A New Way to Compete, Connect & Entertain 

These are unprecedented times. We’re surrounded by uncertainty and learning how to adapt to our new reality. For a lot of us, this has meant working remotely while managing bored kids. We could all use a happy distraction.

 

With that in mind, those of us at aG were inspired to offer a new global competition you can play in the comfort of your home. In order to participate in this competition, you’ll need an online aG account login and your simulator must be connected to the Internet. See below for instructions.

FAQS

Are there requirements for my aG Links simulator?


Yes. The one aG Links simulator requirement for online competition is that it be connected to the Internet.




What username and password do I use for aG Locker?


  1. Any player who has an online account in aG Links or has logged into aG Data should use the same username and password for their aG Locker account. The same online account spans across our platform to give customers continuous access to the Modern Golf experience.
  2. If you’ve never used an online account, you’ll need to set up a new username and password using the instructions outlined above. We recommend doing this in aG Locker. Remember, the same credentials will be used to log into aG Links online when you compete.




Are there age or any other restrictions on who can participate?


Yes. Players must be 18 or older to qualify for prizes. For additional rules and regulations, see our full list below.




If I need help, who can I call or email?


Email support@aboutgolf.com or call 1-800-445-GOLF. Our normal hours of operations for Technical Support are Monday through Friday, 8am-8pm PST and 8am-11pm EST. You may also contact us using the new client Help Desk Portal! We will do our best to respond in a timely manner to resolve any questions, concerns, or issues you may be experiencing.




Can I invite friends to compete on my aG Links simulator?


Absolutely! The more the merrier. Be sure to instruct them to set up their aG Locker account ahead of time so it’s easier for them to register for the event, log into aG Links for their turn, and view the leaderboard.




Can I log in multiple times to take more than 5 shots?


No.




Do I need to use aG Locker to register for the tour?


No, but we recommend using aG Locker because the process is simple. An aG Locker account is also a requirement for qualifying for any aG Tour grand prizes. We do provide alternative methods for people without access aG Locker and the instructions are above.




Can my customers participate at my commercial facility?


Yes. The aG Alpha Home Tour is open to anyone with access to an aG Links simulator. If you’re an aG Partner, contact us at partners@aboutgolf.com for materials to help you market this event for your location.




What happens if I win?


You'll hear from the aG tour manager about next steps. Be sure to check your inbox and your junk folder. We need a response in order to process your winnings.




My Screen froze so I backed out of the event. Can I still compete, or did I lose my 5 shots?


If you took any shots and they were captured on the leaderboard prior to the screen freezing, you may not retake those shots. Once shots are recorded, your available shots count down until all 5 chances are used. If you didn’t take any shots prior to the screen freezing, you can still log into the event and take all 5 shots.




My wife wants to compete. How do we select ladies’ tees?


The yardage for each competition is set and can’t be changed. All participants play from the same tees.




Is there a faster way to log in to compete?


Want to log into aG Links in seconds? If you have aG Links 1500 or 1600, a QR scanner will do the trick! Simply plug it in and tap SIM LOGIN in aG Locker to scan your code.




Where can I get a QR Scanner so I can log in to Links via my Locker 2.0 app?


We recommend the Symcode Omnidirectional Hands-Free USB Bar Code Reader. You can find it on Amazon here or through several other online retailers.
