    I asked him the same thing and his message was for everybody to "Step your game up!"

    It is an amazing transformation though, is it not, struggling not to come last in every event last season, and very ordinary performances this season until this tourney, it is almost like all of a sudden he has stopped getting his little baby sister to play his rounds for him.............................

    I'm trying to determine the sarcasm level, troll potential, and desired intent of this thread. My first impression was: This isn't in the Constitution on how to report a concern, if that is what is being said.

    Borderline thread lock notice...

    Bit of an over-reaction in that statement, maybe people are just interested in to how he has managed to progress to what he is shooting at the moment, well i certainly am, could use some of whatever application he is using.

    Not noticed his past scores before this fred was posted but it seems like he has done some serious practice, as do i, just hope i can attain that standard by keeping doing it.

    What you call over-reaction, I call needing to do my job to make sure things do not degrade to negativity and bashing. I'd rather be more conservative than liberal in this instance. There's a process, and it's followed. All rounds, especially top performances, are monitored by those who have accepted roles on Committees. The entire league can police itself, as it should.

    Having a fun thread is fine and good, and why this isn't locked. Just some things said could be interpreted several ways, not all productive or in good humor.

    Last week (or the one before), I shot a -9 or -10 in the first round. Had I been able to do this every round if I stayed focus, I would have been in the top 5 or better while I am usually near the bottom. If I end up lining up 4 good rounds, will I be called out in the forum like this?

    Sorry mate, i don't mean to upset you, as i can appreciate all too well that you are doing a great job running this thing.

    The only thing that i read was that folk were asking what had happened to improve his scoring, thought that was quite reasonable thing to be talked about, i know that i would have debated it if it was me, i would be shouting from the rooftops with scores like that.

    I honestly don't think that anything else, other than wow, was being implied, as you would agree with those banned controllers and yourself and your team checking all the incoming scores from our games nothing untoward CAN be done, other than good fortune, good scores achieved from lots of practice.

    Personally, looking forward to making all 6 rounds in the red.

    Because you're on a PS4, Detfan. I've played you in MLB The Show leagues before, so I know this without checking. SJH is on XB1.

    In Stephen's favor I played against his ball with turn order enabled at Locust Grove. And for the accuracy meter almost every shot was off line and the putting was horrible. I dont know how he made some of the putts he did. But it is LEGIT, he is not cheating in noway. I also played against MR tweek in first round and his putting was horrible to, I really dont know how they make the putts with the stroke there putting on the ball. 95% of all my putts are dead on the line back and forth, that being said congrats. But HB should fix this, you shouldnt be able to make a putt when the stroke can make a V lol.

    Haha. I can say that I am as shocked as everybody. I have been playing more recently and have actually been trying to play with a little more intent and focus instead of multitasking/etc.

    I think that my score this week was a combination of several other things as well - some luck, actually playing the course before starting my official rounds, low winds (I'm normally not a guy that tries to time my plays with the wind and it just happened that the day I played my rounds had a more advantageous wind), playing all of my rounds consecutively to get in a rhythm, and having a feel for the putting.

    As one user pointed out, my putting sucks by the directional game standards. I agree. That said, I putt more by feel than by straight up and back. This means that if I feel the need to push the ball a certain direction with my stroke, I will do so. It looks ugly, and isn't nearly as consistent as the people who can put it dead straight every time, but it can work out well periodically if you are just having one of those good days.

    Overall, I hope I can hold on to first in this main event, but do not anticipate competing like this very often. My general goal is just to try to crack the top ten, which I think I have only managed once or twice before this (last season). I am just happy that this happened this once.

    Not really catching the sarcasm, but as I said Mr Tweek you made your putts but they were also offline back and forth. I simply made a comparison and that both of yal were LEGIT players. your welcome to play against my ghost next week and watch my putts.
