    Guess there's a need 4 some kind of a HoF. Since WGT hasn't any plans 2 come with a HoF (see: why not do it ourselves.

    It's just a start. Imho at least the Majorwinners should be in. Guess there's other players who deserve 2 be placed on the HoF. Any suggestions are welcome.

    Since I'm not a photoshopgenious (the contrary would be more appropriate ;-), it would be nice if someone with DTP experience can make a more professional looking HoF which can serve as the HoF in the first post. Or perhaps even better, a kinda HTML/Flashbased HoF, which can be updated and edited easily. And when clicking on it a larger version will appear....just thinking ;-) Please feel free 2 let me know when you're the man/woman 4 this job.

    Cheers, GC


    Edit 04-26-2012

    As you can see in the opening post I've made a division between the Hall of Fame and other notable achievements/tournaments. All important tournaments have been listed. I think that's it 4 now. I'm still looking 4 some tournament leaderboard links though. Please submit if you have them cause it ain't possible 2 get it from WGT anymore. Do you think there's other important tournaments still missing, please let me now.

    As far as the stats concerned, I've 2 apalogize 4 the moment. Right now it ain't possible 4 WGT 2 provide them. If there's news about this, I'll let you know.

    Thx 4 all your contributions (sofar)!

    Cheers, GC


    Edit 04-27-2012

    Thx 2 genorb all tournament leaderboards are available. Think we're complete now.

    Cheers, GC


    Edit 05-04-2012

    New tournaments have been added including some non-WGT tournaments. Also added "lowest average".

    Cheers, GC


    Edit 05-07-2012

    "Lowest round on WGT" added + Honoarable Mention 4 RUNWME 4 a 1st ever sub 50 round + Tournament results added and updated.

    Cheers, GC


    Edit 05-08-2012

    "Most successful CC'' added + 3 new stats: submitted Longest drive, putt and approachshotHere's how it works. When you've a replay of a drive over 430 yds, a putt over 250ft, or a holed approachshot over 250yds, please submit the replay and it will be registrated in the OP. It has 2 be in a ranked round and in your stats 2. Not sure about the final format but I'm thinking of a Top3 4 each category.

    Cheers, GC


    Edit 05-10-2012

    No submissions yet 4 the 3 new stats categories (see above). Thinking of starting a seperate thread 2 get more attention 4 this. Already have done some research myself 4 longest putt. Has been added.

    Cheers, GC


    Edit 05-15-2012

     "Top 10  longest holed app. shot" added + some modifications.

    Cheers, GC


    Edit 05-16-2012

    "Top 5 longest drive"added, based on What's your longest drive?? Thread. Please submit (including the replay) your longest drive, putt, app shot when it's better than the current scores and it will be placed in the relevant Top5/Top10.

    Cheers, GC


    Edit 05-29-2012

    Wanna give it a try 2 start with courserecords. This 1 is tricky cause there's different variables (tees, greenspeed, wind) and it's hard 2 keep an eye on all low scores posted. 2 keep things simple I'll start with absolute low scores. Already have 2 4 sure, that's both 49's on KI and Cabo. Others I'm not sure of so please help me if you can.

    Cheers, GC


    Edit 06-04-2012

    dansamcam 1st player 2 break 54.00 Average. Tournaments updated. Courserecords (unconfirmed) + links added. Please let me know when there's lower scores.

    Cheers, GC


    Edit 06-06-2012

    Countdown clock 2 VUSO added - only 11 days 2 go + New section 'various' added including '49'cartoons + CR Whistler added: 54 in a RG, not sure though it's the lowest score. 

    Think it's nice 2 have CR's 4 Best of Hardest and Famous holes 2. Please submit.

    Cheers, GC


    Edit 06-11-2012

    Some non-WGT tournaments added + CR BOFH: 53. Still don't have the CR 4 BOHH, please submit (inluding the link) when you know about a 54 score or lower.

    ATTENTION: Wanna ask all of you 2 check the stats overhere and reply in this thread, or post a message on my wall, when you know about better scores than mentioned, thx.


    Note: Guess I have 2 make something more clear about this thread, cause I've noticed some confusion. It's called "presenting: WGT Hall of Fame......and all notable results & achievements". 

    That means this thread has 2 sections, 1) The HOF and 2) notable results & achievements.

    Right now as you can see at the start of this thread, there's only 6 players in the HOF itself, i.e. the Major-winners and the extraordinary Legend, the 'godfather of WGT', tibbets. All other players in the Opening Post of this thread are in there cause of  "notable results & achievements", so that ain't a part of the actual HOF itself

    Think a HOF is something special and we should keep it like that. My idea is that every Major-winner is in there and maybe some other players who have achieved something extraordinary. Not sure what that will be, but it has 2 be really special....E.g. a 'player of the year' elected by other players might be a possible contender.

    Well...., hopefully that clarifies the most ;-). When you still have any question or suggestion, please tell me.

    Cheers, GC


    Edit 06-14-2012

    "WGT Nation Tournaments" added + Course homepages added + all links revisited - opening in new tabs.

    Cheers, GC

    Nice work GC.

    Can you make the various Majors text links to the final tournament standings? (Not to be a PITA, but this also seems like it might be a good thread to add "Course Records", though that might be impossible)

    Very nice initiative on your part and a good idea to boot.

    Alright, I've had too much coffee and now I can't shut up. I have another idea...

    With regard to player of the year honors, instead of making an arbitrary decision that virtually assures dissent, what if it was like a coach's poll or a sportswriter's poll.

    Take Genorb's top 100 list for a specified date (Jan 1st, for example) and let the top 100 vote on POY honors.

    3 pts for a first place vote

    2 pts for a second place vote

    1 pt for a third place vote

    Tally up the votes, whoever has the most points, as voted on by their peers, is the POY.

    Thx fellas 4 your nice replies. I would love 2 link the Majors 2 the final standings but its hard 2 find them. They ain't available in "tournament results" anymore. Searched the forums a bit but havent found them yet. Any tips about this are welcome as well as any info about "course records". Perhaps Icon would love 2 give us some info ;-)

    I just sent you a bunch of links. I didn't find all of them but severals (I am sure gifted members can find the missing links). I have also links for the various open/US open CTTH. I think the winner deserve also to be in this hall of fame.
