  • fmagnets Leads Apr-Jun Virtual Tour Leaderboard

    03 Jun 2015

    Tour Legend fmagnets leads the Apr-Jun WGT Virtual Tour quarterly season leaderboard, going into the Major tournament this month.

    If fmagnets' name sounds familiar, it may be from winning the January Bandon Dunes Open, or because he was the first WGT Virtual Tour Champion of the 2015 season in the previous quarterly season (Jan-Mar). With his win in the May Congressional Open, he currently leads the Apr-Jun season leaderboard.

    Shooting 54 and 53 for a combined total score of 107, fmagnets beat out the skilled Tour Legend field by 2 strokes. Tied for second with combined scores of 109 were Agassi1991 and GEHL13, with cyberete and Lizard69 tied for fourth with scores of 110.

    With this month's Virtual Tour tournament being a Major with 400,000 WGT Credits, it's a great opportunity to players in all tiers to move up the leaderboard.
