Just as in real golf, if you hit a virtual golf ball into the
water or out of bounds, you must replace it with a different ball. Also, when
you play with a real golf ball it begins to lose compression and eventually
becomes less playable. We have a similar concept in WGT where balls purchased
from the Pro Shop have a durability factor and will wear out as you use them.
You get roughly three rounds of golf with each ball before it wears out.
When a ball wears out you will receive the
message that the ball has been "Taken Out of Play".
Additionally, when a balls wears out, it is automatically
replaced by another ball of the same type from your inventory. If you have none
of the same type, they are replaced instead with a free WGT starter ball.

As for having troubles with your meter, we recommend trying the following:
- Trouble shooting steps and system requirements, particularly clearing the
browser and Flash cache:
- Close other programs, browser windows and browser tabs
- Have the wgt.com
website open but minimized and not displayed
- Play WGT in the original window size, do not maximize it to full screen
- Turn off Reflections, Flag Animation, Background
