    HenryKawa:
    By the way, a few years ago.. maybe 4 o5 5, I played Young46 in a Match Play game, 18 holes, St. Andrew.  It was watched on his channel by many people (highly anticipated game because of some verbal stuff going back and forth about who is better).    I won two of the first 4 holes and was 2UP going forward.    From there, I had a few minor set backs, and he may have caught up to tie the game.  We went into the later holes, and to be honest I cannot remember what happened - who won.  

    I hope he has the game recorded, I would ask him.

    Not exactly. 

    You were 1 up after 4. But you did make it to the 15th hole.

    GAME PLAYED - GAME OVER:

    I would like to congratulate Young46.  He is an excellent player and played a very good game.   For the people who did not watch the live stream, Young46 won the 18 Hole Match Game.   I took the early lead and was 1UP after 4 holes.  Then things started to fall apart.  In the next 11 holes I only managed to win one more hole.   The game lasted 15 holes at which time > It was all over but the crying.   I had nothing to cry about.  I was proud to have lasted 15 holes against such a great player.   Thank you Young46 for giving me the opportunity to play you.  I now bow to the King of WGT.

    It would be nice to see some new members in the Hall of Fame tier.  Maybe at the beginning of 2021?  I'm sure there are some very deserving candidates.

      There definitely are many Sam .

    WGTChampion:

    It's with great pleasure that I get to announce that we have a new elite class called Hall of Fame. This classification will only be given to the best of the best in WGT. 

    We did not want to section Hall of Fame off from the rest of the world, so Hall of Fame players will still play in Tour Champion tier games. We are still defining exactly how we're going to start awarding Hall of Fame to players, but we will have all that sorted out when we start to move select players to Hall of Fame sometime in 2019.

      There has been 1 so far . Let's hope the rest are not forgotten .

    Firstly, I'd like to congratulate, young on getting into the hall, for what ever that's worth. It's Gr8 that he makes videos and tries to help others, too. The problem with all this is, that wgt caters to the pc players. There are a ton of excellent mobile players, that wgt, won't even mention, why? We on the mobile side, have begged and pleaded for some kind of consideration in equalizing this game. If wgt, can configure ways to allow pc players, to compete in mobile games, then why can't we, on mobile, play all the events that the pc players can? This garbage, creates animosity between the 2 formats. Young may, or may not be the best wgt player, but we will never know, because the mobile side, is left out. I'm not trying to take anything away from young, but if they are going to put him on a pedistal, at least make the playing field equal, for all. Wgt, needs to find a mobile player to add to the Hall, to be fair, to all.

    Specifically what events are the Mobile platform players not able to participate in ?

    I was under the impression everything is being geared towards that platform . Isn't that the ultimate goal anyway ?

    Paul, The list is long, and you've been around a long time, if you don't know the differences by now, then I can't help. You seemed to have had all the answers about a year ago, memory must be failing.

      If you are referring to Mobile vs PCEA . I am quite ignorant . I have no experience with Mobile . I have 30 hours attempting PCEA . With no success . It requires a faster internet connection than my current mobile hotspot can provide on my PC with a wifi adapter .

      I do believe that there will never be an equivalent to WGT PC FLASH .

      I think I was merely trying to get you to be more specific . Spell it out for them to know what deficiencies you are troubled by .

      I will leave it alone . This is moot for me . I have no more to input or say here .

    You folks may laugh when I tell you this, but its the truth.  I sent a message to WGT, asking if I should have Hall of Fame Status.  They must be considering it because I have not yet heard back.  If they give it to me, only Young46 and me will have it.  Crossing my fingers!
