I never worry about the $$. I just play what I want to play. Between videos and the occasional good rounds I haven't been concerned with money for balls for a couple years.
I think its only US citizens that have access to videos. In any case I wouldn't watch them because I'd rather spend my time on WGT playing the game. After initially spending money in the first couple of years I haven't spent a cent since.
There's only a few holes throughout WGT where a high spin ball would be handy. I'd have to spend time mapping a high spin ball to my clubs if I were to use one but the cost in credits doesn't justify using one. In addition they're too finicky or touchy for my liking in mod-high wind conditions.
If I were to play the E-Tour and similar tournament events using lower lvl clubs then a TM lvl 81 or Titleist lvl 70 and 87 would be the go to compensate, as many top players do, but I don't play unlimited round tourneys.
I won't waste my time, or balls, attempting to post an exceptional first round score just to be competitive in the final rounds.
In any case, this time back playing for a couple of months will be my last. I'll be off with Flash to slay Ming the Merciless, and maybe hookup with Princess Aura.
Hope your bracket fills before Dec 29th.
