NEW CLUBS – PING G20 HIGH-LEVEL
The latest technology from PING, the new PING G20 clubs, now available for top players.
These new virtual clubs start unlocking at level 81, and include a new driver, woods, irons and a discounted full set…all with solid overall distance and control, as well as a slower WGT swing meter.
NEW FEATURE - BLOCK PLAYER
WGT has a great community, but you might not want to hear from EVERYONE, so now you can use the new Block Player option on your Account page.
Blocking a player removes the ability for that player to invite, friend, challenge, or message you on WGT.
SPECIAL OFFER – FREE GREEN BALL ON ST. PATTY'S DAY
To celebrate St. Patrick's Day, WGT is giving away 1 WGT GI-SD virtual ball, in green of course, to everyone who logs in on 3/17 and plays WGT on St. Patty's.
Get more distance and control...plus a little luck of the Irish!
