Problem with golfing during championship (Episode 4)

I'm not sure if I've hit a game glitch or not.

I'm in the Towne Center. I selected the short round first and the golf ball went down where it should (not) have. But now I'm at a point where I'm completely stuck, and I'm wondering if the game is stuck in a logic loop.

The camera is zoomed in on the sidewalk and the only option I'm given is the Wrong Trousers' remote control with the selection of which course to use.

When I choose the short course, the Trousers walk off and Wallace talks about how he needs to focus on getting the ball back from the place where it ended up. Then the view drops back to the sidewalk and the Trousers' control in inventory.

When I choose the long course, all that I get is Wallace hitting the ball until it comes back to where it started, he'll ask Gromit which club to use, and it drops back to zooming in on the sidewalk with the Trousers' control again. I'm given no option for choosing a different club, and I can't get past either of these two scenarios.

Have I run into a bug here or is there something that I'm just completely missing?

    Nevermind. This actually belongs in the Bug thread as far as I can tell.

    I'm having the same problem. Now do I have to start all the way from the beginning and hope that next time it does not occur (who the hell came up with this auto save system???) or is there a way to avoid this?

    :( Same problem here. Any way to fix this without starting over?

    I had the same problem. I finally tried mashing the arrow buttons just as the screen was changing after the long hole. It finally got me out of the sidewalk loop and back onto the street. A stupid interface glitch in my opinion, but it let me get on with the game. Good luck with this.
