wind over the green?

Ever since then I've actually used that shot to gain yards with clubs when the green is out of reach otherwise, this isn't right at all. How can not completing your back swing make the ball fly farther?

Under swinging the club to knock down a shot is a tactic that I really like to use, and is a great part of any golf game; in its current state it is impossible to do this in TGC 2019: so we are forced to use the loft bar to control distances.

I'm really enjoying the new game and think that it's a huge improvement on TGC2, except for this weirdness.

It said you hit 100% power.  Game feels broken to me
 Everything from flop shot that doesnt go high enough to balls not checking on green..
  Wish i could refund

I'm wondering if this has anything to do with the power boost that Shaun may have been talking about??

I've run into similar shots where I'm trying to hit a partial shot and I clearly stop my swing around 90% but the power reads as 100% and the ball flies further than a 100% shot normally would. I've even seen the power read 95% and I STILL fly further than the stated 100% shot should. I think this might be because it's nearly impossible to hit a perfect/perfect partial shot.

If this is the way they intended it then they've totally killed the ability (and the entire purpose) for hitting partial shots.

I've had to go back to the loft box for now which is way against my morals!  ;D

Looks like the swing gate problem from tgc1 is making a comeback, we all remember that right.
bring on 2019 tgc.
