Shot going backwards??

Postby cotterk » Mon Nov 20, 2017 8:18 pm

Twice today my grandson hit a chip shot and the ball started travelling backwards very fast. Probably went 100-200 yds before it stopped. Could never get back to green.

What would make this happen? We had to pick up for that hole because we couldn’t get back to one of our balls. We were playing a scramble

Still lots of erratic behavior with JNPG. One tee shot went up in the air and never came down. ????

Putts go backward ????

I like a lot of the features of JNPG. However , compared to TGC it’s not very stable

Could it be the course I was playing? Pommery

None of this happens in TGC

When putts go backwards, it could be because you're trying to putt from off the green and did not select the Putter Icon.

I pretty sure that was not the case. I really like the features of JNPG, especially the team play.

Not giving up on it. Could it be course related?

Possible. Can you post a video of this happening? You're on GC2 or Skytrak? Nobody else is having this problem. so, its not a game problem. Try a different course.

It’s hard to predict when this will happen to video? I find it hard to believe that no one ekse has ever experienced this.

I am using a Skytrak. Rarely get a misread. Is always very stable on TGC. Has been pretty good with JNPG but have experienced some erratic behavior recently.

First thing to eliminate is SkyTrak - so when you get weird shots, check out what the Post Shot screen says in PG (but ignore club angle and club path as they're not used with sim). You can also Alt-Tab to SimConsole and see the same info there if Post Shot screen has disappeared.

Can't say I've seen a ball go backwards. There are over a hundred rounds a week being completed without issue on JNPG with SkyTrak on the Tour here - but we're all pretty much the same adult players - maybe there's some issue if your grandson is young. Suspect SkyTrak more though as one of the GC2 guys has his 4 year old playing a lot and hasn't reported any issue.

JNPG does not like extremely low or zero launch angles unless on the short stuff, and SkyTrak too wants to be in putting mode when putting as ZMax said. Those are the main times when one gets seriously wrong results in game.

Another thing - screen video recording software like nVidia's built in ShadowPlay have pre-roll recording like car dash-cams do, meaning they're always capturing the last 15 seconds or so and chucking it away unless you tell them to keep it - to allow for unpredictable events.

That may explain things a little. He does top a few shots. TGC must handle those mishits better.

We have been using TGC without incident. Just started using JNPG. Love the scramble formats and multiple tees.

Thanks for all of the quick responses

Great simulator community here. Everyone has been very helpful

You should join OGT Simulator Tour. It's much better than TGC sim tour.

This has happened to me twice. Both times when hitting a little chippy 7 iron around the green. My son hit one and the camera view flew back really fast and ended up telling him he had around 240 yards to go. Last night I was playing with a buddy and I hit a chippy 7 and the same thing happened, but mine ended up going backwards 730+ yards. Luckily I had mulligans turned on and was able to get out of that situation.

Make sure the lie does not say Green when chipping or make sure the putter is not selected.

It my cases it most definitely did not say green. 100% positive on that.

If it happens again I'll try to record in on my phone and post a video. Only happened twice, so not a huge deal. Would be bad if I was playing in a game with mulligans turned off.

Think I know what is causing this. Need to get some test data first.
