    Finally made it to Tour Master. Big whoop. All that happened is that the wind doubled and the greens tilted. Strongly considering starting over.

    The higher in tiers you get the harder the game gets. Thats the way it is suppose to be. If you don't like the challenge , may I suggest the game of checkers or maybe a coloring book and some crayola crayons to fill you spare time. Both are easy to do with very little effort. Cheers.

    Its not that bad . All you have to do is learn to adjust to the game . How to use your clubs better by hitting different shots . The best way to learn as you tier up is through stroke play practice rounds . It wont affect your average and you will learn how to adjust to the new playing conditions .

    Start by using the rock just to get the basics down . Then switch to your usual ball once you`re comfortable with what you have learned . Work on how to hit different shots punch pitch flop shots . Also work on your putting and reading the new greens and speeds . You will also have to work on course management since the new winds will also cause you to play the game differently .

    If you take the time and practice as you tier up . You will find the changes arent hard to learn and adjust to .

    If the challenges didn't increase, wouldn't the game just become boring?  I just leveled up to Master a few weeks ago and have to adjust because my tees got longer.  Now I try to play approach shots that can't reach the green to be "full club length" away - 50, 70, 110 yds instead of something like 31 yards, etc.  

    Also consider playing a lot of head to head where the winds/greens are really random.  There are plenty of courses/matches I play with next to no wind and/or flat greens.

    i don’t know ... is that really worth another 8 years, 4 months and over 1300 Ranked Rounds just to get all the way back to Tour Master with a near 72 AVG?? 😖😂😝

    Golf is a skill based SOCIAL game..  When I have arrived at the first tee alone, unless it was an unusual time, I was put into a group. Almost always, when that group finished, a bit of time was spent in the clubhouse conversing about the day. Other days I went off with friends and we enjoyed the round and the time after together.

    WGT is exactly the same, social. Having WGT friends and belonging to a country club makes the game so much more fun. Par4dcours, get some WGT friends and then play multi-player games. Eight years and not one alternate shot game would really get me down. I have no idea how you made it this far.
