    Hi all,

    Sorry to be a pain, relatively new to the game and only play on my phone. I’m currently at Master level, I don’t play many tournaments but normally I play a 9 hole game, sometimes 2 a day. What do I have to do to keep advancing to Tour Master and beyond? Play tournaments or keep chipping away on the head to head games? 
    PS when I’m having an awesome round and opposition forfeits does that count in any way either?

    Thanks so much for your patience

    cheers

    Vaughn

    Both ways are possible.

    Either you follow the traditional path, rack up 40 ranked rounds and push your average to 63, or, by "mobile games" like HTH, push your level up (don't know the number).

    While many details have been discovered by us players, the "mixed area" lies in the shadow - WGT mostly stays silent.

    In MP strokeplay, you may finish the round alone. All other game forms will be terminated by a player quitting. Then, you only get the XPs you have accrued until that moment. Not sure about coins being at stake.

    Vaughn,i'm also a mobile player(on a tabletyou should think about it...its way better). As for the tiering up,on the mobile version there is no set requirements. One suggestion would be to get your avg at least below 70. So since there are no set requirements in mobile,i would say yes just keep plugging away in the hth's. That's how i did it 9 holers pretty much exclusively. Second question,no the forfeits have no bearing on anything. In mobile only tournaments and ranked rounds played by yourself count for anything. Cheers and good luck on your quest.

    On the contrary, there are!

    Some of the required levels for those who play "mobile" games have been named, I only don't know them because I'm not THAT interested.

    E.g., Master seems to be between L80 and L85...

    OTOH, it's good to think about what you wish for. The game will only become harder - Masters go back one tee box -, and for the "full course" games you'd want better clubs.

    Pling, pling...

    Get involved with your country club, red tee tourneys help a lot. I went from master to tour master to legend in a space of 2 weeks, they can be quite a grind but yeah keep posting those scores ?. Connorjwebb123

    While that may be good for you, let us not mislead this player. Advancing through Red Tee tournaments can have its drawbacks. If you move up too quickly this way, you will find yourself at a loss when it comes to the REAL tournaments from your default tee.

    Please, by no means, am I being negative about players that choose the Red Tee route to advance. Too each their own.

    My advice is simply take the time to learn the game. Be patient. Advancing will come when you have earned it... albeit the hard way.

    Many will say that, some of the most enjoyable times were in the early stages of their respective WGT careers.

    Mind you that the difference is not in the device that you play but in the games that you play!

    You are obviously playing many ranked rounds, thus average and saturation are the variables controlling your promotions.

    OTOH, players NOT playing these but "mobile" games, HTH + Coin Rooms, would never rise by these criteria. Instead, they are promoted in tiers when they reach certain levels.

    If you look around, you find players in higher tiers with 150 averages - impossible the traditional way.

    WGT scarcely states anything concerning this topic.
