    One lucky sweepstakes winner, regardless of score, will win a Grand Prize trip to the 2020 U.S. Open at Winged Foot Golf Club. Additionally, the top 156 scores (plus ties) will advance to the Virtual U.S. Open Championship tournament, to compete for a second Grand Prize trip to the 2020 U.S. Open.

     

    As a special gift from the USGA everyone who enters the Qualifier will also receive a free USGA avatar or virtual apparel, a Lexus virtual golf ball and Lexus-branded Putter Pal.

    Hi WGT icon, i had great hopes for this May update to find high level driver, but nothing!!!

    When will we have better drivers in the pro-shop, not that the callaway rogue isnt long, but shorter than the Taylormade R1 that lucky high players own?

    Thanks for your reply

    Hi

    We will always be adding new equipment; however, I do not have any dates for specific products.

     Uhhhhh...  just for clarification....          You currently own and play with a  Calloway Rogue Lvl 100 driver  (which is the highest level available) and you care to piss and moan about a 2yrd spec differential................?

    I would have loved to have gotten the Cobra F9 Speedback at say level 100 but that is because I play Cobra woods IRL. I certainly don’t need a better driver and won’t cry about not getting the Cobra driver.

    Hi LuckySkreet, i am not moaning, i just want some infos.

    By the way we all know that the difference of yardage, with the same ball and playing the ding is not 2 yards but more around 10 to 15 yards and that it can change a 2nd shot.

    And also its a matter of pleasure to change stuff wich provides pleasure in this game too, otherwise WGT wouldnt have a pro-shop.

    Thats the purpose of my post, not moaning at all.

    Nothing serious, but shouldn't these new Titleist vapour balls show a vapour...

    ...like the others?

    Dneirf owned the TaylorMade R1 Driver from Tour Legend through current Champion Tier.

    Never thought the Driver was all that great.

    Yea, yea, yea, higher trajectory, longer distance, best forgivness, and best, best, best, of everything.....right!

    The ONLY thing I found the TaylorMade R1 Driver good for, and BEST feature was, causing unbalance within the rest of the club set in use.


    Those Fantastic Long Drives ALWAYS left the lie of the ball in-between clubs, or in-between the ranges of all individual clubs in the bag.

    Dneirf found the TaylorMade R1 Driver to be incompatable with any and all clubs in the WGT Pro Shop.


    The TaylorMade R1 Driver was an stand alone club in the bag, acting as an wedge against all other clubs in the bag, and I am pleased that it has been removed from the Pro Shop.

    The game of golf is all about POSITION, NOT distance.


    God Bless,
    -Dneirf

    (Every hole seems to have a new pin as a friend just played B9 & got a new pin on 10)
