  • Announcing: Virtual U.S. Amateur Bracket Matchups

    20 Aug 2019

    The results are in, see who made the cut and who’s playing who later this week!

    We've narrowed the field to the top 64 players (from eligible countries) from the Qualifying round in the 2019 Virtual U.S. Amateur.

    These players have been seeded and broken into four brackets and will compete head-to-head over four days (8/22-8/25), single elimination style, until each bracket has a winner. 

    These final four players will win a trip to Topgolf Las Vegas to compete live in the semifinal and championship rounds – which will be live streamed so you can follow along at home!

    The live stream will include both semifinal matches and the final championship match, as the players compete for the Virtual U.S. Amateur trophy, $2,000 in gift cards, a Phigolf WGT Edition and their choice of tickets to the 2020 U.S. Amateur or U.S. Open. 

    We’ll be posting updates throughout the bracket round (starting Thurs, 8/22), so stay tuned!

    Here's a breakdown of each of the four bracket groups – which matchups are you most looking forward to?

    CC Event #105 runs 8/8-8/9 with multiple 4-hour Clashes, so be sure to play as many games as you can for your club and keep your eyes on the leaderboard. 

    CC Events allow WGT Country Clubs to compete against each other for bragging rights and special in-game rewards. The club that earns the most total points from their Clashes wins!

    Here's how it works: Each event is made up of Club Clashes which last for a limited amount of time (usually a few hours). When your club enters the event, you'll be matched to play with a similar skill level club. Start playing! A timer will keep track of how much play is left in that Clash. Club members from both sides can play as many rounds as they'd like during that time using Club Passes and Superpasses to earn points.
