     The when bothers me most of the time. I see too many quit while there's still a chance for them to win  

    I'm still learning how to read greens, putting, and chipping. 

     

    A few weeks ago in the Paris room I had an opponent hit tee shot into deep rough on 1st hole. 

     

    They quit on the spot before they even saw me hit. There were 2 holes left after that one  

     

    I want to finish holes to work on getting better in competition. 

     

    I guess I'm using the wrong format for that. 

     

    Just a personal preference

    I guess I'm using the wrong format for that. 

      That's all it is . The wrong format .

      You are on the right track though . You have already played 179 ranked rounds .Presumably WGT Single Player Unlimited Play Stroke Play WGT default conditions .

      Those are your best practice rounds . Except . If you were not in a " DEAD CC " . One with an inactive owner . Essentially making the concept of a CC worthless .

      If you were in an " ACTIVE CC " . One with an active owner . Able to provide information and details . Allocate responsibilities to various directors in different areas . Oversee the making of all tiered tournaments at all times . And other events that the CC prefers as part of their agenda .

      If that were the case . You could play customized versions of the WGT Tournaments you already play . Changing the variables once or twice a week if you wanted to .

      You can do that in an active CC .

      If you want multiplayer competitiveness . There is not a tougher , harder more enjoyable , friendly , competitive format than Multiplayer Stroke Play .

      In the " CREATE A GAME " or " JOIN A GAME " MODES .

        Preferably " CREATE A GAME " So that you can pick the course , the holes , the tiers , the shot clock , and the timeouts , etc .

      Since you probably don't have a slew of friends online at the same time . Looking for a good match .

      Then those modes will find you some very ready and willing , very good players of your same tier . That are complete strangers . But that is a good thing . Because it turns out that they too love some good competitive rounds .

      You will soon find yourself stepping up and finding your game . Playing these harder core players that you didn't even know were out there .

      There is that .

      Or continue to play the " Single Player Unlimited Play Stroke Play " rounds .

      Which probably means something different than you thought .

      In those rounds ( whether they are WGT or CC ) . The idea is to play a front 9 or a back 9 . Trying to get a score lower than your average . Or a score you can live with .But the objective is to lower your average .

      You only complete the 9th or the 18th hole if you like the score . Otherwise you quit or restart the round at any hole before the end of the 9th or 18th . And you do that as many times as you want . 100 times if need be . Until you get a score that you can live with .

      This format is the only one that has a restart button . To quickly restart the round .

      This " Single Player Unlimited Play Stroke Play ". and " Multiplayer Stroke Play " .

      Are the only formats where all your statistics count .

    Stroke Play Score Average
    Best 9-Hole Round
    Best 18-Hole Round
    Total Ranked Rounds Played
    Total Holes-In-One
    Total Double Eagles
    Total Eagles
    Total Birdies
    Total Pars
    Total Bogeys
    Total Double Bogeys
    Total Others
    Par 3 Score Avg.
    Par 4 Score Avg.
    Par 5 Score Avg.

    Skill Challenge Avg. Score

      And many more if you check your AWARDS list .

      And affects your average as well . NO OTHER FORMATS DO THAT .

      So my suggestion to you is to quit your CC first and foremost . Go to Country Club Corner . Read about all the hundreds of fantastic CC's . Message the owner of one .

      Depending on if you get or what type of a response you get . Will yell you if it is good for you . At least to check out for a while . If it works . And is very active . You will have the best time you can have in WGT .

    More links to read .

    Caver, as pdb1 stated, coin games are not always the best format for reaching those goals.  And he raises some very good points about your being in a dead CC.  It looks like your CC owner started the club back in Oct 2018 and quit playing 8 days later.  He has not been seen since.

    If you'd like to join a more active CC, I'd suggest looking at the recruiting posts in Country Club Corner.  There are many active CCs there who I'm sure would welcome you.

    Whatever you decide... best of luck to you and enjoy your game ­čśü

    I have found out that they take forever to load. There's a program they are using they generate credits and coins and have to buy the best putter they can. Also they all almost have 150 averages and no stats. ask them if they are using swing master or always ding program and see if there game all of a sudden goes like poop. they almost always put the second shot right next to the hole. it screws my day up when you get beat by cheaters when you always pay your real money not computer generated money. I right all there names down while playing. and just keep asking wich program they are using. they soon will quit and back out rather than quit the right way. So that waste your coin game 30 minutes,

    BillyGore:
    both times he has quit on the first hole and the game tells me that I have forfeited and the game is over. T

    If you're playing Head to Head, click on the little gear thing right next to EXIT. Then click on HELP CENTER, then CONTACT US and explain what happened. WGT will get back to you within a day and refund your coins. Try it even if it happened a few weeks ago (it can't hurt).

    I reported the player who is a two account holder , who as a pro playing less than a week , scored -12 !! But WGT haven’t responded , they don’t seem to care , maybe it’s because his alter ego benefactor has bought thousands of credits worth of equipment, balls and boosters , , both accounts have been reported . Shame the cheater has walked away with third place in the showdown

    Give me the details and I'll report the cheat. I don't seem to have your problem with WGT action.

    What happens, do they get back to you or is the name no longer searchable?

    I wouldn't say we are encouraged to report those we suspect of cheating by the way wgt handle it when we do.

    My son and I sometimes play this silly game on the phone, he noted something suspicious and asked me to report it and I did.

    I got this reply:

    I do realise EA are a massive company and have teams to deal with all sorts but they will also have more customers so more to deal with too.
    The point was there were replies and even encouragement in them that what you are doing is a good and helpful thing.  Here my impression is that cheat reports are a hassle.  To "the account started 3 days ago and he shot 58 on Pinehurst", "We need proof of cheating before we can take any action" would be the likely response.  And of course they're right a good score can never be absolute proof of cheating but the idea is they take it from there, as with the EA response.  We don't have access to the information that WGT has but they certainly could be more encouraging to us to point them in the right direction. 
    Yes there would be vendettas and sore losers with silly reports but wgt should be able to spot them.
    My only criticism of EA was this mouthful  it will be forwarded to the relevant channel so that it can reach the concerned team. ;-/
