    Hello All,


    I am very new to this game and have playing daily and improving.  I just recenty turned level 32 (amateur).  I checked all over the forums but could not find the answer.

    Why does it give me the "Gimme" option sometimes and sometimes it does not?  I also wonder if the further one rises does the option go away completely.

    You only get gimmees in practice rounds I believe.

    I think its for amateurs and hacks for ranked and practice play, Pro and higher for practice play only.

    Cut & Paste from the NEWS

    You can now take a Gimme for putts that are close to the hole on WGT.

    Gimme Putts are a great way to speed up games on WGT, so when you're short on time, just tap the ball in!

    Hack and Amateur players can take a Gimme when the ball is within 4 feet of the hole, and Pro tier and higher players can take a Gimme when the ball is within 2 feet of the hole.

    Try A Gimme

    Gimmes are available in the following game types on WGT...

    Hack and Amateur players (not in match play games)

    • Stroke Play Practice/Ranked
    • Skins Practice/Challenge

    Pro tier and higher players (not in ranked rounds or match play games)

    • Stroke Play Practice
    • Skins Practice

    Skins Practice/Challenge

    Allowed to have a Self Gimme in any form of the game is not good. You can miss a short putt, but if you click the option of a Gimme, then the game is Wrong, Wrong, Wrong

    If you can take a Gimme in a Challenge match in the lower grades....   well that is basically   Sorry, maybe wrong word to use.

    I can understand if somebody else gives you the putt,  but having a look at the roll of green and click the button yaself is not good.   Bad Idea Wgt

    They give them for the head to head money holes too and it;s a major crock of crap!!! How many times I've hit a beauty of a shot within a few feet of the hole and the other guy hits it say five to six feet away, and he gets a gimme. taking away any chance I had to regain the one stroke i needed.
