  • Congressional Hole 18 Preview

    29 Jun 2013

    WGT is previewing the closing holes at Congressional Country Club, site of the 2013 AT&T National event on the PGA Tour, featuring top PGA players Jason Day, Rickie Fowler, Hunter Mahan, Justin Rose and Adam Scott.

    Hole 18 is one of the most memorable on the PGA Tour, a par 4 with a challenging approach shot to the peninsula green surrounded by water and the gallery of fans in front of the clubhouse. The approach is downhill and the green runs right-to-left with a tier, so you can try a variety of shots to run the ball up or try to stick it close near this popular Sunday hole location at Congressional.

    Hole 17 is a shorter par 4 where you may want to lay-up in the larger fairway to avoid a downhill approach shot, as you want to make sure you're as close as possible to the hole with this tough ridged and sloped green where 3-putts are common.

  • Congressional Hole 16 Preview

    26 Jun 2013

    WGT is previewing the closing holes at Congressional Country Club, site of the 2013 AT&T National event on the PGA Tour.

    Hole 16 is a 580-yard par 5 that's a birdie opportunity, however you'll need an accurate drive to avoid the fairway bunkers, and a well-placed lay-up, as the elevated green is surrounded by a closely-mown area that will reject misplayed shots.

  • Congressional Hole 10 Preview

    25 Jun 2013

    WGT is taking a closer look at the closing back 9 holes at Congressional Country Club, site of the 2013 AT&T National event on the PGA Tour, featuring top PGA players Jason Day, Rickie Fowler, Hunter Mahan, Justin Rose and Adam Scott.

    Hole 10 is a challenging start to the back 9. It's a par 3 where players must carry water the entire distance and shots on the front of the green are likely to back up into the water. Depending on the hole location, shots to the right side will normally funnel back to the hole for a birdie opportunity.

  • Free Gift Today For Father's Day

    16 Jun 2013

    Log in and play WGT today, Sunday 6/16 and get a free WGT Shot Pal.

    It's Father's Day in America so we're honoring all the dads who play WGT.

    WGT Shot Pal helps you fine tune your swing power with ruler increments below the Swing Meter, especially helpful for precise approach shots.

    Play WGT Today

    Remember, you can always choose to disable Shot Pal using the Settings menu in the upper-left corner of the game.

    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 a range of factors, including club type, swing type, lie, wind, landing surface, etc.

    *Special offer for WGT players who log in and play WGT on 6/16/13, receive one free WGT Shot Pal good for 200 hits.
