  • Your New Pal on WGT

    23 Apr 2013

    Fine tune your swing power with the new WGT Shot Pal, available now on World Golf Tour.

    Similar to what the WGT Putter Pal does for putts, the WGT Shot Pal displays a ruler below your swing meter so you can better measure the power on your shots. It's especially helpful on approach shots!

    Shot Pal is available for 20, 200, 1,000 or 2,000 shots, starting at only 10 WGT Credits, and does not work with Putters or WGT EZ Swing clubs.

    See Shot Pal

    *Note: unlike Putter Pal, Shot Pal doesn't show the exact percent markings on the swing meter ruler, because shot distance isn't as directly related to shot power, like putting distance is related to putting power. This is due to shots involving club type, swing type, lie, wind and other factors.

  • Harbour Town Hole 18 Preview on WGT

    19 Apr 2013

    Harbour Town is one of America's top ranked and iconic golf courses. The Harbour Town Golf Links golf course is the host of the PGA Tour's annual RBC Heritage golf tournament and is available as a free closest-to-the-hole online game on World Golf Tour.

    Hole 18 is the signature hole of Harbour Town, featuring the famous red and white lighthouse in the background. It's typically one of the toughest holes at Harbour Town for PGA players, because of the challenging drive and approach shot. PGA pro Davis Love III has won the Heritage a record five times with the last in 2003.

    You can try the same approach shot the pros face, free on World Golf Tour in this month's Harbour Town Tiered tournament. In this special tournament, you're competing against players in your same WGT tier, giving you a better chance of earning WGT Credits.

    WGT Hole 18 Tip - Favor the right side of the green to avoid shots landing short or left and getting wet.

  • Harbour Town Hole 17 Preview on WGT

    17 Apr 2013

    Harbour Town is one of America's top ranked and iconic golf courses. The Harbour Town Golf Links golf course is the host of the PGA Tour's annual RBC Heritage golf tournament and is also available as a free closest-to-the-hole online game on World Golf Tour.

    Hole 17 is a challenging par 3 hole at Harbour Town. The long 191-yard approach shot is to a green surrounded by water and bunkers, so you need to make your shot accurate or you'll end up in the lagoon.

    You can try the same tee shot on World Golf Tour in this month's Harbour Town Tiered tournament. In this special tournament, you're competing against players in your same WGT tier, giving you a better chance of earning WGT Credits.

    WGT Hole 17 Tip - Pay attention to the wind speed and direction on your tee shot, as the head and crosswinds can easily carry shots into the water or bunkers.
