Special Thanks to GreyBeard here for allowing us to host this Excel Spreadsheet containing the following, for those interested in the VT/CM within Links 2003.

It features the following:

    Written in Excel 97.
    Automated with button activation of macros and clear instructions on usage throughout.
    Complete 195 player PGA Roster with current world rankings
    Players rated for IRL PAR 3/4/5 performance
    Ability to re-create a complete Season of Tournaments.
    Tournaments may be inserted, venues decided etc during the course of the season.
    Tournaments consist of from 1 to 5 rounds, with an optional CUT after any round.
    Multi venue Tournaments (e.g. Bob Hope Chrysler Classic) supported.
    Full user discretion as to how and where to make the cut.
    Eligibility based on money list or world ranking position (simplified eligibility rules).
    Additionally you can play against entire roster, Top 144, Top 96, Top 64 or Top 32 players (ordered by World Ranking or Money List)
    Ability to set Purse for each tournament.
    Purses are distributed using PGA post 1979 rules (18% for winner etc)
    Can set course conditions to Hard, Normal, or Easy to reflect round by round conditions
    Can set individual holes to Hard, Normal,or Easy
    Can set game Balance from very easy to very hard.
    Advanced options to increase/decrease the effect of difficulty settings.

    Sudden Death play off mechanism
    Tournament histories can be created and printed.
    Money Winners List
    Top Ten Finish competitions supported (e.g. West Coast Swing etc...)

Possible Future Features...

In about six months time I will look at this again...

    Revamp of the Play Off function
    Import & export of Comma Separated Variable text files for interface into other spreadsheets / programs
    More than a single human player tracked
    Q-Schools (or at least an ability to pick from the bottom of the money list)
    Stableford Scoring (as used at Castle Pines)
    Automation of cut rules to PGA standard If there is a demand... versions for Champions Tour, LPGA, and possibly (depending on access to the right statistics) other Tours. Maybe composite 'World Tour' or selected historic 'great' PGA years (again depending on availability of stats)

GBVT 6.0 is taking GBVT to a new level. The latest version includes among many other things -

Player Stats
Tournaments will have a strong or weaker field depending on the purse
User maintained sponser's excemption limitation
Redesign of player's chance to enter a tourney to be based on WGR
Players and their PGA stats updated as of the 2005 Tour Championship

Also, GBVT now has an add-on as a separate spreadsheet - the GBVT Cup. The GBVT Cup similiates a Ryder or President's Cup type of match. You can run it independently of GBVT 6.0, or you can copy the GBVT 6.0 roster & money winnings to the GBVT Cup to be used for team selection.

I highly recommend reading through the instructions for both GBVT 6.0 and the GBVT Cup so you can understand all the changes that have been made.

This will be the final Excel update to GBVT until the VB version is developed.

Version 6.1 has been released.

You will be able to play a tournament with only tournament winners. You will be able to select winners so far from the season you are in, or all of last season's winners. This will be so you can realistically play the season-starting Mercedes Championship like they do in the PGA.
