At the start of a new round where i have caught up to the leader and the leader is the first to tee off, I cannot select "Other Player" - Me after the leader's shot. So the Leader (computer) continues and completes the hole. At that point the computer gets into a loop, repeating the last putt. The only way out is to end the round. At that point the only thing I can do is WITHDRAW. Cannot continue the tournament.

Why would you pick other player, if you are the only one playing the round on your computer? I am missing something.

@GP: I think Career Mode is not working for him in Win 10.
Career mode game play is no different than a regular round. After a player hits (computer or real) auto redraw is for next player (computer or real).
It appears now that he is teamed with the Leading Computer Player game is not auto switching to next player on the after shot redraw, so he is trying to switch manually, but that doesn't work.
Just another Win10 glitch I suppose.

Thank you for the explanation, Captain Nemo. I haven't played Career Mode in many years, so I wasn't thinking down that road. Again, thank you.
