    I try and do back spin and sometimes it goes the other bloody way

    I've had this happen also. Sometimes with a backspin the ball will spin left or right instead of back. I know I've seen it with some golfers more then others. It has even happened on a flat green with - grain so the green layout can't be causing it as much as I would think.

    Could someone explain to me how they are reading the grain meter. I'm not sure if I'm reading it right and since I'm playing on MVS with no flyer or instructions, I have nothing to reference.

    Thanks. Is it showing you from your balls current placement in relation to the hole or always from the front of the green facing the hole regardless of ball placement?

    It sure does. It took a few moments for me to figure out how to word my question and avoid my balls perspective.

    This is the coolest thing Since I learned that pressing A+B on NES Gun.Smoke makes you shoot straight ahead.

    Grain isn't the same thing as slope though, don't confuse them. Grain will not affect your ball as much as a hill on the green will. It more tells you to compensate a bit in that direction, and that the ball will pick up speed moving in that particular direction.

    I.E. - If you're putting with the grain, your ball will move faster than if you are putting against it.

    On the topic of spin, I find it to be somewhat random at times too. In fact, yesterday I was on hole 13 or 14 of Australia and I used the spin to try and roll the ball forward, but it ended up being fucking backspin and spinning me off of the damn green entirely. Lost a whole stroke b/c of that

    That helps, I was reading it wrong and thinking it was from the front of the green. My buddy and I were playing and he asked me "hey what do those arrows mean?" I told him, "I don't know. Has to do with slope of the green, just putt in the opposite direction of the arrows slightly"

    Ya, grain is just the direction the grass grain is facing. If the grain is facing your ball then you have to compensate by hitting it harder. But there is no grain in NTM, just slope but they might call it grain.

    Wait a minute sally! I'm pretty sure that you have grain and slope in "los turfes. The arrows were the grain is facing affects your shot gradually depending on distance. The slopes are there too, as you know they can be very unforgiving.

    Today I learned that NTM has topspin and backspin.

    Another unapparent feature is that selecting a character or course with A+B+C randomizes the selection. (or more easily, holding B+C while pressing A)
