  • Winners, Transamerica Classic Ends in Dramatic Fashion

    03 Mar 2014

    Scores have been posted and the results are in for the Transamerica Classic on the WGT Virtual Tour in February.

    In the Tour Legend tier, two all-time great WGT players battled it out to claim this month's title. The race to the top was between Virtual Tour champion from just last month, dansamcam, a WGT player since July 2009 with 3 million WGT Credit career earnings, and BolloxInBruges, a player since February 2009 with 4.5 million WGT Credit career earnings, and winner of the 2010 Virtual U.S. Open Championship on Congressional.

    It couldn't have been closer, as both players matched each other nearly shot-for-shot, with 54 in round 1 and 54 in round 2, for a cumulative total of 108. The decision was left to a tie-breaker that compared each player's Back 9 and then hole-by-hole, with dansamcam just edging out BolloxInBruges for the win to capture his second Virtual Tour title.

    Congratulations to all winners and players in the Transamerica Classic at Congressional.


    The Virtual Tour overall season standings feature current earned credits from the January and February events. Not surprisingly, dansamcam has jumped into the early season lead within the Tour Legend tier. Players will continue to accumulate Credits each month, and Major events like the GolfNow Championship this month, will offer a double purse of Credits, helping players move up the season leaderboards.
