    22 Nov 2013

    The WGT Winter Tour continues into Round 2 this week, from 11/18 thru 11/24, with a more challenging single-round format on Bethpage Black. The infamous Black Course hosted the 2010 U.S. Open and will host the 2019 PGA Championship and 2024 Ryder Cup. Its length and small, raised greens make it a true test of golf, real or virtual.

    Round 3 will be played 11/25 thru 11/30 on Merion Golf Club, site of the 2013 U.S. Open, another challenging course for a single-round score, especially putting on those greens. The Top 70 combined scores in each WGT tier will split the WGT Credit purse.

  • TOUR UPDATE: WGT Winter Tour, Nov

    15 Nov 2013

    The first round of the WGT Winter Tour continues on as players compete for a spot among the top 50% in each tier and a chance to advance to Round 2.

    Check out this WGT Winter Tour replay from ianrussell2112 on the 11th hole of St Andrews.

    A traditional links course like St Andrews requires precise shot selection and strong course management. The famous 17th Road Hole at St Andrews is bordered by the road and features a shallow green guarded by a menacing deep bunker.

    When 10-time PGA Tour winner Steve Elkington (@elkpga) recently visited the WGT offices, he explained that depending on the hole location, experienced players often attempt to run the ball up on the right side of the green and play the break, or miss just to the far-left of the green leaving an easy uphill chip shot.

    Remember, Round 1 scores on St Andrews must be posted by 11/17 in order to qualify for Round 2 on Bethpage Black and Round 3 on Merion. The top 70 combined scores in each WGT tier win WGT Credits.
