We released many new features today, including a new fast game format called Blitz, an overhaul to our Pro Shop, improved Country Club invitations, a new Legend Golf Ball, and Kilts (yes, avatars with kilts, our guilty pleasure).
Ever feel like playing against some friends but don't have the time to play a full 9 or 18 holes? If so, then Blitz is for you.
Blitz is a new multi-player game played on any of our Closest-to-the-Hole courses. You can select any CTTH course, create a group of 2-4 players and play a fast, action-packed game against your friends.
There are a variety of new scoring options in addition to distance from the hole, like multipliers and streaks, so anybody can win, even down to the final hole with a great shot. Find Blitz on the main menu of WGT.

PRO SHOP OVERHAUL
If you've played WGT recently, you've seen that as you reach a new Level we unlock more virtual equipment in the Pro Shop . To make that easier for you, we've just improved our Pro Shop with filtering, sorting, comparisons and reviews. Visit the Pro Shop
First, you can now choose to display only Pro Shop items that are available to you or just items that you don't own, as well as sorting by a variety of options.
You now have the ability to compare up to 3 items see the attributes for each side-by-side, to help you choose the best one for you.
And our new player reviews make it easy to hear what other people think about any item in the Pro Shop, or enter your own review.
COUNTRY CLUB INVITATIONS
All Country Club invitations and requests for membership are now delivered via the Invitation tab on your Friends List.
This should make it much easier to invite your friends to your Country Club and run your own tournaments.
NEW PRO SHOP ITEMS
