I haven't even messed with playing a tourny yet, but wondering if it's possible to create a tournament of a couple of rounds at a few courses and make it private so that only the friends you invite can play?

So for example, if you want it like an invitational can you do that?  If so, how?    I only saw the option to post globally or friends list.

Not right now.  You can make it Friends only...but you can't specify which friends.

thanks.   I believe there should be an option to send invites as opposed to letting all friends in.

Yep, you can do a private and put a password on it, then just give it to those you want to invite.

I'd like to see Doyley post a password in the forum on his PGA Tour so we don't get caught up tracking the strays that end up only playing one round. Just use one password for each season so we wouldn't have to check for a new pw for every round.

I've been proactive in letting as many people who play the tour know about the extras that come with it.  I think it's better to show them the scope of the tour and have them stick around.  I've also set up the steam group (in my sig) which makes it an easy way to invite players to get info on the tour.

Understood. I'm thinking that once the game is released, especially on the consoles, there will be people seeing the event and playing it unaware that is is an ongoing tour instead of just a tournament event. We could see a lot of "one and dones" knocking those who are actively on the tour down some notches on the leaderboard, costing them overall throughout the tour.

Where can you set a password?  In my settings is it Private on/off and, if on, it says:

"Set the privacy of this competition.  Private competitions can only be joined by friends."

Nowhere do I see anything about a password...

I thought there was a password after selecting private.  I guess there isn't. My bad lol.
