To be honest....I'm quite looking forward to the 4 tournaments he's mentioned
The problem with those tournaments, TBE, is that they only benefit the very top of each tier. I won't be entering because I have absolutely no chance of even getting into the top 100 of the Legend tier let alone any chance of winning. But a new course benefits everyone.
The WGT Nation tournaments are a waste of time too - 3 prizes per tier; looks like Bollie, Dan, Genorb and a few others are going to be getting loads of Christmas presents, whilst the rest of us wonder what WGT Nation is all about.
Sorry TBE, but the tournament, and WGT Nation, are only there for the elite 0.1%.
And I agree with the comment that WGT could have told us long ago that we would not be getting Lytham, even if they had another possible course in the pipeline which they could have still kept secret; would have been much less of a letdown in my opinion. If it takes 6 months to produce a course, then they will have known at least at the start of the year, and more than likely earlier as they will have done the photography when the weather will have been nicer.
