    G'day WGT.

    Just arrived back at the clubhouse after a fine 18 at Kiawah. The birds evaded me.. but such is golf!

    During the 18 the player educated me that he made a certain amount of credits per tier progression. I said "what", quickly followed by "So thats how you own that shiny Spider putter!!".

    Is this infact true?

    I am at pro status and have only attained credits through winning tournaments.

    Would appreciate some clarity on the situation :) Just want to know I am not missing out on any benefits.

    Looking forward to seeing you all around the golf course, give me an add and we'll have a round!

    Here is a breakdown of the number of credits you earn when advancing tiers:

    • Hack to Amateur - 50 credits
    • Amateur to Pro - 100 credits
    • Pro to Master- 200 credits

      You were already a 'Master' when they started giving credits for advancing tiers. In that case they only gave you credits for your last advancement. (pro to master=200 credits).

    Ah thankyou very much for the reponses. So this is a new adjustment? Pity about the 150 credits that got away :(

    By dropping your average score to 79 or lower, pwjacobson. (And the earnest plea to all new site users is: please don't lower your average score artificially by quitting multi-player rounds.)

    Just drop your average down. 200 credits from pro to master, 100 credits from amateur to pro, and 50 credits from hack to amateur
