    I can't fully say how much I am enjoying watching the U.S. Open after playing Bethpage Black in WGT.  It is so surrealistic to see the pros hitting the ball and recognizing every green, fairway, and backgroung shot without ever being there in person.  The green breaks and bunkers are all where we see them when we play on-line and you can appreciate how hard it is for the pros to play after we have "been there" ourselves,  I can't wait until Augusta is on WGT.

    Hi Bigbarry

    I agree with your comments 100%. 

    The coverage down under here in Australia has been great, and it is such a blast to be so familiar with the course, and to see the "real" Pro's really struggling on the same holes that we have. I cant say how much I have enjoyed it - it has been absolutely tremendous.

    Unfortunately I didnt make the cut, my best 72 - but I think I have improved my game no end, trying to beat this beast. I even took a few tips of the real pro's before I had my last round today. +4  I'm afraid, but again some great shots sprinkled in there - amongst some poorer ones.

    A BIG THANK YOU to WGT for this experience. I think they got the realism just about spot on.

    Cant wait for the Masters in Virtual - what a blast that would be.

    Again - many thanks WGt for this incredible experience, I take my hat off to you.

    Keep up the good work, and dont worry about the detractors to much - you will never please everybody.


    Doug  :-)
