  • Merion Hole 1 Preview on WGT

    07 May 2013

    Merion Golf Club is hosting the 2013 U.S. Open Championship, and is now available to play free online on World Golf Tour (WGT).

    Hole 1 at Merion is one of golf's great opening tee shots, right next to the clubhouse patio for some extra pressure. It's a shorter dogleg right par-4, about 350 yards, but the sycamore tree on the right will discourage most big-hitters from trying to drive the green. A more conservative drive and an accurate approach shot will avoid the bunkers and could yield an opening birdie.

    Try it yourself! You can play Merion Hole 1 free on WGT. And stay tuned to play all 18 holes on Merion Golf Club.

  • 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.

PGA pro Davis Love III has won the Heritage a record five times with the last in 2003.
