I have noticed something odd regarding the distance shown by the yellow marker and the distance to the hole. I showed a distance to the hole of 19 ft and 24" down. I placed the yellow marker over the hole at the exact same distance of 19 ft only it indicated the hole was 18 " down. I have seen this a few times before. Usually the two match up fine, but this does show up here and there.  Anyone else see this ?

I am going to move this to the PC bugs forums so we can follow up.  I have never seen this before (about 100+ hours on the PC).  I am curious if anyone else has.  But we will look in to this.

I'm seeing this more often. If you line up the yellow marker with the hole it does happen on a semi regular basis. Am I the only one seeing this ?  I hope I posted the screenshot correctly.

Hi Henry - in that picture, there is no discrepancy.  One say 11 yards, on says 33 feet.  11 yards =33 feet.  It says yards because you are on the fringe.  Once properly on the green, it will switch to feet.

Why doesn't the hole indicate 7" up ?

Because you are not on the putting surface?  I will have to test this...not sure if it shows elevations from the fringe.

The yellow marker indicates 19" up but the other data indicates 2ft or 24 " up for the same distance. So which is correct ? My experience says go with the yellow marker.
