At least it indicates that the ball starts flaring rather late - the reasons are manifold, though, but the symptoms sound fishy.
For a proper ball reaction you should be able to see the PAP/hole/marker "swirl away" after some time, at least after passing the arrows, when the ball starts entering areas with more friction. It is IMHO an indicator that the ball does not finish well, or does not go through a proper skid/hook/roll phase. Sounds as if it was skidding too long (which is hard to believe, the FMG is not intended to go long), and/or that the core does not re-orient itself towards its PSA. This assumes that the layout is nothing exotic (e .g. a pin close to the PAP could inhibit any flare) and the lanes are not totally oiled up to the pin deck.
