How can you match a ghost players weather settings with yours, if that makes sense. I’ve just played in strong head winds which severely affected my distances but not my ghost rivals, resulting in differences of 30-40yds off the tee. Also noted that my rival played a 3-iron but the actual graphics showed him playing a driver.

How would a ghost player be able to play his recorded next shot from a different location? You hear quite often of how the ghost player has hit his next shot from a different spot from where you seen it land. So there must already be some influence from your settings having an effect on the recorded outcome.

No, you don’t understand. I appreciate the ghosts round data is fixed, but when I choose to play that particular ghost, my weather setting should automatically match the conditions of the recorded ghost round.

You can't make sure you have the same weather settings and it's pot luck, I'm afraid.

It is a silly bug but hopefully sorted for the new game!

Thanks, I feared this may be the case.

Ahead of the new game in August, I have been enjoying playing the current game this way, which involves my own ghost rounds. Maybe others reading this would like to try it.... I have favourited 80 courses. I set up a solo society season using the first 40 of my favourites. One round shootout, back tees, pin set 1 on each course. Difficulty set up ‘hard’. I play each round by trying my absolute best. If I have a really bad hole and run up a triple-bogey or something, I regroup and try my best again. Keep trying to shoot the best I possibly can, never just give up.

First goal then, win every one-round shootout, finish top in victories and as many other season categories as you can. In my case, I did this with my first 40 favourited courses, then again with the second 40 of my favourites.

Then, I set ghost rounds to ‘my rounds’, and ‘hide ghost scores’. I then set up a matchplay game on my first favourited course, playing against my own last ghost round, which was a round where I knew I had tried my hardest on every shot, at every hole. Having played 80 rounds before going back to my first favourited course, I had completely forgotten my score, if I’d done something brilliant during that round, or something totally stupid. The task now is to treat your own original ghost as the enemy, to crush them, and keep a score over the 80 matchplay rounds, trying to come out on top in ‘the series’.

Currently, I am leading my ‘enemy’ by 10-7 in wins in the matchplay series. Some of the shots I sat and watched my own ghost playing made me say to myself ‘I remember that one!’  or equally ‘what the hell was I doing!?’. It’s a fun way to play the game, you know you’ll need to play well to beat your ghost, because as I say, even though the scores are hidden, the one thing you know is that you tried your hardest, so you’ll need to be even better to beat yourself...

10-7 up in my 80 series matchplay knockout challenge. My previous self is getting hammered again tomorrow!
