Hi Don / Nicole
I noticed that WGT has started CTTH Putting tournaments. Will these be available to play on the Mobile app at some point?
I would hate to reopen an old wound, but considering there are players out there that have mastered the pitch/chip ( wedge ) shot on the greens, I personally would not recommend this type of tournament to anyone...
Unless you are one of "those" players mentioned above
Agree Don, i wouldn't play them either, but there is nothing in the rules of golf to prohibit it, so wgt are stuck with it, at least they stopped the spin option which made it even easier for them.
This isn't having a go at those who use it btw, they are breaking no rules and it takes a skill they have to learn by trial and error, it just makes a bit of a mockery of calling it a "putting" competition when there are players who may not not take the putter out their bag to win one of them.
I have to say that in some regards I agree with you both. That may sound odd coming from some someone who favours the
"lofted putter" but, as already said, it is allowed.
As I see it though, it's a random draw event with three entrants each able to win 500cr. Your score bears no relevance to your ability to win a prize. (As I found out a while back when I topped the pile at Bethpage, which p*ssed me off : ) )
*btw in all my time wedging 'em I've never won a sausage!
