The in-game ads are a subject that seem to be a thorn in PGA Tour’s side since the beginning of time. I did ask Rawson this question early last year and I think he committed to a “maybe” at the time. Has Concrete talked any more internally about adding a subscription model to the game that would give players the option to permanently sidestep the ads in exchange for game perks? I’m sure there are plenty of people that would happily give money directly to Concrete rather than to ever have to watch another ad for Royal Match ever again.

Sadly I have to hit you with another “maybe” on this, but since then I’ve seen a lot of players publicly share that sentiment. This would also involve a bit of development time to implement correctly, and, as I’ve said earlier, we’re focusing very heavily on improvements right now.

Lastly, who at Concrete would you say is the best PGA Tour player?  Do you guys have your own off-the-grid clubhouse to play with each other or do you hide in plain site among regular clubhouses to experience the game as other players do?

That’s genuinely a tough question. I’ve won a bunch of in-house events with an emphasis on weird bag-building rules, but I get absolutely dumpstered by most of QA in the more standard tournaments. Also the guy who runs our promotions has a LOT of tournament first places to his name…

We have our off-the-grid clubhouse, but several of us have alt accounts embedded in the wild, including our CEO. And Rawson jumps from clubhouse to clubhouse.

In fact, if you’re reading this, please be polite and greet the next person you think might be the Concrete CEO with a friendly acknowledgement. It’d be rude not to.

Thank you so much for your time. And again, we sincerely appreciate everything you do to support the community and make PGA Tour a better game for everyone!
