    Play Qualifier Today

    Attention top players, it appears that the cut line in the Qualifier to make the Championship rounds is 57 or better, as the Top 156 plus ties qualify for the Championship, and about 50 players have posted 56 or better, and over 150 players have posted 57, so if you're close, today is the day to shoot at 57. Good luck!

    26 Jun 2014

    We've just added some new features for Country Clubs, virtual equipment and ways to book some real-world tee times. See what's new, including...

     

    Country Club Brackets: Closest-to-the-Hole

    Country Clubs can run private Bracket tournaments too, initially stroke play and now closest-to-the-hole private tournaments for their members. Set one up today on Pebble Beach or Wolf Creek.

    If you haven't joined a Country Club yet, get in on the fun. This is a great way to make new WGT friends and always have a group to play and compete with. It's easy to find one looking for new members, or create your own!

  • Round 1 Play Underway at Criquet Cup

    23 Jun 2014

    The June stop on the WGT Virtual Tour is shaking up the leaderboards with a challenging "Best of Par 3" composite course. It features all par-3 holes from championship courses and creates a layout that favors players with accurate irons and putters.

    There are new names on the leaderboard at the Criquet Cup. Currently leading the Tour Legend tier is Argentina's Tordodam with a 37 on the par 54 course, and following close behind are BolloxInBruges, AllyKennedy, fmagnetspoldimaier, cadaviar, xXxxMARCxxXx and Wontonamo, all with 38 in Round 1.

    The top season leaders in the Tour Legend tier are also still in the hunt: dansamcam with 38, CptWomp with 39 and FrenchConnect with 41.

    The Criquet Cup is shaking up the other tiers as well, with many new leaders who are not currently at the top of the season-long standings, including:

    Round 1 of the Criquet Cup ends June 25, and Round 2 is June 26-30.

  • Pinehurst No. 2 Hole 18 Preview on WGT

    13 Jun 2014

    It's U.S. Open Week and play is underway at Pinehurst No. 2, so we're previewing the final holes of the famed course and host of the 2014 U.S. Open Championships.

    The fairway on the finishing hole at Pinehurst No. 2 is much narrower than it appears from the tee box. Players should avoid the deep fairway bunker that runs down the right side of the fairway and another tricky bunker that sits to the short, right side of the green. After missing his tee shot in the right rough, Payne Stewart saved par on this closing hole to win the 1999 U.S. Open.

    Play the 18th at Pinehurst No. 2 free without sign-up on WGT.
