    Had a guy get upset I was winning so he used maximum shots and time in each one. Must have took me over an hour for the last 5 holes. I have screen shots.

    You can send an email to members@worldgolftour.com. You could try contacting the moderator, and Community Organizer, Nico, on the WGT discord, but I think this may be something better to report to member support (IMO).

    That's nasty, but if he stayed in the game it wasn't illegal. What should WGT do about him?

    I'd rather propose that you "block and forget" him, from his profile or from your account.

    Technically you’re correct as there’s no rule against using your entire shot time. But if the player is purposefully making repeated bad shots to run each hole up to 10 strokes then that’s something that could be deemed unwarranted.
    Also, blocking a player doesn’t stop the game from matching you with them again.

    But it may have gone against what's in the guidelines, depends on your interpretation I guess.

     

    Sportsmanship

    Our community is passionate about golf, and the spirit of competition thrives at WGT. No matter how passionate or competitive, however, players are expected to demonstrate sportsmanship at all times. Outbursts of temper and otherwise belligerent and disruptive behaviors are unacceptable.

    Penalties for Breach

    If a player disregards these guidelines or our Terms & Conditions, WGT may take disciplinary action against the offending player. Disciplinary actions may include prohibiting play for a limited time, disabling certain features, or permanent banning.

    It seems to me he does this often. I don’t want him dong it to others and basically extorting coins from people doing this.

    If he was in a CC I would have contacted the owner. Been my experience in other games that "leaders" don't take kindly to bad press!

    Good points, both of you!

    Still, WGT's action is limited against paying clients...
