    Q. How do I signup for this league and play games?
    There is no "official" signing up, Simply make sure your Leaguegaming Profile has the correct Xbox or PS4 gamer tag in your profile and simply play the rounds/tournaments in The Golf Club. To play, when you boot up "The Golf Club", goto "Play" > "Play Tour" > Search for "LGGT".


    Q. What Type of commitment do i need to make?
    There is zero commitment required. You simply play the tournaments/rounds you can. If you dont play, you wont get any points for those tournaments. Its as simple as that. There is no punishment for not finishing the season or a tournament, making this a play-at-your-own-pace


    Q. When & Where Can i play my rounds?
    Each tournament will be a week long, simply play your round(s) anytime that works for you. You can play alone or with your friends if you like.

    In the game, goto "Play" > "Play Tour" > "More" > Then search for LGGT or the exact tour name for that week.

    Be certain to know if you are on the Silver or Gold Tour. If you're a top TGCTours talent, you'll start in the Gold.


    Q. How do i enter scores/stats?
    Thanks to our friends at HB Studios, you no longer need to worry about this! We have a full API in place that allows us to keep a closer eye on things, while automating the entire process for you. All you need to do is have a properly linked account to LG.

    We do understand the system isn't perfect, as the game has the occasional glitch, but it is a great way

    Q. When will the Tour Week Start?
    Tournaments normally start at 8 AM Eastern on Mondays. They end at 11:59 PM Eastern on Sundays.


    Q. How are courses selected for each Tournament?
    By the community feedback. We will listen closely to courses the community has either played, or created and consider all for our Tour.


    Q. How Long is the Season
    The Season is 16 weeks long and broken down like this, with Majors being done every 4th week. The major is of course worth more "Points Per Player".


    Q. How are points given out for each Tournament?
    We have a custom algorithm, Each tournament will have a "point value" and every member that plays in that tournament adds that value to the Tournaments total pot. From there we divide out the points. For example if the tournament is worth "50 Points Per Player" and there are 200 players, the tournaments total pot is "10,000". From there we curve the points down to the last place player. Everyone who plays will get points , reguardless of the field size so don't get discouraged if you have a bad round or two. For more information please read http://www.leaguegaming.com/forums/showthread.php?206323-LGGT-Point-System


    Q. Will there be mobile app support?
    Yes. For the Android and iOS versions of the LG app. Links to download the app are on the front page of this site.

    I understand from what you are saying, we will be able to play our rounds by ourselves, take pictures, and upload them to the website.

    My question becomes: is it possible to participate in this series on the PS4?

    My reason for asking is that cross platform course sharing is available. It is possible for PS4 users to play the same courses as XBOX users.

    Thanks

    No photos are needed, all scores and stats can be verified in the game and soon with our API
    We want to do a PS4 tour, but it would be a separate league, separate courses, separate stats ect.

    forgive me for asking again (perhaps I missed the answer or didn't understand) - what do we have in place to prevent golfers from just repeating the golf courses multiple times to enter their best score?

    ...also noticed features to invite players and can play a course's round together (unsure of up to how many)...and you don't have to wait for each other to take turns etc...

    - can I suggest that courses must be played at least in 2's or more within the same window?...and both must submit at the end of the round for it to qualify? - just throwing it out there (we can have 100's of golfers with the same result if we all repeat the courses several times)

    @Bottomless Pit


    We setup the tournament IN THE GAME as part of a TOUR, the game tracks who plays. They can't replay the same event over and over.

    No pictures are submitted.

    You'll be able to play with other people if you want, but not required to because there's so submitting score.

    You need to forget everything you knew from VGA or any other golf league and understand that THIS GAME does all that.
    We will just be grabbing the information from within the game and presenting in a mobile app and on the site, in a more customized manner.

    There's been mention of a custom API for our use within the game. I trust that this will happen as Tris has stated, but obviously no one can give any kind of time frame.

    Right now I think we're all hoping for it to be ready by the official LGGT launch, but what is the plan should complications/delays arise?

    Keep in mind - we are all fully confident in Tris' abilities & magic.

    @Bottomless Pit

    Only @Tris10 can answer that, but I'd guess that the absolute worst scenario...you'd have to fill out your scorecard(hole by hole) and submit it. We'd then verify your score against what is in the game.

    Or maybe Tris does something with OCR.

    I think the worse case will be the OCR. Simply record your gamesheet and the OCR SHOULD be able to grab it easily

    How long is a season and what does that mean for the LGGT winner in the next season besides defending his title?
