I have also experienced that. For whatever reason I excel at wedges in the sim. Its my full swings that dont register. I hit it hard enough for it to be loud and for the ball to hit middle of the screen but it either doesnt register or it comes back with something like dead straight but 98 yards. I had demoed a 3 hybrid and got that particular distance. I hit my 56 degree wedge that far.
I often have near the same experience at the range. Only place I can hit a golf shot is on the golf course. It's ridiculous!! I mean come on, Im there, Im the one its happening to, Im present to witness it. It defies all logic!!!!! Has anyone else ever experienced such lop sided madness?!
It's only because, at one time, I worked with a lady from a California winery who kept referring to her Son, Pawul and her husband Gee-aw-gee-ohh! I couldn't place the accent except that I knew it was eastern. I finally asked if she was originally from Cali, and she told me she grew up in Lawn Guylund! The "G" in that accent definitely leads the second word.
Maybe I'm weird, but I really like accents. I think they make the world, and it's people, more interesting. Imagine how boring the world would be if everyone sounded like a network news anchor!
I love the challenge of knowing the my best game is in there somewhere and someday, someway, somehow...I will pull it all together in a round for a great score. What will that score be? Who knows. Right now it would be better than my current best round of 82 but (and this is what's great about the game), once I beat that score I will be looking forward to doing better the next time...and on and on it goes.
