    Hey all,

    I started playing WGT around Xmas 2020 and proceeded reasonably well so far (Master, L81).

    Yet, I see little challenges at this stage, as level progression is getting slow and equipment making a real difference being available only in L95+. (I purchased quite some stuff in the 40/50s which helped a lot.)

    Playing tournament after tournament is ok, but with only some 10 courses available getting repetitive. Matchplay still isn't that great an option, as competitors often are L100+ players - little perspectives there...

    Any tipps and hints on how to spicen up the experience till you hit ~ L95?


    Cheers and great game!

    The ''real'' fun begins at Legend when purses begin to be worth it. Many exclusive Legend tournaments are available. During that time you can always play Master tournaments with good prizes money to spice up challenges.

    At L85 you can buy the best iron set for his era. This will give you a boost to rank up a bit more. The gap between Master and Legend can be quite short if you shoot ranked games 60 or under consistently.


    Good luck!

    A very good piece of advice right there.

    You can now get all of your forever wedges. The Titlest 56, 60, and 64 degree wedges have the very same specs as the old Cleveland wedges that were top rated by many of the best players here. Fmagnets and sebicu both carry them. These wedges are available from levels 76 to 80. 

    A lot of the fun of WGT for some of us really comes from social interaction. If your country club uses a chat app such as Discord or Telegram it is easy to set up games with other members.  Oral chat using  Discord then ups the fun factor and can continue long after the game.

    Along with other advice, just taking the time to learn all the shots you can play with those wedges should keep it fun and interesting for quite awhile. 

    It depends on what you want out of playing this game, but if becoming a real good player is something you want, you still have a lot to learn. Learning to play different type shots in different situations can be a lot of fun. After nearly 7500 ranked rounds, I still find it fun to try new shots and to find a better way to play.

    Like others have mentioned, there can be a lot of fun playing multiplayer games and other formats as well. If you look around, there are tons of fun ways to play this game. Many country clubs have a lot of fun things happening and have added fun with the communication within the club.

    You can also play on the S S WGT Tour if you like. Follow that link for all you need to know. It is nothing terribly exciting, but adds some communication with others and a sense of community. A new tournament just started this week.

    EDIT: Forgot to mention... That Tour uses handicaps. So it gives new players a very good chance at success.

    In addition to the suggestions above, this is what I'd suggest:

    1.  Play some multi-player games with others - AS, stroke play, match, skins.

    2.  Join a CC that has special tournaments and events going on.  Read the recruiting posts under Country Club Corner and join one that looks like it might be fun.
