    Dates: Monday, July 13 to Friday July 17

    For those worried about moderation, I will look at requests that were posted to the thread through today but won't display until the weekend. 

    I cannot promise that all requests will be filled. But I can promise all requests will be considered. So, don't worry too much about posting today and being on moderation.

    The following protocols for both requesting and giving gifts are adapted and modified from previous Christmas events (i.e. Christmas in July and 12 Days of Christmas). As far as criteria for giving gifts, that is left to the individual Santas.

    Below is a link to my criteria for gifting. If it's helpful, great! If it's not helpful, feel free to disregard.

    The protocol for requesting a gift:
    1. Be specific with your request. Please state the Level and name of the ball or equipment. Please do not simply say "Sleeve of Callaway balls." Santas really don't like to guess.

    2. Simply post your request and leave the rhetoric to a minimum. Let's keep this thread and event positive. 

    3. Thank your Santa. Posting the thank you in this Christmas thread is fine. Or posting to the Santa's wall is also fine. But please say "thank you."

    4. The player gifting you should post the following to your wall: "YGIOIW" or something similar. Please do not delete this wall post until after the event has ended. For the Santas, this is very helpful information and helps to ensure that there is not double or cross gifting.

    5. If you receive a gift, please do not post a second request for another gift.

    6. Please remember that this event is being run by regular players. While there are many people who are more than happy to help, our credits are also limited. Santa's bag has limits. It's simply not going to be possible to fulfill every request. We do our best. 

    7. We cannot gift above a player's level. For example, if a player is Level 52, we cannot gift the player the Level 59 Ping irons. 

    8. Finally, please be patient with all the Santas and give them time to respond. While every post may not get acknowledged with a reply, every post will be read and considered by someone. At times, it can just take a bit of time. 

    The protocol for giving a gift:
    1. Before gifting to a player, check this thread. In the second post, I will list the names of those who have been gifted. Even though I will try to do that throughout the event, there will be a necessary lag between when a player is gifted and when I can update this thread.

    2. Check the recipient’s wall to see if "YGIOIW" has been posted.

    3. If you're confident the player has not been gifted, then post on the recipient’s wall "YGIOIW," which simply stands for, “Your gift is on its way.”

    4. After posting to the player's a wall that a gift is being sent, then send the gift. This will help to prevent confusion and double gifting. 

    5. If possible, please also respond to the player in this thread that the gift has been sent.

    6. There is no need to post to my wall that you have sent a gift. If you want to do so, you certainly can. It's just the case that it's not necessary. If you post to this thread, I will see it.

    Hi Robert,

    First thank you for offering support to new WGT players. I find Xmas a wonderful time, especially when it is happening in summer :)

    I started playing 2 1/2 months ago, with the lockdown..., and find it so good that I continue now everyday.

    However, it takes some time to build some credits (even watching lots of videos...) and to buy good equipment to be able to compete. So any help from Santa would be greatly appreciated.

    I bought some clubs already but definitely needs a putter (still struggling with the starter one).

    1- Odissey Sabertooth Putter (L59+)

    Hope I haven't done too many mistakes, thanks a lot again to all of you and cheers from Bordeaux !

    Without even understanding how this works, is this the place to make a wish and promise santa to be a good boy? 

    If so, it would be awesome to try a better ball, like Titleist Pro V1x Vapor L72.

    If this is not how it works, can we just pretend I never said a thing?;)

    Hello Robert great thing you and others are doing again this year. 
    when sidersbest started his Xmas in July I asked for a gift of balls for my director Gaztax. And was very appreciative that they were given .
    if it’s not too much to ask , please may I have some cally L39 yellow balls please. If it’s not allowed due to my request for Gaztax earlier , I fully understand. Thank you anyway , and let’s all hope we have safe and happy times ahead. Lesley

    Gifting can only be up to the player's level. We can't give gifts above the level the player is at.

    In these very difficult and hugely worrying times, what a joy it is to see you guys pulling out all the stops to bring a little cheer to other wgt players - thank you very much indeed :-)

    I'm a struggling old Legend in the UK and would really appreciate some Taylor Made TP5x (lvl 61+) balls please.

    Please keep up all the good work and stay safe / sane.
