Dropping plus because of health system.

Just had an update that added the health system. In response, i cancelled my subscription to plus because of the annoyance. If health can be turned off, i will be happy to resubscribe.

I'm a PLUS user and I just use the health shield to avoid all that

What is it and how does it work.

Essentially it is a shield that enables you to continue practicing without being affected by health. Do you have iOS or Android?

I'm not sure if it works for Android, but for iOS you select health (icon between learn and clubs) and then turn on the health shield at the top.

It didn’t work when I first tried it, but after health recovered to 1 bar (4+ hours!!!) and I got this suggestion, I tried it again and it worked. Perhaps if there were a description on how this worked it would have eliminated the frustration. Okay, I am back on plus.
