    Well I did it up graded my clubs to the ping graphite set..

     I'm going to play a few prctice rounds on the other courses.

    Can I upgrade my balls as well? Seems odd to have badass clubs and starter balls..

    Having a blast love this game...

    Hi everyone, we are getting a lot of feedback right now and we are reading through them all. Please note that everybody tees off from the same tee in the Virtual US Open--it does not matter what tier you are in.

    glad to see someone else is having trouble with the putting swing meter if the fact that u can't get to some holes because of length, the putting makes it worst, and i will not spend money to upgrade clubs should be able to do so for free

    The one thing I did not know is when you upgrade clubs the game moves you back to a differant tee-box.

    the putting meter is slow to react as in stopping when you click. on the 60ft putt meter it stops about 1/2" - 3/4" after you click. makes it hard to judge long putts.

    #7 on BP Black is unreal for a par 4 with any club you use/buy from WGT. I hit  247 yd drive on the fairway and still had  291 yd left???

    #10 Fairway unreachable after T shot, aim stick set up about 223 at end of rough and pefect swing with Ping driver 7 MPH wind at back and still stopped dead in rough about 2 feet from reaching fairway???

    it is nice having different 18 holes to play, but club distances are unrealistic. 525 yd par 4's are ok when you can smack a driver 310yds!!!

    its playin the real distance almost. 7500 yards basically. Which is fine except the clubs we play with dont represent real distances. They are shorter.

    Swampbuck - the action of buying new clubs will not move you up a tier or to different tees.  A player can only move tiers by playing more and getting better.  Also in the future higher tiers will have access to more tournament prizes and better gear.
