Say it ain’t so !!! 😢 Honestly I’ll be sad to see the WGT Virtual Tour go come January.
Don't get me wrong as I really do like what I’ve seen so far of both the NEW “WGT Live Series” and “Euro eTour” events. But so far these two events look like they will be tierless “open” events where everyone from Amateurs to Tour Champions will be competing in the same event. I’m not against that as these two new events are designed to propel WGT Golf into the eSports World and having the BEST players showcasing the game is appropriate.
But the nice thing about the VT events was that being tiered, they were an opportunity for anyone regardless of skill level to legitimately compete and experience winning! I know that I personally was as 😄 as a 🐷 in 💩 back in May when I won the VT “Master” level event at Olympic CC!!! I also enjoyed the Multi Round format that most of the regular WGT tournaments do not have. The “Unlimited/Single Play” 2 round format and even better the “Unlimited/Single/Single” 3 round format of the quarterly “Majors” were a better test of skill as you only had one shot at the single play events!!!
Keep an eye out for new Tournaments like the WGT Live Series, European eTour, and more in 2020.
I for one am hoping the “and more” includes some type of Monthly, Tiered, Multi-round tourneys that don’t really currently exist now that the VT is being dissolved.
