    DuFussMcGoo:
    HOW TO CONTACT WGT IF YOU SUSPECT YOU'RE PLAYING A CHEATER

    This is very informative. I usually just send by gmail.

    For what is worth, Scott would have either a video, with background music, or a power point presentation and a link on his page.

    As unfortunate as it is, there are cheaters in every game and many players do not know how to report it in the terrible event it does happen.

    As many cheaters as we do catch on our end, there are some that slip through and that's where player reporting helps a lot in combatting these.

    What hurts the honest player is the feeling they get when they lose to a HACK or an AMATEUR. You've been playing honest for years and in the Head to Head competition you lose coins to someone who cheats.

    We need to report them to WGT. They can investigate if the player has a 2nd account. I would think there are similar IP numbers, friends, cc's, etc.

    in the tournament now in progress called NORTHERN LIGHTS SHOWDOWN, I counted the number of (maybe?) CHEATERS who "made it" to the Elimination round in the section I'm playing in.

    There were 5. 3 are HACKS and 2 are AMATEURS. Just how could I tell they were cheaters? I can't really. If they are in the Elimination round they made it through the Qualifying round so they had to shoot even par to be in the top 50. Could they do it? Maybe.

    But the funny thing is, these potential cheaters have not played in the Elimination round yet with 15 hours to go.

    It seems their best way to cheat is to wait until the last few hours or so and you won't be caught.

    The cut off for the top 50 right now is -1 with 15 hours to go.

    I'm watching......closely.

    DuFussMcGoo:
    Also, all Topgolf players are identified by their IP number on the SETTINGS page. I would think that an easy way to check out of someone cheats is to find duplicate IP numbers for players.

    I went back to first post and reading all this, I have to ask what your idea is exactly...

    Are you saying people who have started over or have a 2nd account are able to beat you using lesser equipment and balls due to the tee advantage coupled with experience level, and there doing this in coin rooms? 

    I think a lot of people either play the "one hole" for a friend to keep the daily streak alive, have Wives/GFs/Husbands...etc that also play WGT on same connection. Then you have the VPNs that may double sometimes, I think checking Duplicate IPs would catch a lot of fish but most would not be the species you seek.
