  • April Winner’s Circle is Live 🎯

    06 Apr 2022

    Celebrate the beginning of golf season with a brand new Winner’s Circle!

    To play, land your ball in one of the colored rings surrounding the cup by taking one shot from the fairway of the 2nd hole at Erin Hills. To maximize competition, all players will be using special Winner's Circle clubs.

    If you land your ball in one of the rings or in the hole you’ll win prize chests, which include items like apparel packs, sleeves of golf balls and more. Each prize chest is coordinated to match a ring of the same color on the green. 

    A few things to know:

    • All players will use the same exclusive Winner’s Circle-branded club set

    • The hole, pin placement, green speed and wind rating will not change from one shot to the next, however you may see slight wind direction and wind speed changes

    • If the timer expires before you take your shot, that shot will be lost

    • Winner's Circle is a limited-time event, so any remaining shots will stay in your inventory and can be used in future events (*excludes free shots that are only available during that event)

    Good Luck!

    *This event runs 4/6/22 to 4/10/22 and is open to all WGT players.
