    I'm fairly new to WGT but back in 2005 I played Tiger Woods PGA Tour and I actually topped cases ladder until a player called Dantendo kicked me off top spot and I never ever beat the guy who was an animal. The reason I mention this is we bought the game, we played as many rounds as we liked and the cost was one off. We played expert level where you could set wind speed and green speed and others could join or not. When I saw this game PLAY FOR FREE I thought great. Free my backside ;0( I already spent $70 to give me half a chance of winning a game or two. I included a pack of 3 balls in my shopping but unknown to me you only get so many hits per ball then you have to buy more. Talk about a rip off these people are ripping us off at every turn. Correct me if I am wrong but if I buy 3 packs of balls at 1000 coins each I have spent another $30. If I play 4 rounds and score 90 per round thats 360 hits and each ball lasts about 120 hits. If I am correct I have paid $7.50 per round. ?

    The fake virtual balls cost more than RL custom printed balls that last and last and last…until you hit one in the drink or shank one into some bad weeds.  I guess people view it as a hobby so the $$$$ don’t bother their decision to purchase virtually nothing tangible,

    People spend hundreds, thousands or even millions of dollars on cryptocurrencies so why not on mere virtual balls? 😉 They're both virtually nothing tangible, aren't they?

    Cryptocurrencies are tangible allright Simon!!! They screw up this planet for good day after day....luckily they have gone south in the last 4-5 months. Hope they stay in South Pole and freeze to death!!

    Good 1st POST . Your findings that this can be a very expensive hobby is correct . Although you will find that the hits per ball or per 3 pack last much longer than 1 round . There are many other features in which more money can be spent . Potentially adding up to a $ amount you may not want your family to know about . But it's all good , all fun , all the time . Totally justified . Right ? You can't take it with you .

    There are ways to receive free credits like watching 75 short videos per day to receive 150 free credits , that would be enough to buy you a top sleeve of balls or a couple of sleeves if you scale down a bit . Do it every day and it soon mounts up. Also surveys and winning some free to enter WGT tourneys will earn you free credits. It is possible to play without spending real money. I have never spent real Money, I have been lucky to receive a few gifts , but mostly my equipement and balls are bought using free credits.

    Thaks I'll have alook out for those videos. I played for about 2 monthd before I bought anything but then just gave in. Compared to EA Sports PGA tour Tiger Woods 2012 this have alot more flaws in it and if you don't know what they are they can cost you a game. I played one hole today 3ft uphill 25mph headwind. I hit the line dead centre with 105 yds club it went 100 mts with no roll into the rough......traps like that just make players angry and feel robbed if it happens to cost them the game. Also 12mph sidewind left to right again hit the line. I had aimed for the centre of a small bunker expecting the wind would take me half way across the fairway......ball landed smack dab in the middel of the bunker of the tee....no trees nothing to stop the wind from moving my ball....weird
