  • TOUR UPDATE: WGT Winter Tour, Oct

    11 Oct 2013

    A weekly update from the WGT Winter Tour... Still time to enter!

    In this first tour stop for October, WGT players are posting their best scores on historic Pebble Beach to qualify for the two championship rounds the last two weeks in October, and win part of the double WGT Credit purse.

    Players are competing against other players in the same WGT tier (Pro, Tour Pro, Master, Tour Master, Legend, Tour Legend) in this closest-to-the-hole tournament, trying to place in the top 50% of scores to make the first-round cut.

    The Qualifier round on Pebble is open now thru Thu 10/17, and it's unlimited so you can play again to post your best score, with the top 50% of scores in each tier moving on to the two single-play championship rounds. Round 2 on Harbour Town runs 10/18-10/24, and Round 3 on Wolf Creek runs 10/25-10/31, both more challenging single-play rounds to determine the final combined scores. The top 70 combined scores in each tier earn the WGT Credit prizes.

    Here are the current leaders by tier. Keep in mind that these are Closest-to-the-Hole scores, so the scores are the combined distance from the hole for the 9 challenge holes...

    • Tour Legend: dansamcam, USA – shot a 35
    • Legend: mapewest, Italy – shot a 35
    • Tour Master: cbmeise, USA – shot a 41
    • Master: Matterpat, USA – shot a 33
    • Tour Pro: L1hm, USA – shot a 55
    • Pro: dtbrown757, Canada – shot a 66

    View Leaderboards

    Don't forget to play and post your score before the cut on 10/17. And everyone gets a free TaylorMade Lethal virtual golf ball just for entering. Good luck, and stay tuned for updates on the WGT Winter Tour...
