  • WGT Virtual Tour: FrenchConnect wins GolfNow Championship

    01 Apr 2014

    All scores have been posted and the results are in from the first Major of the WGT Virtual Tour in the GolfNow Championship.

    Nearly 100,000 virtual golfers competed on Kiawah for a share of the 400,000 WGT Credit purse and a chance to move up the Virtual Tour season standings.

    It was a close race to the finish, as many well-known WGT players battled it out at the site of the 2012 PGA Championship. Ultimately, it was Tour Legend frenchconnect (USA), a WGT member since 2010 who captured this month’s title by firing rounds of 55 and 54 for a cumulative total of 109, edging out five other Tour Legends for top honors, including: Mannyankees (DR), fmagnets (UK), jmoney2224 (USA), CptWomp (CAN) and xXxjasonxXx (USA).

    Congratulations to all winners and participants of the GolfNow Championship.
