    Everything about August is proprietary so I doubt WGT will ever get license to include in their site.

    Agree 100%! ... There is no telling if the green speed numbers in WGT are very close to those on the real golf courses. The fact that they correlate means very little unless that correlation coefficient is approximately 1.

    Besides, if WGT was a true simulator we would not see players shooting regularly in the mid 50s or even below 50s.

    I think that says it all; i.e.,  like you suggested: "this is a computer game !" And that is all it is. Nothing more, nothing less.

    MisterT99:

    I would add every other round 27-29 mph winds. Does every other round need to be played just outside the eye of the storm? And on 8/9 holes it is in your face, at your back only on a short P3. WTG needs a better weather forecast. 

    RIGHT, it's a computer game.

    Not so sure. They let EA Sports use it,

    That may be the reason - an exclusive deal with EA. (Or, quite simply, a disagreement on the price to pay)
