⏭ PRO vs MASTER CLUBS
The True Sim Tour considers the most sim approach as using Master clubs. However, we do understand this style of play promotes different styles of play, so we do allow Pro clubs as well. There are some specific instances in which you may not use Pro Clubs:
Start an event with Pro Clubs, then move to Master Clubs at anytime. - Ex: Start Round 1 with Pro Clubs, then Start Round 2 with Master Clubs.
You may not:
Start an event with Master Clubs, then move to Pro Clubs. - Ex: Start Round 1 with Master Clubs, then Start Round 2 with Pro Clubs.
The reason for this is fairly self-explanatory. There would be uproar if you played Master Clubs for all 4 rounds, and lost in the final round because someone chose to switch from Master Clubs to Pro Clubs. It is similar to a foot wedge, or hitting someone else's ball. Please adhere to this rule of golf etiquette.
⏭ TST RANKING (MONEY LIST)
The True Sim Tour ranks it's players by where they are on the money list. Higher up the list, the bigger tournaments you'll be able to enter. Can you be #1 and win the TST Fed Ex Cup at the season's end?
⏭ TST MAIN EVENTS
The True Sim Tour will look to follow the real life schedule as much as possible. The courses chosen will look to replicate those that are played on Tour in real life. There will be a midway cutline of 70 through 2 rounds. *Playoff or count-back method is still being considered for TGC2019 when scores are tied after 4 rounds*.
⏭ TST PLAYOFFS
Unfortunately with TGC2019 we are unable to continue the Playoff format in events. If we do find out the best way to do this, we will be sure to update everyone. ---------------
As usual we wish you good luck, and happy golfing.
