Why doesn't my average change?
Depending on what game modes are played, a player's average and stats may not change. A player's average and stats only change during Single Player ranked matches and Multiplayer Tournaments. Ranked rounds on "Best of" courses do not count toward a player's average.
To play a single player ranked round:
- Tap the GAME MODES button on the main menu
- Choose SINGLE PLAYER STROKE PLAY
- Choose a course you would like to play and then select Front 9, Back 9, or Full 18
To ensure the round is ranked and will count toward your average and stats, before selecting TEE OFF, make sure that RANKED is highlighted on the left side of the screen.
Selecting a 3-hole game will lock the round to Practice. Additionally, most Stroke Play Tournaments played on courses other than "Best of" and Custom Courses count as ranked rounds.
How do I advance to the next tier?
Tier advancement is a combination of a player's scoring average and the number of ranked rounds played in their current tier.
I recently advanced in tier and now my average has gone up, why?
A player's average is based on the ranked rounds they have played within their current tier. When a player advances to a new tier, their ranked rounds within the new tier starts over at zero and their average resets to reflect the scores in the new tier. Players may see a large difference in their average after their first ranked score in the new tier, depending on that score.
What is XP and how do I get it?
XP stands for Experience Points. This is what you earn after every game played, and what your character uses to reach the next level.
You can view your current progress toward the next level by selecting your profile photo in the top right of the main menu. At the top of the profile box is your XP bar, with a counter that shows how much XP you have accumulated over time and how much is needed to reach the next level.
Can I receive bonus XP?
Yes! By playing at least once a day, you will earn the Consecutive Days Played bonus. Each consecutive day you play will award bonus XP to your player for your first game of the day.
The daily timer is based on UTC (Universal Time), so it does not reset at midnight. Be sure to keep an eye on the timer so you don't miss it!

Event goals are challenges tied to a specific in-game event like a Showdown or Winner's Circle.
What are Stars?

What kind of rewards can I earn by completing goals?
Players can earn several types of items by completing goals, including WGT Credits, WGT Coins, XP, and apparel packs.

Are there any game modes that won't count toward goals?

For goals that do not require a specific game mode to complete, the only game modes that won't apply toward your progress are single-player practice games that include the mulligan feature.

Every team begins with a number of Superpasses determined by their club level. The BENEFITS tab in the Country Club menu will indicate how many Superpasses a club will begin with in a Clash event. Additionally, any Turf War events won by a club since the last Clash event will give additional passes for the Clash.
The Superpasses your club has during the first club vs club contest will only be available for that first contest, so be sure to use as many as you can. In each subsequent Clash your club will be given 2 Superpasses to use.
Superpasses are not distributed to individual players, but given to the whole club. This means that any player that has permission from the club owner (set in the club owner's tools) are able to use Superpasses.
Superpasses cannot be purchased.
How do I use a Superpass?
If you have permission from the club owner and there are Superpasses available, you will receive a pop-up message at the beginning of your clash game to use a Superpass.

What are Turf Wars?

How do I start a Turf War?
To begin a Turf War, the club must use twice as many club passes as there are members. For example, if there are 50 members in a club, 100 passes must be used before the club can Activate a Turf War. This is called the Call-to-Arms phase.
Once the club has used the number of passes needed, it will be able to select ACTIVATE on the Turf War card on the main menu. If the Turf War card is not showing, it can also be activated in the Country Club Menu.

What happens if a Club Event starts before my Turf War ends?
If you have an active Turf War when a Clash event starts, your Turf War will continue regularly, but your club will not be able to activate a new Turf War until the Clash event is over.
Any passes used while a Clash event is active will not count toward the Call-to-Arms phase.
What types of tournaments are in WGT?

Not all leaderboards use a "top 70" structure. Some leaderboard tournaments have custom prize settings. These can be found in the tournament rules or the prize description for that tournament.
What is a Ready-Go Tournament?
A Ready-Go tournament is a 50-player leaderboard tournament where the top 30 players receive prizes. As soon as 50 players enter the tournament, it will be closed for new entries and a new tournament will automatically become available to join.
After joining a Ready-Go tournament, players will have 24 hours to post their score to the leaderboard.
How are Ready-Go tournament winners awarded?
Standing Percentage of Purse (Example. 100 credit entry fee, excluding ties) 1st 15.00% (600 credits) 2nd 10.00% (400 credits) 3rd 7.50% (300 credits) 4th 6.25% (250 credits) 5th - 10th 5.00% (200 credits) 11th - 15th 2.50% (100 credits) 16th - 30th 1.25% (50 credits)
What is a Bracket Tournament?
A Bracket Tournament is a multi-round tournament that places entrants into head-to-head style matchups where the winner of each match moves to the next round.
When the bracket completely fills, the round timers begin. Be sure to complete your round within before time runs out and keep an eye on when the next round starts!
How are Bracket tournament winners awarded?
In brackets that have credit prizes, the award structure is:
- 1st Place: receives 50% of the total prize purse
- 2nd Place: receives 30% of the total prize purse
- 3rd & 4th Place: each receives 10% of the total prize purse
What is a Shot Clock Tournament?
A Shot Clock Tournament challenges players to complete each shot within a set amount of time. Any of the previously mentioned tournaments can be designated as a Shot Clock Tournament. Shot Clock Tournaments can be identified by a shot clock icon on the tournament art and info.
What is a Set of the Week Tournament?
A Set of the Week Tournament forces all entrants to use a special set of clubs for the specific tournament. In this case, the Set of the Week clubs are provided by WGT and the player does not need to purchase special equipment.
Any tournament can be designated as a Set of the Week tournament, and is identified by a special club icon on the tournament art and info.
How are ties handled in tournaments?
In the event of a tie, placement on the leaderboard of the tied entrants is determined by the following tiebreakers in order until leaderboard placement is determined:
- The lowest combined score for the final nine (9) holes.
- The lowest combined score for the final six (6) holes.
- The lowest combined score for the final three (3) holes.
- The lowest score for the 18th hole (9th for 9-hole games).
- The lowest scoring entrant for each individual game hole, in sequence from 17th (8th for 9-hole games) through to 1st.
- If any ties still remain, the earlier-submitted entry will be deemed the better scoring entry.
If multiple players tie for the same place, unless otherwise noted in the tournament rules and prizing, the credits awarded will be added up and divided by the number of tied players. For example: if three players tie for 2nd place, the credits awarded for places 2, 3, and 4 will be totaled and divided by three so each of the players tied for 2nd place receive the same amount of credits. 5th place will then get the correct 5th place percentage.
First place will always be determined as a single winner using the tiebreakers above.
Why do I see a player in a tiered leaderboard that does not belong to that specific tier?
When players enter a tiered tournament they are locked to the leaderboard associated with the tier they are in when they first enter the tournament.
For example: if an Amateur player enters a tiered tournament they will be added to the Amateur tier leaderboard for that tournament. If that player is promoted to Pro while the tournament is active they will continue to play on the Amateur leaderboard until the tournament is completed but can no longer enter any new Amateur tournaments.
What is a Showdown?
A Showdown is a 3-round head-to-head stroke play event where players can win prizes based on leaderboard placement. A player will advance to the next round by finishing in the top 50% of their leaderboard. In the final round, placement determines the player's prize. All players that make it to the final round of the tournament will win prizes.
In a Showdown players compete in multiple head-to-head games to post their scores to the Showdown leaderboard. Any unfinished or unplayed holes at the end of the round timer will be scored as bogeys.
How do I advance to the next round of a Showdown?
A player advances to the next round of the Showdown by finishing in the top 50% of their leaderboard. Players below the cut line will be eliminated from the round.
If I don't make the cut can I play again?
The Qualifying Round consists of 3 single-day cycles where players who are eliminated can reenter the tournament and try again in other days of the Qualifying Round. For example, if a player enters day 1 of the Qualifying Round and is eliminated, they can enter again in day 2. After the 3rd day of the Qualifying Round eliminated players will no longer be able to re-enter.
Players who finish in the top 50% of their leaderboard will advance to the next round. Once a player has qualified for the next round, they do not need to play in any remaining days of the Qualifying Round.
What happens if I don't complete my Showdown round?
If a player does not finish their round, all unplayed holes will be scored as bogeys.
What are the three levels of the Showdown and how are they different?
The three levels of the Showdown are Rookie, Veteran, and Expert.
Players who enter higher levels of the Showdown pay a higher fee to enter the tournament, play against more experienced users, and win bigger prizes.
What kind of prizes can I win in a Showdown?
Players have a chance to win credits, coins, apparel, golf balls, and other gear. Check the prize tab in the Showdown to see the prizes you can win in that specific Showdown. Sometimes players can even win special or exclusive items.
How are Showdown ties handled?
If two players are tied in a Showdown, leaderboard placement is determined by:
- Number of Showdown holes completed
- Score of final Showdown game
- Score of second-to-last Showdown game
- Score of third-to-last Showdown game
- Number of Double Eagles scored in Showdown
- Number of Eagles scored in Showdown
- Number of Birdies scored in Showdown
- First to complete Showdown round
What is Winner's Circle?
Winner's Circle is a limited time event that tests player accuracy. Each Winner's Circle event will take place on a single hole and can be played one shot at a time. The goal of the event is to win prizes by landing your ball in the cup or the surrounding colored rings. Each ring has its own prize chest, and the top prize is won by hitting the ball into the cup.
Prizes for each ring can be viewed by selecting any of the colored chests from the Winner's Circle menu.
How long does a Winner's Circle event last?
Winner's Circle events can vary in length. The timer on the main menu screen will show you how long you have left to play in each event.
Can I win more than one prize?
Yes! You can win all of the available prizes once per event.
What happens when I land the ball in a specific ring?
When you land your ball in any of the rings, you'll win the prize chest of the same color.
If you land in the outermost ring, it will be removed, making the target area smaller. If you land in one of the inner rings, the adjacent outer ring will expand to take its place, keeping the target area the same size.
For example, if you land in the Emerald ring, that ring will be removed from your target. If the Sapphire ring (the adjacent outer ring to Emerald) is still available, it will expand to include the original Emerald ring area to take its place and keep the overall target the same size.
There will never be a blank gap between rings.
Do course conditions change from one shot to the next?
The hole, pin placement, green speed, and wind rating will not change from one shot to the next. The only thing that can change is the wind direction and slight wind speed changes (within the posted wind speed rating, ex: LOW or HIGH).
You can view the wind and green speed details in the lower left of the Winner's Circle menu.
What happens if the timer expires on my Winner's Circle shot?
If the timer expires before you take your shot, you will be returned to the main menu and that shot will be lost.
What happens if I still have Winner's Circle shots when the event ends?
Any remaining shots will remain in your inventory and can be used in the next event. This excludes any "free" shots which do not carry over to future events, so be sure to use those each time!
Do I use my own equipment for Winner's Circle?
All players will use the same Winner's Circle-branded club set. These clubs are exclusive to Winner's Circle events and cannot be purchased in the Pro Shop.
