Tiger Woods. Jack Nicklaus. Ben Hogan. Soon, you can join these golfing immortals by participating in the Shot Online World Championship. Just don’t expect a large cash prize, fancy trophy, or green jacket.
Webzen’s latest update for Shot Online lets players compete in the Shot Online World Championship (SOWC) in a series of 1v1 matches against players from around the world. You’ll need to be at least level 120 have the title of National Pro I or higher. Rounds are asynchronous, meaning that you don’t have to be online at the same time as your oopponent; instead, you’ll play against a replay of their round. Prevail in a qualifying round to earn the right to compete in a main tournament over a span of three weeks.
In addition to the SOWC, the update includes guild missions for groups of like-minded golfers, and guild agencies, sections of a guild that can leveled separately. Examples include the Hard Course Reinforcement Team and the Product Development team. Each agency contributes to the guild in its chosen specialization.
