Ok, here we go:

Tournament is double elimination. You play one on one against someone else, based on the brackets below.

It is up to you to set up a time to play against your opponent. If it doesn't look like this will be possible, the back up plan is this: send me a message on the wgt site that you are about to play. Your next round will then be your score. I want to discourage this unless a one on one match really can't happen.

All games should be "ranked."

You can only use club/ball upgrades that you bought with credits earned from playing. If you are a high roller who threw down $3 for a fancy putter - I won't allow you to buy a title. This is not MLB.

I will announce the course to be played before each round. Don't play ahead. I won't count it.

If you get disconnected / have to get a crying baby and you can't play in time, try to work it out with the person you are playing. The best solution is to record your score through how ever many holes you have finished, then hook up later. At that point, start a new game and get back to where you were (without counting the holes you have already played.) Then finish your round.

TIES: We are using a sudden death format. If your round ends in a tie, start a new one on the same course. Keep playing until someone wins a hole.

Report your scores here in this thread.

Seedings will be announced this evening based on your rankings at 5:00 EDT.

Below are the brackets. Circled black numbers are where the 10 players will be seeded based on their rankings.

Because this is a double elimination tournament, there is also a loser's bracket. Note that each match in the winner's bracket has a blue letter. If you lose that match, you go down to the corresponding slot in the loser's bracket. For example: If you lose match "D" (between the 4 and 5 seed,) you slip down to the slot marked "LD" in the loser's bracket.




If you have questions or think something needs to clarified, post here.

There is a chance I have not thought of everything. If something comes up, all decisions will be made by a panel consisting of me.


Edit #1: added info for ties.
Edit #2: changed format to 9 person (not worth creating new brackets.)

this will be fun. thanks for setting up.

i think you should be allowed to buy an upgrade here or there. some of us, who just picked up the game the other day and haven't had time to earn anything will have a major disadvantage regardless. maybe there should be a cap on how many points you can use or something? plus if you are like me and you have only played a handful of times, you are not allowed to buy fancy clubs anyway because of your status/level in the game. i mean isn't that how the game tries to even out the field a bit anyway?

i haven't earned anything only playing a handful or times, what fun is it gonna be to compete with a 215 yd driver?

I'm for this. I'm working on my ranking while football plays in the background. I might be the only person with a bought upgrade and, I have to say, I'm fine with not using my new fairway wood but I also have to say, it hasn't helped at all!

mean, respekt.

whats the best way to improve your ranking? stroke play? the closest-to-the-whole thing? Also, can you eventually unlock stroke play on the other courses - i only have stroke play on bethpage and kiawah.

Also, im still hitting from the easiest tees? does this change when you advance? cuz that would solve the club quality disparity.

Well, you will also be hitting from the shorter deals. I thought about this, but if you want a better shot, keep playing and get up for the next tournament.

I don't know if CTTH does anything with your ranking. Stroke play definitely does.

That's all they have right now. St. Andrews should be done around the end of the year.

Yes. You get moved back as you move up in rankings.
