I wonder if Oakmont signed an agreement in 2007 with WGT when they hosted that years US Open.
Is it possible that it was just that those 10 years were up and neither side wanted to continue.
The problem WGT have is encouraging new members who will spend money because thats what its all about. Many of us have been members for many years when we joined we thought the game was the bees knees, and if I and you were enamoured with it when we joined why should current new players not also be happy, as they know nothing else.
One interesting thought however is that I always look at the new player photos top right of the WGT Players page. Over time these photo's are remaining on the page longer and longer. Is that because there are less and less people joining? because if that's the case then we could be into a rough time if WGT go into saving money mode. Is that what Oakmont was about
Incidentally I have just looked at the Top Golf games on my tablet one on one version only 236 players are playing that type of game at 0900 London Time, compare that with 8 ball pool where those playing one on one games is more that 144,000 people. Somebody has got it right.
