  • Single v. Unlimited Play

    20 Oct 2008

    Some of you have expressed confusion as to when you can play a tournament many times, and when you can play only once. We're working on updating graphics and descriptions to make it more clear, so look for the changes in the coming days.

    Single Play Tournaments - One Chance to Play

    All Stroke Play tournaments are single play tournaments, which means you can play only once. This is true whether the tournament is Leaderboard- or Sweepstakes-based. If you close your game client in the middle of a game, or choose "SAVE", you will be asked to resume or forfeit the next time you open the game client. You must choose "RESUME" if you want to post a score. If you choose "FORFEIT", you will not post a score, nor will you be allowed to play again. Please note that choosing "END ROUND" automatically forfeits your entry and you will not be able to play the stroke play tournament again.

    Unlimited Play Tournaments - Play Many Times

    All Skill Challenge tournaments are unlimited play tournaments, which means you can play as many times as you like during the tournament period. This is true whether the tournament is Leaderboard- or Sweepstakes-based.

  • WGT Tips: Building Your Profile

    17 Oct 2008

    Now that you've had a chance to sample the WGT Beta, here are some tips for getting the most out of your experience. Your profile is where the community discovers you, a place to share your accomplishments, and a way to meet new virtual golf buddies. Below are some tips on spicing up your profile:

    Add Friends

    Adding friends is easy. Go to the profile page of the player you'd like to add, then click the ADD AS FRIEND button to the right of the avatar. After your friend confirms, you will see a green circle next to their name in the Friends module whenever they are online and available for a multiplayer game!

    Collect Awards

    Who doesn't love a mantle full of trophies? The more you play, the better you get, and the more awards you'll win. Click here to see a chart of the awards that are available.

    Post Your Replays

    Sometimes saving a replay is the only way your friends will believe that you made a 41 ft putt. To do this, click on VIEW REPLAY in the lower left-hand corner of the game client while your drive or approach shot is in motion (on the scorecard if you've just finished a hole). Then click SAVE and name your replay. You can even send replays to your friend's email address, by clicking SHARE.

    Share Your Thoughts

    The blog is a great way to share an interesting picture or video, make announcements, or jot down your thoughts. Simply click on NEW BLOG POST and type away. Your friends will be notified when you make a blog post.

    Make a Virtual Tee Time

    Don't see your friends online? Go to their profile page and post a Wall message to suggest a virtual tee time. The Wall is also the place to brag to your friends, or just to say hi. Simply click on NEW WALL POST, and leave a message!

    :: Voilà—A Fabulous Profile Page! ::

    Best,
    Alex
