  • WGT Tournaments Go International

    10 Nov 2008

    Since WGT players from the United Kingdom, Germany and Canada became eligible to compete in WGT tournaments on November 1, we've gotten many questions about when eligibility will open for other countries. As you can imagine, different countries have different requirements for contest and sweepstakes, but we are steadily working through them to open up to as many countries as we can. Stay tuned, because there are definitely more to come!
