It seems like yesterday that players, fans, and all of us at Incredible Technologies were riding high following a successful 2019 GT World Championship at The Orleans Hotel & Casino that culminated with an ecstatic encore presentation on ESPN.
In December of 2019, we announced that the World Championship was coming back in the summer of 2020. Little did we know that the COVID-19 pandemic was on the doorstep, and those plans would be altered again, and again and again. (And again.)
As much as we pushed to reschedule the event in 2021, it simply wasn’t to be. But with the last two years nearly behind us, we’re thrilled to announce that the World Championship event is BACK in 2022 and we’re combining both arcade and mobile into one massive, spectacular event.
Golden Tee Mobile’s World Championship qualifier is wrapping up, and the field is already stacked! Not only have fifteen of the best GT Mobile players in the World qualified, but we have ONE spot open for our very first last chance GTM qualifier that will take place LIVE in Las Vegas.
As for our friends on the arcade side? Get ready.
First, a reminder. If you are one of the 44 players who have already qualified for the event since the beginning of 2020, you’re in. Simple as that.
The field has been bumped up to 96 total players, and qualifying returns with commercial weekly Events starting this coming Monday, November 8.
Five qualifying spots will be awarded each week, temporarily ending with the week of December 13. (We will take a break during the final two weeks of December for the holidays, although commercial players will have one final shot to qualify the week of January 3! What a way to start 2022.)
Home Edition owners don’t fret; we’re giving away four more spots so that all the players who have bought a game in the last year and a half can have their chance to qualify! One spot will be given out per week starting with the Thanksgiving week event on November 22 and continuing through the week of December 13!
A more complete schedule can be found down below.
With the superb stories that Jason Loschiavo, Dave Sandmire and others have brought to us over the years, we had to include some Money $hot contest winners in the World Championship mix! We’re kicking these off in style in a few weeks with special Blackout Wednesday and Black Friday Money $hot contests! This is Golden Tee Christmas after all. On top of that, the winner of our massive Blackout Wednesday Daily Contest will also win a qualifying spot!
We still have plenty to talk about and announce, including our official Las Vegas location and partner, full prize pools (over $150K!), more qualifying chances and the return of our special last chance Closest to the Pin event LIVE in Vegas on Feb 25!
(Hint, hint, it will be more spots than we gave away in 2019.)
But for now, just know that the World Championship is back and it will be absolutely worth the wait!
