    Agreed, if you boycott, give me a shout,  I'll recommend my team do the same.  

    30 mph winds again will result in our little CC sitting out in the future too.  It's just not fun for most of us....and certainly not fair as every round is a luck of the draw.  We aren't playing for a gold putter any more for one of our members, but only for fun.  This wasn't much fun.

    WGT is a business and therefore is about making money.  Haven't they figured out yet that they make a lot less money when they set up conditions like this?

    Heavy winds for the comp only means it's the same person that starts the wekkly WGT comps. 

    Heavy Winds is no fun

    Something that also annoys me is we have 2 hrs 20 mins left in the clash and we can't start another.

    In that time we can all have another god only knows amount of games.

    Even 7 years ago when I joined WGT....   you cannot start another clash match with under 4 hours left.  That's a given.  It is also why it is important to get first match off before 3:30 AM US Eastern.

    I live in Aus and have know idea bout the time difference  lol It's jus another WGT thing I suppose when all you is in there range gets all the good prizes   lol.

    World Golf Tour should be for all of us and not only in America.

    You are correct, but if you knew your history, you would know that it wasn't a cow pasture,  it was a rabbit farm  !  if you're going to call people out, know your history. My American nickle!

    I thought golf had always been (fondly mostly) called “cow pasture pool” (as in billiards, not water), no matter which course.

    My Alaskan dime.

    Maybe WGT thinks high wind keeps variety in multiple rounds.  “Moderate” would be enough for that.

    I think you actually have an advantage in the Clash timing, mantis.  It starts in the middle of the night in US/Canada, but that’s a convenient 5 pm in Canberra.
