Preach! I hate the elevated holes, just downloaded the latest IOS version so will see if the hate diminishes at all, on the last update they became so random as to whether they would spit or accept discs it felt like a lottery.

In the putting practice mode I had something strange happen. Had a putt that hit chains, went in and was in the bottom of the basket, but then suddenly it looked like a single chain snapped, flew up, and flicked the disc out.

Same thing happened a couple more times. Anyone else experience this? I've never had it happen in a round, only in the practice mode.

Aiming higher than normal has been my key to success on elevated baskets

It happens in putting practice only
People have posted ones that got kicked 1000 feet or more

Good to know it only happens in practice.

My iPhone auto updated to v912. Fast runs close to basket seem to magically slow down on missed, usually stay within C1. Lots more ace runs for me.

My fuse is actually what I use for most ace runs. Remarkably straight right to the end.

I’ll have my highest rating ever when it updates - after about 35 rounds with v912

I’m definitely a fan

The latest open tourney scores are a bit much. Looks like some people found an exploit.

I had something similar happen to me. My putt went in and shot out but mine flew all around my screen like it was in a tornado. I happen multiple times in a row. I just assumed it was my phone.

Whats in the later courses? Windmills? Little alligator heads that open and close? Do I get a free round if I ace the last hole?

The elevated baskets are less of an issue than some hills where the elevation change is very subtle. E.g. those greens (the one super slippy Crows Nest green that leads to big numbers) where the ground is slippery but there's obviously some kind of "downhill" effect though it looks flat in the game. Some of those elevation changes are subtle, and you just have to get used to them by playing the holes multiple times.
